The Onboarding Instructions provide a simple three step process to have the SnapComms Mobile App installed and available for use. A content administrator can select the Onboarding Instructions from within the Mac & Mobile Settings page from the Content Manager.
Refer to this page to see the available configurations for mobile and how to set them.
It is recommended that the preferred Authentication method has been selected before the instructions are sent out to employees.
You no longer need to enter a password to register to the SnapComms Mobile App.
A preview of the Onboarding document is displayed.
Two options are made available to the content administrator:
Copy to Clipboard
Both options include a unique link for your organization which has the Organization App Code embedded.
If this link is used, the end user no longer needs to enter the Organization App Code manually.
It's recommended that the link be opened on a mobile device. The link can be used on any mobile platform (iOS, Android).
Each end user will be directed appropriately depending on which device/ platform is used.
If the SnapComms App isn't installed, then the end user will be requested to download the App. Once the download is completed and the App is opened, the Organization App Code will be populated and the sign in screen will be presented.
You can download the unique QR Code (with the organization app code embedded) as an .SVG file.
This will allow you to apply the QR Code to your Desktop Alert or Newsletter.
Important: If your SAML integration is NOT correctly configured, then using the onboarding link may display a Blank White Page in the mobile app to your employees.
SNAPCOMMS AUTHENTICATION STEPS
The following steps are based on the SnapComms Authentication and unique download link being used.
Step 1 - Click the link provided to Install/Open the SnapComms App or simply scan the unique QR Code. The Organization App Code will be populated automatically.
