This is the BusBoss™ login screen. You will need a scenario name, a user name, and a password to login. Don't worry, the great people at Orbit Software, Inc. (OSI) will help you with that information. There are also other buttons you need to know about. BusBoss can work with SQL server or the desktop version of SQL server, MSDE. The scenarios button allows you to search for other BusBoss™ scenarios located throughout your network. Once you have a scenario name, user name, and password, click OK to enter the program. Cancel will terminate the program.
In the following pages you are going to learn how easy it is to use BusBoss.
NOTE: The default username is "sysad" and password is "admin".
BusBoss™ Login Screen
In order to log-in to additional scenarios, the scenario must be added to the local BusBoss installation. Once it has been added to the list then you are able to log-in to multiple scenario at one time.
NOTE: A scenario is the same thing as a database. Each scenario is stored in its own database. The database name is the name used by the scenario.
Select Scenario Screen
Click [Add] to go into the Add Scenario Wizard.
Add Scenario Wizard Screen - Select Server
Select the appropriate server in the dropdown. Click [Next] to continue with the Add Scenario Wizard.
Add Scenario Wizard Screen - Login
Enter a valid user name and password to log-in to the SQL server. This may not be the same as the BusBoss username and password provided above. Check with your IT staff for valid login information. Click [Next] to continue with the Add Scenario Wizard.
Add Scenario Wizard Screen - Select Database
Select the appropriate database in the dropdown. Click [Finish] to complete the Add Scenario Wizard.
Select Scenario Screen
You may also remove a scenario from the list by clicking on the [Delete] button.
NOTE: When deleting a scenario you are removing it from the list of scenarios available for login. The database itself will not be deleted, and can be added to the list once again by following the directions above.
Select the appropriate database in the list. Click [OK].
Login Screen - New Scenario
Enter a valid user name and password and click [OK]. The selected scenario will now load.
NOTE: Users have the ability to open multiple scenarios at once so they can look at current and prior year's information.
BusBoss™ will now check to make sure there aren't any map issues. If there are, the following screen will appear.
Map Issues Detected Screen
You will not be allowed to login until these issues have been corrected. Make sure everyone else is logged out of BusBoss until Create Topology has completed.
Click [Yes] to Create Topology. Click [No] to Create Topology at a later time.
NOTE: Map Issues must be corrected prior to logging in.
