Questions And Answers
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
Is there an interface to key cabinets or other devices?
No, the KEY ORGANIZER program is a stand-alone-software designed for the recording of manual key issuances.
The KEY ORGANIZER does not support electronic self-service key cabinets, key finders or similar. The implementation of such interfaces is not intended.
May I use the trial version for as long as I want?
Yes! If you are a small company and do not need more than the limited number of data records, feel free to use the trial version just like
Can I simply delete the demo data records?
The KEY ORGANIZER trial version contains default demo data records. This data might irritate you if you want to test your own entries.
To delete the default data records, click on “Use own database”
under “Demo” in the main menu.
How can I enter master keys?
Since every key (or transponder) can be individually assigned to every door or lock cylinder, you can enter any possible locking combination.

Is it possible to transfer master data from an existing personnel database?
Yes, it is possible to transfer your staff data from an existing Excel® spreadsheet once
(Menu: File > Import).
However, any subsequent administration has to be carried out directly in the KEY ORGANIZER program.
Can data be imported from an Microsoft® Access file?
The KEY ORGANIZER can import Excel® spreadsheets, but not Access databases directly.
We would like to help you with the data import, but unfortunately it is not possible to customize the software for for all various different databases.
There is an alternative we can offer which is to ask if someone of your IT department can convert the Access file to spreadsheets first.
The structure of the spreadsheets the Key Organizer can import is shown in two template
files you can find on our download page. Look under LockingPlanTemplate.xls and KeyIssuanceTemplate.
Is it possible to display a locking plan?
To display the key-door-assignments in the form of a locking plan, click on “Locking Plan”
under “Window” in the program menu (F7 key).
What kind of database does the KEY ORGANIZER use?
The program uses its own, fully integrated relational database, see Database Info.
This means that you do not need to have e.g. Microsoft® Access or any other additional program installed on your PC.
This also means that you do not have to pay for additional software licenses and that the KEY- ORGANIZER can be used on any Windows® PC.
Do I have to install Microsoft® .NET Framework?
No, the KEY ORGANIZER runs reliably on any current Windows system, i.e. Windows® XP, Vista and Windows 7 (32 and 64 bit).
You do not have to install the memory-consuming .NET environment.
