Link A Wagemaster File To An Agrimaster File

If a Wagemaster file name differs to the matching Agrimaster subscription name the following occurs: 

  • The Wagemaster file will appear as a local file status and unlicensed in File Manager. It will not appear grey like Agrimaster files, instead white like a licensed Agrimaster file. 
  • As a once-off action, you will be required to manually link the Wagemaster file in File Manager. 
  • Once you link the file, the Wagemaster file will be re-named to align with the Agrimaster-Plus subscription name.  
  • The re-named Wagemaster file will contain all the data as per the old Wagemaster file and backed up to File Manager. 
  • You will need to delete the old file as there will be 2 copies of the same Wagemaster file, one on the old name, second matching to Agrimaster name. 
  • Please Note: You will have to reinstate any shares you previously had for your Wagemaster file. For instructions on how to do this, read How To Share.

Open the renamed Wagemaster file to check if the data from the previous file is present.
