Making an Account

Let's install the TelemetryDeck Viewer App, register for an account, and setup your application.

Step Zero: Prerequisites

These are the things you'll need:

DEVICE
iOS 14 or macOS 11
To run the TelemetryDeck Viewer app, you'll need an iPad running iPadOS 14, an iPhone or iPod touch running iOS 14, or a Mac running macOS 11. Right now, there's no web interface.
VIEWER
The App
You'll deal with all the administrative stuff regarding TelemetryDeck by using a free app, TelemetryDeck Viewer. Download it now, if you haven't already.

Step One: Register an Account

To register, you need to download the TelemetryDeck App. When you open the app for the first time, you'll be presented with a login screen. Tap the Create a New Organization button to register your organization.

Enter your personal details, including an organization name. In TelemetryDeck, users always belong to an organization. This way, if you want to collaborate with multiple account later, you can add them to your organization and share your data. You can choose any name for your organization.

Tap the Register button and if you didn't see an error message, you can now log into your newly created account with the supplied email address and password!


Step Two: Create an App

Tap the + Button at the top of the sidebar to create a new app. (If the sidebar is not visible, tap the sidebar toggle icon to show it.) This will create and open a new app.


Step Three: Get Your New App's Unique Identifier

Next up, we need to open your new app's Settings. This is done differently on iOS and macOS.

If you use macOS, click the disclosure indicator next to the app's name in the sidebar, and click App Settings.

If you use iOS, tap the menu button in the top right, and then tap App Settings.

Here you can rename or delete your app. Let's give it a proper name by typing your app's name into the App Name field. You don't need to save.

But actually right now we're interested in the app's Unique Identifer. Click the orange identifier button to copy it to your clipboard. You'll need it later.
