Web Companion app

Web Companion app is now available as part of an open beta allowing you to access Companion app from a browser. Unlike the Sign In App management portal, web Companion app is linked to individual staff members ensuring people only have access to their own bookings.

Important

While the team has worked hard to provide a stable version of web Companion app for this beta, it's important to be aware this is pre-release software and it may contain some bugs.
