External linking to TOS
« on: May 11, 2020, 10:49:09 pm »
Is there instructions for this other than what's provided when you open up the tool? I hover over my TOS and press shift and it links it but doesnt work right. I tried the external linking tool earlier with TOS both with and without the thinkorswim option checked. When I click on a ticker symbol TI just constantly tries to send it to TOS or something and just autoclicks and becomes unresponsive.

If you come to our website we can give you a linking document to ToS. You can also check out this video on youtube that walks through it:

The big thing that needs to be done is you have to start the programs in Admin mode by right-clicking on them and choosing 'Run as Admin' from the pop-up menu that opens. Without the programs running in Admin mode they will not link.

If ToS does not have the Run as Admin option when you right-click the desktop icon it is already running in admin mode.

Have a good day,
