The easy way to see if a user is signed on (using AS/400 Operational Assistant).
Press (ESC) or type "GO ASSIST" and then select option 10 (Manage your system, users, and devices), then select option 12 (Work with signed-on users).
Below is an example of what you will get. Notice the very useful options above and below the user list and in particular option (F13), which allows you to sequence by Display Station or User. The field "User Description" can be displayed instead of "Activity" by pressing (F11) and selecting the advanced assistance level.
