Get Ready for Humanity’s iPhone App—Add Shortcut to iPhone Home Screen


Hello, fellow ShiftPlanners! We appreciate the patience you have with us as we wait for our official iOS mobile app to be available for free download in the Apple Store. It has been a lengthy process but we are excitedly waiting for approval! Don’t you sweat it – as soon as the Humanity iOS app is approved, we’ll be sure you’re the first to know.

In the meantime, you can add a shortcut to iPhone home screen for Humanity’s mobile website app. Here’s how:

1. Open on your Safari browser

2. Tap on the middle icon at the bottom of the Safari browser and this will pop up:

Look for our Humanity wizard icon with the text “Add to Home Screen”. Swipe to the right to view the second page of icons or until you see this icon, then tap on it.

3. Name the icon and tap ‘Add’ on the upper right-hand corner.

4. And voilà! You now have a shortcut icon to Humanity on your iPhone.

…at least until we have our iOS app available in the Apple Store. We are just as excited as you are!

We hope this quick little tutorial helps you take advantage of the mobility of our workforce management application. If you have any feedback, questions or comment, please do not hesitate to email us at, comment below, or tweet us @Humanity.
