• Free disk space: 15 MB

You will also need a local Wifi network. Your mobile device will have to be connected to the same network as the SQL database, and since mobile devices operate through a Wifi instead of a cabled network, this is a requirement.


(Note that the app is not available on Google Play Store. You will need to send a request to our support desk to send you the installation files and run a manual installation of the app)

Installation of Service 

1. Run TM Stock Taking Service.msi and follow the instructions.

2. Set up a connection with TMMaster v2 database.

            • Select or enter SQL Server Name

            • Enter TMMaster v2 database name

            • Select SQL Server authentication mode with properly rights. 

               Imporant! Selected user must have ‘db_owner’ rights for selected database.

Press ‘Test’ button to check the connection availability.

Please note:

“Connection succeeded” message doesn’t guarantee that selected SQL Server authentication way has all properly rights. It checks availability of connection only.


Set up service logon credentials.
Leave it as reccomended if there are no any specific demands to installation of services.

Finish the installation.


Check the service availability

To check if the service successfully installed and works you need to:
           • Find the server’s IP-address or whatever (i.e. ipconfig in cmd.exe)
           • Keep in mind “Port” value you set at step 6 of service installation.
           • Open browser and write the following address in browser’s address bar:

              YOUR_SERVER_ADDRESS:SERVICE_PORT/api/
              If everything correct you will see an response message from service in browser.

1. In TMMaster v2 go to “System -> Import and export” page and select “Mobile” tab there.


2. In “Service address” field enter service address. 

Important! Server address should be the same as in p.1.6. “Service Address” should be set by following mask: SERVER_ADDRESS:PORT/api/ Example of valid service address: 192.168.132.191:9000/api/
3. Click “Save” button on top left corner of TMMaster v2.


“App import” interface

Changes with stock or orders which were made in mobile app won’t be applied to TMMaster database without approving them.

Mobile App


System requirements:
• Android 4.1.2 – or later version
• Free storage space: - Application: 30 Mb - Additional storage: at least 10 Mb. Total: at least 40 Mb.
Installation:
Currently we don’t provide Google Play and AppStore, so you need to manually install app. Copy and run TM Stock App.apk on your android phone.
Connection to service:
Scan QR code with Service Address generated in “App import” interface and login by TMMaster’s password.


Troubleshooting


• Error “Please check server address and network connection” on the mobile app.
1. Check if the Internet connection is enabled on your smartphone and try again.
2. Check if service is running (p.1.6)
3. Check if service is reachable (p.1.6) from another PC/device in the same network. You can just open browser on any other PC and check it there.
4. Check version of TMMaster and Mobile service. Minor versions should be the same.
5. If steps 1-2 are OK, but step 3 isn’t than it’s a problem with windows firewall. There are two workarounds:
a) Open port for all programs, not only for specific:
- Go to Windows Firewall Advanced Settings
- In “Inbound Rules” section find “TM Stock Taking Service TCP” rule and open it
- On “Programs and Services” tab select “All programs that meet the specified conditions” option b) Disable windows firewall on server (Not recommended)


• Error “Invalid username or password” on the mobile app.
1. Check your login and password. They should be the same as for TMMaster v2.
2. If you sure entered username and password are correct: - Check if SQL Server authentication mode has correct rights: selected SQL Server user must have ‘db_owner’ rights on selected database. - Try to use SA user instead integrated auth mode.
