Mobile Forms Install Guide for Android

Which App do I Download?

There are two different versions of the app, the Enterprise Version and the Google Play Store Version. As such, there are two separate ways to download and activate these versions. Please download the version your company has decided to deploy. If you're unsure which version is right for you, please contact the Field2Base Administrator for your Company.

Activating Mobile Forms

Now that the Mobile Forms app has been installed successfully, the final step in the process is to activate your Device in the Field2Base cloud.

  2. Enter the Activation ID you received in your email (it is not case-sensitive).
  3. Click on Activate.
