How do I add a TDS Authorization for a new custom number?

Answer / Solution

Authors:  Add TDS Authorization for a New Custom Number


When your new TDS phone number for your account becomes available, it is now time to add a TDS authorization for each author who will be using that number.  


  • Login to the IMC using your Administrator Username and password
  • Click on the Administration tab, Users sub-tab
  • Click on the Author you would like to edit/add TDS authorization
  • Scroll down and select Author Settings

  • Click the Add TDS Authorization » link:
  • From the drop-down menu, select your custom TDS number
  • Enter a unique login and PIN
    • On a custom TDS number, both the login and PIN must match.  This allows the Author to only have to enter in one number at the time of dictating.
    • If no PIN is required this field will be disabled.
  • Feedback Tones:  Select from the choices provided.  See KB255 for more information on TDS Feedback tones.

  • Click the Save button when done. 
  • Your TDS user settings should look similar to this:

  • Then click the Save Changes button at the bottom of the page.
