HT Sign-in App > Setting up the HT Sign-in App on your Device

*Admin User only*

The HT Sign-in App works as an electronic Sign-in Book for the HammerTech system, and is available for workers and/or visitors to sign in and sign out when on site.

There are 2 types of Sign-In Devices that can be created through HammerTech. The full functionality (for use with the HT Sign-In app, where the QR code refreshes periodically), and the limited functionality (printable, static QR code). Please refer to our Limited Functionality QR Code article for steps on how to set up the static QR code.

This article will explain how to set up the HT Sign-in app on your device using the full functionality.

Note: The HT Sign-in app has been primarily designed for use on a tablet.


Before following these instructions, make sure the following requirements have been met.

  • Administration User - only Project, Region or System Admin Users are able to manage the HT Sign-in app setup. If you are not an administration user, speak to the System Admin of your company to request the required permission.
  • Access to your company’s Google Play or App Store account - the HT Sign-in app needs to be downloaded and therefore requires you hold an account for the Google Play (for Android devices) or App Store (for IOS devices). If you are unsure of your account details, contact the System Admin of your company.
