Mobile Forms Android Enterprise Version Install Guide

Which App do I Download?

There are two different versions of the Mobile Forms app for Android, the Google Play Store Version (more common) and the Enterprise Version (less common). This article covers how to install the Enterprise Version.
If you're unsure which version you should install, please contact the Mobile Forms Administrator for your company.
If you need to install the Google Play Store Version, please read the article (including a tutorial video) on Mobile Forms Android Play Store Version Install Guide.

To Install and Activate the Enterprise App

Adding a New Device

Before starting the Enterprise App installation process, the Mobile Forms Administrator for your company will need to add a new device on the Devices page of the Portal. This will generate an email with your Activation ID.
Mobile Forms Administrators can refer to the article on Managing Devices for more details on adding a new device.

Allowing Apps from Unknown Sources

 If this is the first time you are installing the Mobile Forms app, you will need to update your Application Settings to allow the Field2Base Mobile Forms app to install.

1. Go to your device Settings.

2. Navigate to the Security section.

3. Tap on the box next to "Unknown Sources".

4.  Move the switch to allow Unknown Sources or click on OK on the Unknown sources pop-up.

Downloading and Installing the Enterprise Version

2. When asked if you wish to download, click the Download button.

3. Once the download is complete, a small notification will appear at the bottom of the screen, tap on OPEN.

Additional Steps If You Do Not See The "Download Complete" Notification

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.

1. Enter the Activation ID you received in your email (it is not case-sensitive) in the Welcome to Mobile Forms screen.

2. Click on Activate.

3. Wait for all of your Forms to load on the Field2Base application. Do not close out of the application as it must remain open to load your Forms. It can take anywhere from a few minutes up to an hour to load all of your Forms depending on the number of resources and history for your company.
