Downloading the App
The CareTime mobile app is available for both iPhone and Android.
Logging in to the Mobile App
Your Agency Code and User Code will be provided by your agency administrator.
- The Agency Code (or Agency ID) can be found in the top left section of the dashboard (near your agency name and IVR number) or in the Agency Detail section in the main CareTime application.
- The User Code is the 4 or 6 digit Employee Code found in the Caregiver/PA section in the main CareTime application. It is the column on the left when looking at the Caregiver/PA list.
- Birth date is the caregiver's day of birth which is set in the Caregiver/PA edit screen towards the bottom of the Location tab. PLEASE MAKE SURE CAREGIVER'S DOB IS ENTERED ON THEIR RECORD.
When the app asks permission to share location, the caregiver must select yes in order for the app to use GPS to verify their location. If they are using the bluetooth device to clock in and out they must enable the app to use bluetooth.

Navigating Through the App
- Today Page
- When logging in, you will be brought to the Today page. This lists any jobs that the caregiver can clock in to as well as any scheduled jobs for the day. You can also see if the caregiver is clocked in to any jobs currently or if the caregiver completed any other visits today.
- At the top of each consumer’s name in the app, you can see how many miles away their home is. If you click on the miles, your phone’s map will open with the consumer’s address set as the destination.
- If you click on the consumer’s name, you can view their care plan, add a note, and clock in.
- Hit Clock In and then confirm that you want to clock in, once that is done you will be brought back to the Today page.
- To clock out, under Clocked in Jobs select the consumers name and then hit Clock Out, you may be required to complete a few extra steps to complete the clock out such as answering questions or collecting signatures.
- Once you clock out, you will see the visit under Completed Visits. Please make sure there is a green checkmark next to the visit, signifying that data has made it over to CareTime. If there is a red exclamation mark, it means your data did not send. This is usually due to having no internet connection. Make sure you find a connection and refresh the app until the visit shows the green checkmark.
