I had high hopes for the 'force check in' function in the 10.1 license manager. However, this only provides a very temporary solution remove someone's license. There should really be a KILL license command that does not just disconnect a user for a couple minutes. when you only have once license for an extension, it becomes problematic to not have the ability to effectively remove a license to allow someone else to access it

I would not only like to see the force check in really work but if a license is borrowed and they are on the network - force that to be returned.

still waiting for this functionality. maybe no one else only has one seat of extensions

Currently dealing with my licensed borrowed and the person left the office without returning it. Any method for stealing it back? Thanks!
