Once you have authorised your staff to use the app, you have the option to send them invitations to download the app by email and SMS.

According to our registration data, the best times to send invitations (in order of most popular time to register) are:

  • Tuesday at 2pm

  • Thursday at 2pm

  • Monday at 10am

  • Wednesday at 11am

Sending invitations - a step-by-step guide:

Step 1: Log in to your Care friends portal and go to the 'App Users' section in the left-hand menu, then it's 'Manage' in the top tabs.

You should have already uploaded your staff details, if not, click here to learn how to pre-register your staff to use the app.

Step 2: Click on the 'Filters' box, two new drop-down menus will appear. In the status drop-down menu select, 'Authorised'

Step 3: In the top right corner of the invitee list tick the box to select all staff who haven't received an invitation. Alternatively, you can select specific staff members individually by ticking the box next to their name.

Step 4: At the bottom of the screen you will see a taskbar showing how many invitees are selected. Click 'invite'.

If you have a long list of invitees it can take a few moments for the invitations to send.

As soon as the invitations have sent successfully, a green success notification will appear in the top right of your screen.

Over the next 2 weeks, those who do not register right away will automatically receive a reminder each week.

You can check the status of a staff members registration by heading to the manage app users section and hovering over the invited icon:
