Sometimes, there might be multiple databases associated with the company. When a user logs in, they will have the opportunity to select which database to connect to. The first screen available will contain a list of previously entered databases. The command buttons at the bottom of the screen are used to manage these databases.

The Mobile ION hyperlink in the upper right hand corner of the screen is used to connect with Mobile ION. Mobile ION is a way to work offline to generate ION reports without a connection to a database. For more information on ION, see ION Reports.
