Ordering a branded app based on Linchpin Mobile for your company requires you to review and accept our terms of service for this product.


Here's an overview of all the information and files we need to set up your custom app based on Linchpin Mobile. Every page contains detailed information on the information required to set up your company's custom Linchpin app.

We recommend reading all information up front and then collect the single files, text labels, and settings on a Confluence page, a shared folder, or a shared document in your company.
