New Jim2 Session

This will launch another session of the same database using your logon credentials.



Note: In the session currently being worked on, if a form is closed, it will disappear in the Nav Tree of both sessions.

Logged Users

View all currently logged on users, as well as any currently locked objects in Add/Edit mode, and by whom.


locked users



Note: Jim2 will lock the GL while other users are dealing with transactions. Any GL changes should be conducted when no-one else is logged in (out of hours), and you have no objects in edit mode.

Change Location

Changes the default stock location (or branch, if branches are enabled) of the current user. This is helpful when entering a number of stock transactions for a location that is different to the user's default.

New Email

Opens the Email Editor screen to compose an email.


Opens the calculator. If the calculator is open when the cursor is in a numeric data field (eg. the purchase order price field), it allows the result of the calculation to be entered into that field by clicking Accept.
