I have been using the free and paid versions of Password Agent for many years. (I used free when I was without a job, but now own a copy.) I recommend it to everyone that ever mentions having to track passwords. I promoted and got my last company to adopt PA as a standard and now I have promoted it to my current company, which has also accepted it as standard software. So I am very happy with the software for many years.

The trouble I have is when I try to use PA to keep track of passwords for OTHER PWA files! In our work environment we have different groups and teams that keep groups of passwords in their own PWA files. So I keep an entry for each of those files and the respective password. But as common and simple as that sounds, the PA software makes it very hard to use! I have not been able to use a LINK field to connect to other PWA files. So, after opening my PWA file and the entry, I have to copy the password and then navigate (reopen) the other file and THEN enter the password. Since the other password file is on a network, it is not easy to find. I much would RATHER be able to enter the path into the LINK field and then use that to switch directly from my current file to the other file.

Please let me know if that could be developed or if there is even a better way to utilize a Password Agent file entry for access to OTHER Password Agent files! The BEST alternative would be to create another icon next to the “Browse link” and “test link” that would be something like “Switch to” that would allow for switching directly to another PWA file.

Please let me know when this is possible!

Yes, you can enter the full path of another -pwa data file into Link field, then the file will be opened in PA when you invoke Open Link. However, since PA shows one instance only then the file will be opened in current PA window, not in different window.
