You Define Access Policies by Group

During system configuration, computers are organized into functional groups and the selected policies are applied to all computers in a group.

Policies configurable on a group-by-group basis include:

CASSIE bullet Session length
CASSIE bullet Reservation style: reservations or first-come-first-served waiting list
CASSIE bullet Minimum and/or maximum age required for access (* see note)
CASSIE bullet Patron type attribute required for access (* see note)
CASSIE bullet Web content filter profile to be applied to the session
CASSIE bullet Warning time (automatic warning at 1 minute left plus at one additional specified time)
CASSIE bullet Whether to allow automatic session time extensions when no other users are waiting for a computer
CASSIE bullet Whether to require users to log in with ID (useful for card catalog computer groups)
CASSIE bullet Whether to provide free printing for all print jobs (useful for card catalog computer groups)
CASSIE bullet Optionally lock screen or end session after a specified mouse/keyboard inactivity time
CASSIE bullet Optionally shut down computers automatically at the end of the operating day
CASSIE bullet Optionally reboot computers automatically between sessions
CASSIE bullet Whether users must accept your custom usage policy statement
CASSIE bullet And more...

* These specific features require that CASSIE be linked to a supported ILS or other data source via Patron Authentication.

The User Experience

Between sessions, computers display a screensaver with their name and status, and the time of day. After logging in, the user is presented with a toolbar that contains functions consistent with their access level. A timer in the corner of the toolbar keeps the user abreast of their remaining session time. Messages are displayed notifying the user of an impending session end or a session time extension. All unprinted print jobs are deleted and all applications are closed at the end of the session. Optionally, you may specify that browser caches, cookies, bookmarks and favorites be cleared as well.

Standard users have access to their account status including account balances and password (if the system is configured to use passwords), their print job list, a screen locking function, and a session-end function.

Staff are presented with additional functions that allow control and/or configuration of the system, depending upon access level.
