Setup Users

Use the Setup Users command (from the Multiusers menu) to put the schedules of multiple users on one computer. You could have more than one user on the same computer, or many users on a local area network storing their schedules on one computer on the network such as a network server (so that a workgroup can view each others' schedules or to conform to a corporate backup strategy).

Tip: There are several ways to setup TimeTo™ for multiple users. To consider all your options before proceeding with this approach, read the How To Use TimeTo for More Than One User help topic.


Enter the names of each user. Indicate the Shared Drive upon which all TimeTo™ files to be stored.

Technical notes: TimeTo™ will create folders within a folder called TimeTos at the root level of the shared drive: one folder for each user. The TimeTos folder will also include a file called user.lst which is a text file containing a list of all known TimeTo™ users.

If you are moving an existing user from a local folder to a shared drive, then to move that user's schedule data from your local drive to the shared drive you click the Relocate Current User's Schedule Files To Shared Drive button. (The Relocate... button is dimmed if the current schedule is already stored in the c:\TimeTos folder.)

On each workstation, install TimeTo™ using the normal installation procedure for TimeTo™. (Alternatively, if you'd prefer to start users off with a copy of an existing schedule instead, you can use the Backup command from TimeTo's File menu to copy the files for any existing user to the location of your choice.) Then launch TimeTo™ on the workstation and Open this user’s schedule by selecting the Choose Schedule From User List command (from the Multiusers menu), and then choosing their name from the list . If their name is not yet on the list, choose Setup Users from the Multiuser menu and add their name... if this still does not work, confirm that the workstation can connect to the drive letter of the Shared Drive in the Setup Users command.

Once you have chosen the user, TimeTo™ will remember the last user selected on that workstation, and open that schedule automatically when launched in the future.

Tip: The Suppress All Alarms feature is especially helpful when viewing someone else's schedule on a network installation of TimeTo™, to make sure that alarms don't sound on your computer when checking someone else's schedule that includes alarms.

Restarting my TimeTo experiment with a fresh schedule

If you are not seeking to have more than one schedule... but just want to destroy the existing one and start over,
exit TimeTo and then use Windows Explorer to delete the timedata.pak and timedata.bak files in your TimeTo folder. TimeTo will automatically create a new blank schedule the next time you launch TimeTo.
