The Actual Usage Tracking Software relies on network connection, through ethernet or WiFi, to communicate with QReserve. When users try to log in, the software will authenticate their credentials against your lab's user accounts. Their log-in and log-out times will automatically be sent to your QReserve account for tracking and billing records.

When there is no network connection, the software will still allow you to log in and use your equipment. The software will accept any username and password, and track usage time for the entered username. The data will be saved locally within the software as a CSV file, which you can export. Export the usage data from the settings panel, which you access by entering 'admin' as the username with your admin password.
