2. Click Send message to or disconnect client icon in Activity Clients tab, then choose Disconnect or Disconnect All Clients.
If you choose to disconnect all clients, the Disconnecting All Clients dialog box opens; otherwise, the Disconnect Client dialog box opens.

4. For Delay time, enter the number of minutes between when the notification is sent and when clients are disconnected.
