The Web Tech™ Service module Setup Instructions:

1.Order the Web Tech™ Service module from Micro Key Solutionsand request your Web Address.

This same Web Address will be used by all of the Technicians working for your Company who require access to the Web Tech™ Service module.

No software installation is required on any computer or mobile device using the Web Tech™ Service module except for a standard Web Browser.

Each of your Technicians will then be assigned a personal Username and Password combination (see 2. a. - c. below) which will provide access to only those Service Requests that have been Scheduled for that Technician.


2.For each Technician who will need access to the Web Tech™ Service module, enter the designated information - as identified below - on the specified tabs within an Employee Form:

a.Personal tab - Enter the basic Technician information and, using the Drop-Down Selection List provided, assign Technician as their Employee's Type, keeping in mind that the Employee must be Active - no Ends date can be entered.



Employee Form - Personal tab


b.Security tab - Enter their Database User Name which provides access to the MKMS database, and assign the Technician to the appropriate Security Access Group so they have the appropriate Access Rights to the Service Tracking System information.
