What is TMS?

TMS (The Museum System) is replacing File Maker Pro for managing the Museum's collection. Up to two users can use TMS at the same time. Currently, only a handful of staff have accounts but more can be added. Museum staff should submit a ticket to request additional accounts.

To use TMS

TMS is installed on a server that's part of our remote desktop services. To use it for the first time, you need to connect to these remote desktop services. After that, you can scroll down to and simply double-click the TMS server (called MOATMS). Here are the step-by-step instructions:

  1. Follow the instructions for Macs or the instructions for PCs to connect to the remote desktop services. You need to only follow this step once - when you first use TMS. After you connect to our remote desktop services once, you just need to open the Remote Desktop application.
  2. Open the Microsoft Remote Desktop application.

  6. Double-click the desktop shortcut for "The Museum Software" to access TMS.
