Getting Started with the Mobile App

In order to access your Wildnote forms on your mobile device, you will need to download and install the Wildnote mobile app on a supported iOS or Android device. We'll also walk you through the steps to setup and test the app before collecting data.

First Time Setup

Install app on phone or tablet.

Open app

Sign in with the same Wildnote credentials you use to Sign In to the Wildnote web app. 

  • Once you are signed into the app, you will remain signed in until you go to the Settings page and Sign Out of Wildnote. (Even if you force quit or kill the App you will remain signed in when you reopen the App.)
  • You can find the Settings page by clicking on the three dots on the top right corner of the app.

Projects and Surveys


When you log into Wildnote you will see your list of projects. If you do not see any projects, ask your Wildnote Admin to make sure you have been assigned to projects. These articles might help:
Invite a Team Member to your Company Projects
Manage Project Member Roles


Click on any of your projects to see the associated forms and surveys. The drop-down list at the top allows you to pick a form to start collecting data. As you start collecting data you will see the completed surveys listed at the bottom of the screen.  A red bubble with numbers indicate that the survey has not been synced to the cloud. The sync will automatically start when you Save and Exit a survey. If the sync stops because you have navigated away from the app, simply pull down on the screen to start the sync again. A green check-mark indicates the sync is complete and the survey has been successfully uploaded to the cloud.


Don’t have an internet connection while out in the field? Don’t worry. You can collect your data offline and restart the sync when you have an internet connection.
