Logging in to M-Files Mobile

  1. Contact your vault administrator or an M-Files consultant to get the login information of the vault.
  2. Open the M-Files mobile app on your device.
  3. On the login screen, enter the full server address, your username, and password.
    Example: If the name of your vault is Sales Tracker, the address can be for cloud-based deployments or for on-premises vaults. In your corporate network, the connection protocol can be HTTP instead of HTTPS.
    For cloud vaults hosted in M-Files Cloud, M-Files recognizes the server address even if you only enter the sales-tracker part. However, to make sure that the correct protocol and address are used, we recommend to always use the full server address.
  4. Tap Log in.
  5. Optional: If you have access to many vaults, select the vault to which to connect.
    If you have access to only one vault, you are automatically connected.
