  3. Review the message. If needed, edit it to meet your needs.
  4. Select whether to send a message or to notify and dismiss users.
    • If you just want to notify other users without making them exit, select Send the message to those using and entering the program.
    • Otherwise, select the Exclusive access option to notify and force users to exit the program. Enter the number of minutes to allow users to exit before the program closes.

To turn off the notification, click Turn Off Notification in the Notify Users dialog box.
