We’ve finished adding a new feature to Passwordstate 6 which is called User Account Policies. With this feature, you can specify multiple settings for User’s Preferences, their Password List Screen Options, and also their Home Page and Folder Screen Options.
Following is a couple of screenshots which shows each of the settings, as well as the alerts the user will see if a setting is applied – when policy settings are applied to a user’s account, the option is disabled on the screen so the user is unable to change it.

Because you’re able to ignore settings, is quite a flexible solution for creating different policies which can be applied to users accounts. Permissions can be applied directly to the User’s account, to members of a Security Group, or to all users of the system.
We’ve also added a feature called ‘Check for Conflicts’, and this feature will analyse and report any conflicting policies for a user’s account. Without performing this check, user’s and Security Administrator may be confused as to why certain settings have been applied to their account.
We hope you like this new feature once Version 6 of Passwordstate is available.
