Project > 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.

The information collected from the HT Sign-in app, feeds straight into the daily Site Diary automatically calculating the numbers and hours for the workers on each project. The information also gives the project a list of people on site, which can be used for communications and in the case of an emergency evacuation.

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