TMS 8 licence expiry and renewal

Licence expiry

TMS 8 licences generally expire each year. TMS will prompt you when you're getting close to the expiry date with a message similar to the below.


Licence renewal request

To request a new licence, just log into TMSWeb as a supervisor (you may need to log in as MASTER), go to the Licensing feature, then click the Email license request . This will create an email that contain all the information we need to generate the new licence.


Uploading the new licence

You will receive an email containing a .lic file from our licensing team. Save this to your desktop then log into TMSWeb as a supervisor (you may need to log in as MASTER) and go back to the Licensing feature.

Next, click the Upload license button and browse to the .lic file you saved.

Select Submit to be directed to the Upload confirmation page. Alternatively, select Cancel to abandon and return to the Licensing page.

The Upload confirmation page contains a comparison to review the information before activating, between your existing licence and the new licence. For example:

Anything that has changed from the existing licence compared to the new licence is highlighted in yellow.

Click the Activate button to activate your licence or select Cancel to return to the Upload licence page. When activated, you'll be directed back to the Licensing page. A success message will be displayed at the top of the page along with all the updated details of the new licence.
