TIM Tools 6.0 Administration Guide

Active Applications

 

The TIM Tools administrator can hide any of the seven tools in the TIM Tools suite. Hiding the application does not delete it from your TIM Tools instance, it only removes it from the menus that your members see. Hiding an application that you are not using makes the menus simpler and easier for your members to navigate.

Some clients prefer to jump right into TIM Tools and utilize all of the tools. Others prefer to introduce tools a few at a time to their membership. We’ve had clients tell us that the first year they plan to use only the TUPS to collect baseline data and create a new technology plan that includes introducing the TIM-O in the following year. The choice is up to you.

To hide a particular application, simply uncheck it from the Active Applications list. Whenever you wish to make it active again, just recheck the box.

Figure 1. The TIM-LP and the TIM-R have been hidden so that they will not appear in members’ menus.
