What do I do if I receive a Multiple Logins Not Allowed error in WebXtender?

Please remember to log out by clicking the Logout Button (Key icon) located in the upper left-hand corner or the page (or selecting File/Logout). If you do not log out in this manner, the system will not recognize you as being logged out and at your next attempt to log in you will receive a ‘multiple logins not allowed’ message. If you receive this message, please be patient.  The server is set to clear multiple logins after 20 minutes.

Can I scan documents into Royal Drive?

Yes. In order to scan documents directly into Royal Drive a piece of software called the Xythos Connector needs to be installed on your department’s multi-function product (MFP). This provides the ability to scan directly from the MFP into your “home” directory on Royal Drive.  The majority of MFPs on campus have the Xythos Connector installed.

Can I control who has the ability to see the imaged documents?

Yes. There are application level permissions which can be set to limit the visibility of the documents to only those who need to view the documents. Security forms are completed by the department’s point of contact specifying permissions for individuals within the department. Those permissions are then set by the Applications Administrator.

Can a work study student be set up to use ApplicationXtender?

Yes. Departments often train their work study students to do the actual scanning of the documents. Care needs to be exercised by departments when sensitve or confidential information exists on the documents being handled by work study students.

Is my department responsible for paying for the required equipment?

The initial scanner and software licenses are currently paid out of the IT Development and Applications budget. Any additional scanners required by the department would need to be purchased through the department’s budget.
