 + 
 +You can also set the session expiration warning here which will warn the user a certain time before the session expires. 
 + 
 +Furthermore a note text field can be enabled which allows the user to leave a note for the transponder usage log. 
 +

 +This credits map defines how many credits are needed for a certain amount of time. 
 + 
 +If there is no credits relation defined here that fits to the selected session time package exactly it will use the largest credits relation and fill it up with the next lower one till all minutes are charged. 
 + 
 +That is also the reason why you cannot delete the one-minute (smallest possible unit) credits relation. 
 + 
 +== Credits per Time == 
 + 
 +{{https://​www.fs-flightcontrol.com/​img/​manual/​features/​settings/​access-control-credits-map-time.png?​nolink|}}

 +== Card Block List == 
 + 
 +{{https://​www.fs-flightcontrol.com/​img/​manual/​features/​settings/​access-control-card-block-list.png?​nolink|}} 
 + 
 +If a user reports a transponder for example as lost you can add its serial number to the card block list. 
 + 
 +In case the user then still tries to use this card it will be rejected. 
 + 
 +== Card Blocked == 
 + 
 +{{https://​www.fs-flightcontrol.com/​img/​manual/​features/​settings/​access-control-card-block-list-blocked.png?​nolink|}} 
 + 
 +Enter the serial number of the transponder that should be blocked here. 
 + 
 +=== User Access Control === 
 + 
 +{{https://​www.fs-flightcontrol.com/​img/​manual/​features/​settings/​access-control-users.png?​nolink|}} 
 + 
 +Here you can change the simulator access settings of individual users. 
 + 
 +First you can search for an existing user, also by scanning an existing transponder card. 
 + 
 +A new user can be added here as well. 
 + 
 +== User == 
 + 
 +{{https://​www.fs-flightcontrol.com/​img/​manual/​features/​settings/​access-control-users-user.png?​nolink|}} 
 + 
 +Users are assigned a name and an optional e-mail address. 
 + 
 +You can then add access card to a user. 
 + 
 +A user can only be deleted again if no cards are assigned to this user. 
 + 
 +== Access Card == 
 + 
 +{{https://​www.fs-flightcontrol.com/​img/​manual/​features/​settings/​access-control-users-card.png?​nolink|}} 
 + 
 +Here you can define expiration date of the transponder card as well as the amount of credits this card should have. 
 + 
 +A card can be also valid indefinitely and credits can be set to unlimited as well. Use the ''​Select''​ button to open the [[dialogs/​select-date]] dialog. 
 + 
 +This might be useful if you do not really need to control the access to the simulator, but would rather like to track its usage: In this case you can hand out cards with unlimited credits to your users and this way track who is using the simulator for how long without actually restricting the usage. 
 + 
 +== Free Credits == 
 + 
 +{{https://​www.fs-flightcontrol.com/​img/​manual/​features/​settings/​access-control-users-card-free-credits.png?​nolink|}} 
 + 
 +You can also set a certain amount of free credits per day, week, month or year. Not used credits will expire after the corresponding period of time. 
 + 
 +This allows the user to use the simulator for a certain amount of time free of charge without reducing his actual card credits. 
 + 
 +Use the button ''​Read Data from Card''​ to see also the currently used amount of the free credits. The button ''​Reset ​Used''​ allows you to set this back to zero again. 
 + 
 +After you are changing the expiration date or any credits options do not forget to use the button ​''​Write Data to Card''​ to actually save your changes ​to the card.
