Getting Started with the Mobile App

NOTE: This feature is available in the Standard, Professional, and Enterprise versions of myStratus Desktop. Spectra does not include this feature.

You can use the myStratus Mobile app to access much of your Stratus data from a mobile device. View your clients, schedule, sessions, appointments, tasks, phone calls, emails, text messages, and even a quick snapshot of your finances. Another feature available in the U.S. for clients who utilize TSYS Credit Card Processing is the ability to process credit cards from the mobile app. Not only can you view your data, but you can add, modify, or delete records. The myStratus Mobile app maintains a local copy of your Stratus data, so you can work even when you don't have a data connection! Any changes will automatically be synced when you're connected again.

You must have a current subscription to myStratus in order to use the myStratus Mobile app AND your mobile device must be authorized.

  3. Choose the user from the drop-down list. Note: If the user isn't in the list, you must set them up in myStratus before continuing. See also: Setting up Users.

  4. Once a device is up and running, the Device Name and Model will be filled in and the Last Sync column will display the last time the device was synced with the myStratus databaseNOTE:  You will not see the Device or Device Model until that user logs in.

  5. Use the Inactive column to deactivate a mobile device. When a device has been deactivated, the app will remain on the user's device, but the local database will be cleared and they will no longer be able to use the app.
