Creating an Account



1.  After opening the App, you'll be brought to a landing page where you can choose between creating an account or logging into an existing account. Choose “Create an account.”  

2.  From here you will be prompted to enter the organization type that you work/volunteer for, your organization name (i.e. Gallatin National Forest), as well as your first and last name, and phone number. 

3.  The next page you will be brought to is the Terms and Conditions page. Read through and then press the black button that says “I agree” at the bottom of your screen.

4.  After agreeing to the Terms and Conditions you’ll be brought to the next page where you’ll enter an email address and password you want your account associated with. You’ll enter the password twice to ensure accuracy, and then have the option to enable FaceID recognition for a quicker login experience. When this is all done, press the “Create account” button at the bottom of your screen.

5.  A loading screen may appear while the account is registering, standby, this will be done soon!

6.  Next, you’ll be prompted to enable location services. We recommend you do this to ensure the best functionality from the App.

quickly transfer data between other Ignis users.
