In this tutorial you will find all the necessary steps to enjoy Additio and have your data synchronized between your devices and the web version.
The first step for being able to use the multi-device license is to sign up. Creating an account is essential, because otherwise you won’t be able to start using the app in any device. You can do it from the web version or directly from the app version installed in your iPad, Android smartphone or tablet.
Sign up for new users:
When you install the app version in your tablet or smartphone for the first time, some informational slides will appear.
In the bottom part of each of these slides, you will see the buttons Sign Up, Log In and I want more information. In the latter you will find more detailed information about the main features of the application.
In order to use Additio, you must sign up. This can be done from a computer (https://web.additioapp.com/) or from the app installed in your device. Each time you want to use the app in your computer, you will have to use this link; you will also find a shortcut in the upper menu in our web additioapp.com.
Once you have completed the sign up process, you will have access to the web version from any computer with an Internet connection and you will enjoy for free during 30 days all the Premium features on the web and in the devices in which you have logged in with your account.
In the bottom part of the app’s and web’s main menu you will see in how many days your trial version will expire, and next to it, you will find Subscribe Now button, which will allow you to subscribe and purchase this license.
NOTE: If you purchase the app from your tablet or smartphone, you will be able to choose any form of payment you have linked to your Play Store or App Store account (the platform depends on the operating system of your device). If the purchase is done in the web version, the payment can be made with your credit card or PayPal account.
Installing the apps and logging into your account:
To be able to synchronize the data between your tablet, phone and web version, you will have to follow these steps in all the devices:
1. Download the app version in the devices you want to use.
2. Access the Settings option in the main menu and log in with your username at Access Additio.
3. Make a first synchronization
You will see that, once you have entered your access data in your tablet and smartphone, the option Synchronize will appear in the main menu and in Settings. This option will let you transfer data between the devices in which you’ve logged in with your user account.
Once you have selected the Synchronize option, the option Synchronize Data will be activated by default. We recommend activating the option Students’ Pictures in the initial load, that is, when you add their pictures in the students’ record. To synchronize the resources, check this tutorial.
NOTE: The first synchronization can take a few minutes if you have a lot of data in your application. If you cannot access the Internet, you will be able to keep using the app in your tablet or smartphone, because an Internet connection is needed only to use the web version and synchronize your data.
From this moment on, the app and the web will be synchronized. Whenever you want to transfer data between your phone or tablet and the server, you will be able to do it easily with a synchronization. This synchronization will only be possible if you have logged into your Additio App account in the device (tablet or smartphone); therefore, if you log out, you will have to log in again.
To understand the idea and the basic functioning of the synchronization, check this tutorial.
NOTE: Keep in mind that with the Additio multi-device version you can link a maximum of 3 devices. If you ever change your device, format it or uninstall the app, Additio will detect it as a new device.
If you ever reach the maximum number of allowed devices, you should see this tutorial.
