PC MSDTC Settings

TimeTrak uses Windows inbuilt MSDTC function to update both the MYOB Exo and TimeTrak databases at the same time to ensure your data is in real time.

Below are the settings on your PC that are required if either the TimeTrak Outlook Add-In or Administrator Console are installed. These settings are also required for TimeTrak Professional disbursement and posting to work without issues.

Domain Settings

All PCs need to be on the same Domain as the SQL Server so TimeTrak can successfully communicate back to the database.
