A. An invitation email with your download instructions and your username and password should have been sent to the email address you gave to Inmar. If you don't see your invitation email in your Inbox, please check your Spam folder, as it may have ended up there. If you still don't see your email invitation, please contact your project manager.
A. No problem. You can leave the InSTORE app at any time. Just tap the InSTORE icon on your phone's main desktop when you want to come back, and hit "Resume." You'll come right back to where you left off.
A. No. InSTORE only uploads your responses and the data we ask you to collect as part of the assignment, along with the time and location of those responses. Note: InSTORE will access your phone's camera to enable in-app camera use and barcode scanning. InSTORE does not access, monitor or upload any other data on your device.
A. If you lose your smartphone during a project and would like to use another device, please email email@example.com and let us know. We'll reset your account so that you can download the InSTORE app again and log in with your original username and password. Note: You WON'T be able to log into the InSTORE app until we've reset your device. Sorry about your phone!
A. InSTORE is designed to minimize the amount of data it uses. A typical store visit will use about 5-10MB of your data plan to upload. If you want to reduce the usage of your phone's cellular data plan, you can connect to a Wi-Fi network prior to uploading you store visits and stay connected until the next assignment has downloaded. It's less convenient, but it works for some. Note: If you do this, make sure you turn your cellular data signal back on after each upload so that you'll receive notifications we send that may be important to your assignment.
A. 95% of the time, the reason you don't have a new assignment on the InSTORE app is because your previous store visit data has not uploaded successfully. Remember: your next assignment usually won't be sent until the data from your previous assignment has been uploaded. Follow these steps to ensure your previous upload has completed:
Remember: your next assignment may take up to 5 minutes to arrive after the previous one has uploaded.
A. Yes. You can switch the device you're using in a project if you need to. Just email firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know that you want to switch devices. When you receive a confirmation email letting you know that your device has been reset, download the InSTORE app on the new device and log in using your original username and password.
A. To use InSTORE, your device must have a cellular data connection. It is technically possible to use Wi-Fi networks, but doing so can result in missing notifications, new assignments and slow down your work process substantially. That's why we insist that users have cellular data capability on the devices they use with InSTORE.
A. You don't need a constant data connection to use InSTORE. InSTORE needs a data connection at the following times: when it sends you a new assignment, uploads your assignment and sends you push notifications. As long as you are connected during these times, you don't need to be connected the entire time you're using the app.
A. If you have questions regarding your store assignments, please contact the project manager you are working with on the assignment.
A. If you can't find the answer to your question in the list above, please contact Inmar InSTORE help desk at email@example.com (please include the project number in the subject line of your email), or the project manager you work most directly with on the project. You can also go to the 'settings" section of the InSTORE app, and hit the "Tech help" button.
