Getting Ready to Go Mobile

With the most recent release of the iWowWe product offering, you now have the opportunity to take your Back Office “on the road” using your mobile device. Our first step into the mobile market will NOT require you to visit your local app store to get started … you can set this up right from your device. Here’s how:

Apple iOS Devices (iPad / iPhone)

  1. Open the Safari browser and navigate to https://www.videocontrolpanel.net
  2. Enter your username/password and select the “Remember Me” checkbox.
  3. Tap the Login button. This will bring you to the Home Page of your new Mobile Back Office. You will notice that it looks similar to your desktop version; only for now, it offers just Video Email.
  4. Locate the icon on your Safari browser that looks like an arrow coming out of a box. This allows you to “send” this page to a destination. (On an iPad, this is part of the top menu bar. On an iPhone, this is in the middle of your bottom command bar.)
  5. Click this to open a pop-up window that allows you to “send” this page to your Home Screen as a “shortcut.”
  6. Select the iWowWe icon and add it to your Home Screen. This will bring up a pop-up that will allow you to change the name before adding it to your home screen.

During this process, you may automatically see a Pop Up window that asks if you want to create an iWowWe shortcut. Just click on the link and you’re set to save the last 2 steps.

Android (4.0 and above)

Installation on an Android device will depend upon the browser you are using. For all browsers, you start by doing the following:

  1. Open the browser and navigate to https://www.videocontrolpanel.net
  2. Enter your username/password and select the “Remember Me” checkbox.
  3. Tap the Login button, which will bring you to the Home Page of your new Mobile Back Office. To create your shortcut for each browser from here, use these steps:

Dolphin:

  1. Tap the plus sign (“+”) to the left of the URL.
  2. Tap “Add shortcut to home.” Find the icon on your home page (it may not be the current) and move it to the desired place on your home page(s).

Standard Browser (may vary by device, but is usually labeled “Internet”):

  1. Once logged in, tap the Settings button on your mobile device. This should bring up a settings menu for the current application, which is the browser.
  2. Select “Add to Select Home screen which brings up the next menu
  3. Select “Home Screen” which will put the icon on your desktop.

Chrome:

  1. Once logged in, tap the Settings button on your mobile device. This should bring up a settings menu for the current application, which is the Chrome browser.
  2. Tap the “Star” at the top of the menu which will bring up a bookmark that you can edit before saving.
  3. Change the name (if desired) as this will show below the icon on your home page. Then, tap the Save button.
  4. Tap the Settings button again on your mobile device and then tap Bookmarks. This will bring up the bookmark you just created. Tap and hold the bookmark icon until the next menu appears.
  5. Tap “Add to home screen” which will put the icon on your Home Page.

Regardless of the device you have, once you’ve created this desktop icon, you now have one-touch access to your new mobile version of the back office. For now, this will allow you record and send video emails and view several of your back office reports.
