Tapping In Process
    • The first CWS tap on with your Smart badge for the day requires e-Password for authentication for each computer
    • The next tap on if greater than ten minutes will only require PIN

Instant Access

  • Instant access within the same workstation:
      • If a user taps off and returns to the same CWS within ten minutes, the user can tap on for instant access to the CWS without entering a PIN number
      • If another user logs on to the CWS you’re working with, your instant access is terminated
vanderbilt card troubleshooting tips
Vanderbilt Card Troubleshooting Tips:

Things to consider:

  • Make sure the PIN number is set up correctly. The PIN number cannot be three or four sequential or similar numbers
    • Unacceptable examples: 1234, 5678, 1111, 2222, 1333, etc.
  • Do not puncture the Vanderbilt Card for any reason
    • Other HID-type cards may interfere with the card reader
    • Make sure that *only* the VU ID badge is being tapped onto the card reader
    • If another ID card also has the chip/code it may interfere with the card reader
