Managing records

Creating, editing and deleting records

After you have created a folder, you can create records to hold information about your logins and passwords. If you have several e-mail accounts, it can be difficult to remember each login/password combination. Network Password Manager can solve this problem easily. For example, you could create a subfolder called "My mailboxes" and then use the context menu (or INS key) to add records containing information related to each of your e-mail accounts.

Adding new records

Main tab

Enter a record name that will help you remember what this record contains (e.g. Yahoo! Mailbox 1) and fill in the corresponding login and password fields. For increased security, you can use Network Password Manager's Password Generator feature. Enter the Website (URL) related to the login in the "Url" field (e.g. http://mail.yahoo.com). Other fields will be filled in automatically. The "Expired" field indicates the date (in dd.mm.yyyy format) and time of password expiration. It is recommended that you create a new password after this date.

Custom tab

For some records, you may wish to store additional information. In the Custom 1 and Custom 2 fields you can keep one line of text. However, in the Custom 3 field multiple lines of text can be stored.

Files tab

Here you can add files associated with the current record. Open the dialog window to select files. Then simply choose the file to be added. To add more files, just repeat this procedure. To delete a file from the list of attached files, select it and click the "Delete file" button. Deleted files are only removed from the list, not from your hard drive.

Comment tab

Here you can enter more comments for current record.

Editing records

Any information you have entered can be easily changed. To edit the current record right-click it and choose "Edit record." All data can be edited in the window that opens. You can also open this window opens double-clicking a record or by selecting a record and pressing the "Enter" key. When the "Changed" message appears in the window's caption, the changes were accepted and are in effect.

Deleting records

Records can be deleted by using the context menu or by pressing the "Delete" key.

Previewing records

You can browse the folder tree to preview all data contained in your records. Data cannot be changed while previewing, but you can copy it to the clipboard using the buttons to the right of the fields. Attached files are shown inside the "Files" tab when the "File preview" field is checked. The size of previewed files can be defined in the Program Options. Text in the "Url" field is a clickable link.
