We recommend using the desktop app, making it quicker and easier for you to launch Workiro on your computer. You'll also receive receive push notifications instead of email notifications keeping your inbox tidy.
To download the desktop app for Windows or Mac, go to https://app.getbusy.com/downloads, and select the appropriate option.
If you are signed into the Workiro web app, you can also download the desktop app from Apps, which is available from the Settings menu.
Once you've downloaded the installer, simply double-click it to install Workiro. The app will launch automatically when the installation finishes.
Make sure to pin the desktop app shortcut to your Windows taskbar or Mac dock for easy ongoing access.
Once you have installed, launched and signed in to the app, you'll start receiving push notifications so that you don't miss a thing!
The desktop app will notify you when a new version is available. It automatically installs updates when the app is fully closed. See the following guide...
Deployment in managed environments
Most specific to Microsoft Windows environments - the Workiro desktop app is a user profile application, not a machine-wide application, so you don't need any elevated permissions to install or run it.
If your environment is managed for you, perhaps provisioned by a third party using technology like Citrix or Microsoft Remote Desktop Services, you shouldn't need your provider to deploy Workiro, but we'd recommend letting them know of your intentions as a courtesy.
Other operating systems
If you're using an Android tablet or Chromebook, the best way to use Workiro is in the web browser, but you can add a shortcut to the Workiro login page to your Home page for easy access.
