How to Install CoachAccountable on Your Mobile Device

CoachAccountable is a web-based app. That means you don’t need to download anything. However, it’s super helpful to have an app tile for it on your home screen, with one-touch access to your coach portal.

Here’s how to do it for Apple devices:

♦ Click the login link in the invitation email from your coach. It’ll automatically open in Safari*.
♦ Log in, and if it’s appropriate for your device, check the box next to “Keep me logged in.”
♦ Tap the Share button on the browser’s toolbar.
(This is the rectangle with an arrow pointing upward; it’s on the bar at the top of the screen on an iPad, and on the bar at the bottom of the screen on an iPhone or iPod Touch)
♦ Tap the “Add to Home Screen” icon in the Share menu.
♦ Enter a name for the shortcut and click Add.
♦ When you click the app tile, bam! You’re put right into your account.

*Note: This doesn’t work for Chrome, Firefox, or other browsers, so just make sure you’re in Safari when you Add to Home Screen. 

And for Android devices:

♦ Click the login link in the invitation email from your coach. It’ll automatically open in your default browser, such as Chrome.
♦ Log in, and if it’s appropriate for your device, check the box next to “Keep me logged in.”
♦ Tap the browser’s menu button and choose “Add to home screen“.
♦ Enter a name for the shortcut and your browser will add CoachAccountable to your home screen.
♦ When you click the app tile, bam! You’re put right into your account.

    I tried doing this, and it worked great, the CoachAccountable icon is right on my screen.

    My question is, can the icon be changed to my own company icon or must it always display as Coach Accountable?

    Thanks!

    Hi Liz,

    Glad to hear the install was easy! You can absolutely use your own icon. Go to Settings >> System >> Branding and set the App Icon there – and as a bonus, this is also the one that shows as the favicon at the top of the browser tab!
