When you turn on a MachineMetrics Tablet for the first time, you are presented with a white screen with the MachineMetrics logo and the "Authorize Tablet" button, as seen below:
Before you tap the 'authorize tablet' button, make sure you have a secondary device on hand, such as either a smartphone or a computer. On your secondary device, Open a web browser and head to the page "app.machinemetrics.com/tablet". Your screen will say "Please enter your tablet authorization code" and there will be a space to enter a 4-digit code.
Keep this screen open and readily available as you tap "Authorize Tablet" on your tablet screen.
Your tablet will now display a 4 digit authorization code as well as a timer.
Enter the code in the space provided at app.machinemetrics.com/tablet before the time expires. If for any reason you do run out of time before you are able to enter your activation code, there's no need to worry; a new 4-digit code generates automatically, and the timer will restart.
After a few moments, your tablet should jump you to a screen letting you know it was successfully authorized.
The 'authorized' screen will display briefly. One the next screen you can select whether you want the tablet to display utilization or performance and assign the tablet to a specific machine before jumping to the Workcenter View.
