How do you prioritise TMs within a project

I recently had a project with multiple TMs. I wanted to set an order of priority, so a result from my own TM would be preferred over a result from another TM, but didn't know how to do it.

I ended up pretranslating with only my own TM, but then as soon as I added the other TMs back in, they seemed to overlay mine, so for every segment I had to go and individually change it back.

Does anyone know how to set the order of TM preference?
