DOWNLOADING THE MOBILE APP
The Nexonia Timesheets mobile application is available for free on iOS, Android™ and BlackBerry® 10. The application will require you to login with your Nexonia credentials. Once you’ve done so, you’ll be able to create, submit and approve timesheets directly from your mobile device, such as a smartphone or tablet.
To download the Nexonia Timesheets mobile app, visit the corresponding app store:
Search for “nexonia timesheets” and install the “Nexonia Timesheets” application. The app icon should look similar to one of the icons below:
LOGGING IN TO THE MOBILE APP
Once you’ve installed the application, you’ll need to open the app and log in with your Nexonia credentials. You only need to enter your login credentials once, the first time you open the application, or if your Nexonia password changes. The application will allow you to remain logged in.
Logging in to Nexonia:
Once you’ve downloaded the application, tap the Timesheets icon to open the app.
The first time you open the Nexonia Timesheets App, the application will ask if you’d like to give the following permissions (note: you can change these later if needed in your app or phone settings):
“Timesheets” Would Like to Send You Notifications. This allows Nexonia to send you notifications and alerts on your mobile device, such as notifying you when timesheets are submitted, approved or rejected.
Allow “Timesheets” to access your location while you use the app? Your location is retrieved when your company requires it to be associated with time entries.
You’ll then see a screen thanking you for downloading Nexonia Timesheets! Once you hit “Continue...” you’ll be taken to the Login screen.
Enter the e-mail address associated with your Nexonia profile and your password.
Tap “Login” and the application will log you in. Provided you are connected to the internet on your mobile device, the application will do an initial synchronization to ensure the information from your web profile is copied to the mobile app, and back again.
SYNCING THE MOBILE APP
Nexonia’s mobile application syncs your Timesheets mobile app data to the Nexonia server. This transfers any new information, such as recently added time entries, between your web profile on the server and your mobile application. For example, if you added a time entry on the web, but aren’t seeing it on the mobile app, it may not have synced yet.
By default, the application will sync when you start the app.
The sync is triggered in one of two ways:
Background Sync (default setting) - the application will sync when you first open the app and every 5 minutes in the background thereafter, as long as you have an internet connection to your device.
Manual Sync - you always have a manual sync option located on the homescreen. Tapping on the arrow in the top right corner will sync any new data immediately, as well as update any setup changes your administrator made to the company profile. You can also trigger a manual sync by pulling down from the homescreen.
You can see the last time the app synced under your name on the homescreen.
You can limit when the app syncs, depending on the internet connection:
From the mobile app homescreen go to "Settings" > "Background Sync"
Your options for "Background Sync" are:
- Enable: Sync automatically whenever you’re connected to the internet;
- Wifi only: Only sync automatically when you’re connected to wifi;
- Disable: Turns off automatic sync. You can still sync manually.
