An extended check-out behaves just like a regular check-out in that they can continue to run for a time, up to two weeks, even if their connection to the Internet is lost. But, unlike regular check-outs Measure does not automatically log out when closed and can continue working when restarted.
|Internet connection required to initially login||Yes||Yes|
|License automatically becomes available if Measure stops communicating with server||Yes, after 15 minutes to 24 hours - user specific setting||Yes, after 2 days to 2 weeks - user specific setting|
|Measure continues to run if network unavailable||Yes, for 15 minutesto 24 hours - user specific setting||Yes, for 2 days to 2 weeks - user specific setting|
|Measure is in constant communication with server when Internet is available||Yes||Yes, extended check-out does not change this. It only changes how long Measure continues to run if the connection is lost.|
|Measure logs out when closed||Yes||No|
|Internet connection required to start measure||Yes||No - if already logged in and duration has not been exceeded, user may continue working.|
|Checkout may be revoked||Yes||Yes - but caution must be used. Because a revoked license is immediately made available for use by another user, there is the possibility that the original user may still be using Measure simultaneously while disconnected from the Internet. For this reason, revocation of extended check-outs is monitored and RFMS reserves the right to disable this feature if abused.|
Our final post in this series will discuss revoking check-outs.
