Devices and Areas with TinkerAccess:[edit]


Q: What Should I do if TinkerAccess locks up?

A: Please report it in the #TinkerAccess channel on Slack. Do not simply remove power from the TinkerAccess node as this can cause data corruption.

Q: What if someone badges over me during my session?

A: If someone badges over you during your session they will simply replace you as the user being recorded. It will not interrupt the machine power/operation.

Q: I have taken the class but am not in the system.

A: Contact the instructor to have them manually add you.
