Connections - Perspective Sessions

Perspective Sessions

Much like the Designers page, the Perspective Sessions page shows a ton of information regarding currently open Sessions. All the open Perspective Sessions are displayed on the page along with some basic information about each session, such as what user is logged into each session and the project they are currently working on, and their IP address. Each session has a Details button that allows you navigate all the elements of a session: pages, view instances, and components.
