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. You can use any email you like, but if you use the same with which you purchased the Premium app version (individual license for each device), you still have to sign up. 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 users with Premium App license
To sign up from a computer, access https://web.additioapp.com/, press the Create Account button and fill in the cases with your personal data. Each time you want to use the app from your computer you will have to use this link. You will also find a shortcut in the upper menu in our web additioapp.com.
If you want to sign up from your tablet or smartphone, access the section More Features that appears in the main menu of the apps and press on the button Sign up and enjoy 7 days for free!
Once you have signed up, you will have access to the web version in any computer with an Internet connection and you will enjoy for free during 7 days all the Premium features in the web version 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 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.
