Getting Started


THE PPI APP:
GETTING STARTED

 

Download the app:

First, be sure that you have updated your operating system to the latest version of iOS or Android. Then, find the new PPI App in your app store. Search for "PPI." The new app is the one with the PPI sphere icon. You may need to scroll down a bit.

If you are viewing this page on your device, use these links to go directly to the app:

 

Alternatively, you can click the HTML 5 icon to use the web browser on your computer or mobile device. Be sure to bookmark the site so you can return to it easily.

NOTE: If you see this icon in the app store or on your device, this is our old app from the 2015 Summer Roundtable and prior programs. The app still functions, but is no longer being updated. For the current app, be sure the icon on your home screen shows the blue sphere pictured above.

Launch the app:

  • Tap the PPI App icon on your device home screen.
  • The first thing you will see is the welcome screen as the app starts up.

Enter your Email Address

  • Enter the email address where you received the invitation to the PPI App.*
  • Check the box to affirm the Terms of Service and App Privacy Policy, which are also available at the bottom of this page.
  • Tap the Submit button to move to the password page.

*If you have an assistant who will be helping you with the app, you should share the same sign-in credentials.


Enter the Password

  • Find the default password that was sent in the email that invited you to the PPI App.
  • Enter the password.
  • Tap the Submit button.

*After you have used the app for a few days, we recommend that you use the Reset Password option on this screen to create your own password.


Choose an Event

Tap the event you want to launch.

You will only see the events associated with your email address. For example, attendees of a roundtable who are not PPI members will not see the year-round event called "PPI Community" in the event list.


Switch Events

After you have explored an event, you may want to switch the app to another event, like the year-round PPI Community, if you are a PPI member.

On iPhones and iPads:

  • Tap the More icon at the bottom right.
  • Scroll down to the bottom of the menu.
  • Tap the Logout/Switch Event button.

On Android devices, you will find the Logout/Switch Event option under the menu icon (three vertical dots).

 

ABOUT LOGGING OUT: There is generally no need to log out of the app, once you have initially signed in. In fact, if you have been using the Add Note feature that is available throughout the Agenda section, you should email your notes to yourself before logging out, as logging out will purge your notes from the app. If the app seems to be malfunctioning, the best solution sometimes is to log out of the app and log back in to refresh all the content and connections.
