Can I use Chintaro on my desktop and phone at the same time?

Chintaro users are only allowed to be logged in to either Chintaro Classic (Desktop) or Chintaro Mobile at any given time. If you log in to Chintaro Mobile while you are running Chintaro on your computer, then you will be prompted to log out:

Click No to keep your Chintaro desktop session open and running. A second licence will be allocated for your mobile app session. 


Click Yes to close your open Chintaro desktop session. Your licence will be transferred to your mobile app session. 


You can track your current licences on the Home screen in the Chintaro (desktop). More information about licences can be found here: Current Licence Usage


I'm not a Cloud user - can I use the app?

Only Chintaro Cloud users can take advantage of using the Chintaro Mobile app. If you would like to learn about the other advantages of moving your database to Chintaro Cloud, click this link to learn more or get in touch with our team by emailing support@chintaro.com.au.


We have multiple databases - how do we swap between accessing each individual database? 

Each database has been provided with an API ID which is unique to the database. The API ID of the database is automatically populated by Chintaro Support, and can be found in Chintaro > System Maintenance > Preferences > System > API ID:

 


To swap between databases in the app, remove the API ID field and key in the unique API ID of the database you want to view, as noted from the field in Chintaro Classic (Desktop version). 


We have basic (7AM-7PM) licences to Chintaro - will the data in the app be available 24/7 or just during these hours?
