Company Computers 💻

When you're installing Workpuls on computers owned by the company, you will want to use this option.


From here you can either:

  • Download Workpuls
    This option is great if you would like to download Workpuls to a USB drive, or share it via an internal file sharing app or install via Terminal.

  • Copy & Paste your unique Installation URL
    This option is great if you would like to share the download file with another member of your team, for example an IT Administrator or even to employees to install directly.

After Workpuls is installed the device/user will automatically appear in your dashboard.

Personal Computers 👨‍💻


When you're using Workpuls on Employee's personal devices it's important you use this option.

To invite employees, Workpuls will ask you for their:

  • Email Address

  • Full Name

  • Team

After you send the invitations to employees:

  • They will be sent an invitation via email to join Workpuls

  • They will be asked to register an account with Workpuls

  • They will need to download and install Workpuls on their device

  • They will need to log in to Workpuls after installation

After they have logged into Workpuls they will automatically appear in your dashboard.


Note: on MacOS due to this system's privacy features, employees will see a popup window asking to allow Workpuls some permissions. Users should click on Open system preferences and allow Workpuls accessibility functions. The window after the installation looks like this
