Accordance will appear within a shared folder in your desktop after you sign into the machine.

Opening Accordance in Mac OS X


Once you log in to the Mac OS X partition of the Lab machines, you will find an icon on your desktop labeled, “Mac$”.  This is the shared drive that stores the Accordance application and background support information.


 

Connect to server

**If the shared folder does not show up after log in, you can use the connect to server command ( command + K ) and use the server address of smb://accordance.pts-eden.org/mac$


Double-Click the application from the folder.



Accordance will prompt you to create a location to save your information to.  

**Important note:  Due to our security and privacy setting for all computers, you will have to repeat this step each time you sign into a computer. 


Please set the save location to your H: drive by:

  1. On the left hand side of the selection window, Locate the " Shared" section 
  2. This will display a list of connected servers, please select files03.pts-eden.org* 
  3. Select Users$ and your username$
  4. Click Choose and the default save location is set.

Here is an image of the recommended location for saving Accordance data to your H: Drive in Mac OS X


*If the list of connected servers does not show up by default, you can display them using the show option.  Located to the right of the Shared section, you will find a "Show" option that will appear as you move your cursor.  Please see the image below for a quick reference.
