Using PPM Pro for Mobile

PPM Pro for Mobile provides access to timesheets and tasks, allows users to report project/task or Admin time, and allows timesheet approvers to approve timesheets

Supported devices include Apple and Android phones and tablets using Chrome, Safari, and MS Edge (Chromium based). See general System Requirements for PPM Pro. 

Log In

Using the browser on your device, log in to PPM Pro as you would for the web application at https://<yourSubdoman> PPM Pro will recognize that you are using a mobile device, and will serve up PPM Pro for Mobile. Similar to the web application, your username will be persisted for subsequent logins so you don't have to enter it every time. The first screen displayed after you log in depends on what view you had open during your last session.

If you are using Single Sign-On, use your SSO URL. You will skip the PPM Pro login screen, and if your security token has not expired you will go directly into the application. If the token is expired, you will be redirected to your identity provider for authentication.

Note: We strongly recommend you add a shortcut to PPM Pro for Mobile to your home screen. Accessing the application this was will provide you with more screen real estate (no browser navigation or location bar) and better user experience. The directions for adding a shortcut are below.
