To add or join your company, tap 'Complete My Profile', 'Find My Company', and search by the company or organization name.

Help - The app won't install.

Usually, when the app won't install it's for one of two reasons, either;

  1. Your phone doesn't have enough storage space;
  2. Your phone's software or "OS" is too old.

When you try to download the app, it should advise which of these scenarios is occurring. If you're out of storage space, see if there are any photos or videos you no longer need, then delete them and try again.

If your phone's software is too old, it will usually say something like "Your device is not supported" or the download button will be greyed out. In this situation, it would pay to see if your phone has any updates available. You can find out our supported versions here.

If you already have an account, but can't log in, try resetting your password.
