  11. This page enables administrators to specify a custom caption to be displayed in the login screen. This caption can be specified in the Caption displayed at login text box.T he Error message displayed upon subscription expiry text box contains the default message that would appear upon expiry of a subscription. The contents of this text box can be changed if required. The Warning message displayed prior to subscription expiry text box contains the warning message that would appear prior to the subscription expiry. As you can see, this message contains a variable [no_of_days]. This variable indicates the number of days left for the subscription to expire and hence should remain unchanged. In order to alert the user about the impending subscription expiry without him/her having to login to the user interface, eG sends an email to the user ID. The body of this email can be customized using the Mail alert sent prior to subscription expiry text box as depicted in the Figure 8. In the default contents of this text box, the variable [UserID] refers to the ID of the user whose subscription is about to expire, [ManagerID] refers to the ID of the manager that is being used by the user, and [no_of_days] refers to the number of days left for the subscription to expire.  The Subscription manager's mail ID field indicates the mail ID from which the warning messages prior to the subscription expiry are sent to different users.
