Home screen and settings

Home screen

On the home screen, employees will find all the basic information and functions they need to start their working day.

Below the name and profile picture (1) in the centre of the yellow box is the time tracking function (2) with start and stop buttons. If time tracking is running, further information can also be displayed here (more on this here).

The ‘Your working day’ area (3) is located below the time tracking function. All recorded times and schedules for the current day are displayed here with the time, target and actual duration. The reload button next to the heading can be used to reload the data in order to view subsequently recorded entries without having to close and reopen the app. Object and planning notes (4) are displayed directly here and can be translated into the app language by clicking on the translation button image-20240507-070743.png (more information here).

At the bottom is the menu (5) with the sections Times, Chat & Tickets (if applicable) and More. Behind ‘More’ (6) are further sections: Profile, Help, Vacation as well as external links, Forms and E-Learning. All sections are explained in detail in this documentation.

Employees will find two icons in the top right-hand corner of the home screen:

  • Behind the smiley, employees will find their sticker collection (7), where they can view all the stickers they have received.

  • Behind the bell icon, employees can read the news (8) published by the system administrator.

Click on ‘Home’ to return to the home screen from other areas.

The following configurations and actions can be made here:

  • Profile picture:
    The profile picture that is displayed on the home screen and in the chat can be saved and changed here. By default, the profile picture is a random avatar. Click on ‘Change profile picture’ to open the photo gallery or the camera. Once a picture has been selected or taken, the cropping can be adjusted.
    The profile picture is also displayed to the team or object leader in the Blink Manager app.
    You can also access this setting by clicking on the avatar or profile picture on the home screen.

  • Receive push notifications: Here you can set whether the Blink me app is allowed to send push notifications, which are then also displayed when the app is closed.

  • Language selection: Here you can choose from one of the 19 available languages for the app.

  • Share chat with another device: If the profile is set up on a new device, the chat can be shared with the new device using the QR code or the personal chat code (more on this here). This option is only visible once a chat has been set up.

  • Log out


Click on ‘More’ in the menu on the far right to access the ‘Help’ section.

The following information can be called up or actions can be carried out here:

  • Information about the user and the current system, such as the app version, can be found under Info. This information may be relevant when communicating with support.

  • This online documentation can be accessed directly in the Help and data protection section and the Blink data protection declaration is also linked.

  • Under ‘Support’, the user can find the contact information to get in touch with the Blink support team by phone or email.

  • The permissions section shows which authorisations have already been granted to the app. As a rule, the necessary permissions are requested the first time they are required for a certain function (e.g. access to the camera when a QR code is scanned). If a permission is missing, it can be granted directly here.

  • At the bottom of the ‘’More actions‘’ section is the Log function, in which the system saves all technical app processes. The texts are not relevant for the user themselves, but provide important information for the support team: The log can provide information about where a technical error may have occurred.
    If something is not working with the app, it may therefore be necessary to provide the support team with this log information:
    To do this, scroll all the way down to the ‘More actions’ section and click on the ‘Protocol' button. At the top right of the page you will find an upload button. Click on it and confirm with ‘Send’ in the pop-up window.
