I Have a Question!

    Do I have to report usage to Bentley?




          Yes. Reporting is more reliable,
          accurate, and secure.
I Have a Question!

    What versions of MicroStation have been
    run this reporting period?



          You can quickly determine this by
          isolating a site and running an
          Application Usage report.
I Have a Question!

    When was the last time that someone ran
    Descartes and who was it?



          First report on Last Application Used;
          then run Application Usage report for
          that date.
I Have a Question!

    What was my peak monthly usage of
    MicroStation in the last year?


          An Application Usage by Month ELS
          report will reveal MicroStation usage
          by month.

   If I manage all my sites with one SELECT Server, how
   will I know which applications are available to which
   sites?

            applications; available under View License
            File.
I Have a Question!
