Talk to that app's author about adding this feature or getting more licenses.
Our office uses a certain application pretty regularly. The problem is, there are only 5 licenses/logins for said application, and we are 15 people or so.
We may use any of those 5 logins, but we don't know which are in use or not; so when we login into an account in use, it boots the person using it first off. This is frustrating, because the application is already slow as it is, and getting booted off often means we have to restart our task.
I originally though we could have a shared sheet (Google Sheets) and check in and out of logins so people could go on there and see which ones are in use. But I think my coworkers are tired of spreadsheets and want something more accessible, like a desktop notification or something.
I was wondering if there was an app out there that synchronized to applications, and could keep track of which computer has said office app open. it might not let us know which login is in use, but we could at least see who might be using the office app in general.
I did check, our office app does not have a way to inform us which session is in us.
Any advice/help would be much appreciated.
