Introduction

Aptora Mobile II is cutting edge field service management software developed to complement our award winning desktop accounting software package, Total Office Manager. Aptora Mobile II – User Configuration/Setup will provide mobile access to the information and features technicians, salespeople, and even owners need most.

Aptora Mobile II can be accessed from almost any web-enabled device with a standard web browser (such as Chrome, Edge, Firefox) including iPhone®, iPad™, Android™, BlackBerry®, Windows Phone® devices, and computers.

Total Office Manager – User Configuration

These steps must be completed prior to a user being able to log into Aptora Mobile II.

  1. Ensure that the person is on the employee list. From the main menu, click Employees | Employee List.
    • If necessary, set up a new employee by right clicking within the list and select New Employee to complete a new employee record.

  3. Select a user by double-clicking. The first screen will appear with account information. Complete the Mobile User ID text field. This will be the username used to log into Aptora Mobile II.
    • Note: The password that is entered will be used to access both Total Office Manager and Aptora Mobile II if the user needs access to both programs.
    • Note: Mobile User IDs are unique to each user. If you have more than one employee with the same first name, you will need to differentiate between the two.
      • Example: Mike A. and Mike B. are both employees. Mike A. has a Mobile User ID of ‘Mike’. As a result, if Mike B. needs a Mobile User ID, ‘Mike’ cannot be used because that ID is already taken.

Important Message – Aptora Mobile II – User Configuration

When logging in, users may receive a notice that says “Aptora Mobile II cannot connect to your office database because you already have the maximum number of connections allowed. Aptora Mobile II will only allow a certain number of connections (users logged in) to your company database. The number is determined by the number of licenses your company has invested in.

Example: 5 concurrent users = 5 separate licenses.

If this happens, please ask another user to log out or contact your Aptora Sales Representative to acquire more licenses.
