The screen that users view is a pre-designated read-only screen. They cannot click any buttons, perform screen transfers, or any other interactive operations. However if, for example, 1000 remote operations persons need to review the performance of a system's processes, they can by using a broadcast session to view the CIMPLICITY screen that reports the processes.
