Unable to run a login macro each time I connect to a session

I hope someone will have a suggestion on this. We are currently using Micro Focus Reflection (v16). When I first open the program at the start of the day, the application runs a specified macro that I have configured to run via the "Connection Action" section of the "configure connections settings" menu settings. I want to be able to run this same connection macro each and every time that the Reflection session reconnects to the system. I have been unable to find the checkbox or what ever is used to be able to do this...

Re: Unable to run a login macro each time I connect to a ses

Butch...this is not too hard to find, just have to poke around a bit. You might want to take a tour of settings in Reflection Desktop so you can become more familiar with the modern new UI. It's actually easier to use than the old version of Reflection once you get used to it.

See Document Settings > Configure Connection Settings > Connection Action....there is a checkbox there that says "Run when reconnecting".
