TBC Community Forum Decorum

The TBC Community is for customers and end users to collaborate, teach, learn, and encourage one another with new and exciting workflows within TBC. The TBC Community is a professional space and contributors are required to maintain a constructive tone. Any intolerance, personal insults, and negative comments will be flagged and removed with all perpetrators being removed from the group without warning.

If there are TBC bugs or issues that need to be addressed, please first reach out to your local Trimble Authorized Dealer or communicate with a Trimble representative in a private message. 

Thank you for your understanding and support as we all build the TBC Community into a productive environment to learn and contribute to improving TBC’s survey and construction workflows.
