User, Enrolling a New

 

A "user" is someone who has set up personal records and occupies one of the nine user slots that Diet Power can handle. If nine users have already enrolled, a new user cannot enroll unless the Master User deletes one of them to make room. To see how many users are already enrolled, consult the User List. For instructions on deleting a user, see User, Deleting a.

 

There are two ways to enroll as a user:

 

To enroll from the Windows desktop:

 

1. Double-click Diet Power's household icon: image\diet0000.gif. Diet Power's logo screen will appear, followed by the "Who are you?" dialog, which includes the User List. (Exception: If no other users are enrolled, Diet Power will take you directly to the Personal Information Form described in steps 2 and 3.)

 

2. Click the button labeled "I'd like to enroll as a new user or import all of a user's records from an earlier version." Diet Power will open a blank Personal Information Form.

 

3. Fill out the form (for instructions, see Personal Information Form) and click OK. Diet Power will open a dialog asking for your current weight.

 

4. Type in your current weight and click OK. Diet Power will ask you to confirm the weight.

 

5. Confirm or correct the weight. After OKing it, you'll be given a second form that asks for your goals.

 

6. Key in your goal weight and target date; then click OK. Dietpower will set up your files and take you into your first session.

 

To enroll while another user is working:

 

1. Ask the other user to open a blank Personal Information Form by going to the Home Screen and:

 

   clicking the User List buttonimage\diet0030.gifand clicking the button labeled "I'd like to enroll as a new user or import all of a user's records from an earlier version."

 

or

 

   opening the User Menu (by clicking the word User) and choosing "New User."

 

(If the other user has changed the working date, Diet Power will refuse to enroll a new user until the date is reset to today. For instructions on resetting the working date, see "To Change Your Working Date" in Calendar.)

 

2. Fill out the Personal Information Form (if you need instructions, click here) and click OK. Diet Power will open a dialog asking for your current weight.

 

3. Type in your current weight and click OK. Diet Power will ask you to confirm the weight.

 

4. Confirm or correct the weight. After OKing it, you'll be given a second form that asks for your goals.

 

5. Type in your goal weight and target date; then click OK. Diet Power will set up your files and take you into your first session.
