FAQ

My company doesn’t use Dayforce. Can I still use the Dayforce mobile app for myself?

Unfortunately, no. The Dayforce HCM mobile app is only available to Dayforce HCM customers and their employees. 

What company ID should I use to log in to Dayforce?

Company IDs differ from your employee number and user name, which are specific to each individual user. Your employer will be able to provide your company ID, which is unique to your organization.

For the Dayforce mobile app, please check with your employer before downloading the app to see if they have activated the mobile option.

What information is stored on my phone when I use the Dayforce Mobile app?

Only your Company ID and username are stored. Your password is not stored on your device, with the exception of Apple devices that support Touch ID. If you use Touch ID, then your password is encrypted and stored on your device. The Dayforce mobile app does not store any other information on your device. See the privacy policy for complete details. For more information about Touch ID security on Apple devices, visit http://support.apple.com/en-us/HT5949.

Why isn’t a particular feature available on the mobile app?

There are two possible reasons for this.

First, some of the features on the mobile app support less functionality than the desktop version, or are not available on mobile.

Second, administrators can enable or disable features on the mobile app as necessary. For more information about which features have been enabled for your organization, contact your manager or system administrator.

What is a verified email address in Dayforce Mobile app?

When you add an email address to your employee record in the main application, the application automatically sends an email to that address. Once you have clicked the verification link in that email, your email address is considered verified.
Note: Verification URLs expire after 24 hours. If you need a new URL, contact your manager or system administrator to re-verify your email address.

How do I reset my Dayforce mobile app password?

If you are not logged in to the app, reset your password by tapping Forgot Password on the login screen. If you are logged into the app, tap the Reset Password button or menu item in the My Profile feature.
Note: If the app does not display Reset Password, you have not been granted access to reset your password. Contact your manager to reset your password for you.

Are there differences between the iOS and Android Dayforce mobile app versions?

While there are differences in the look and feel of some features, both platforms have the same features and functionality remains the same.

How do I change my time display from the 12-hour clock to the 24-hour clock in the Dayforce mobile app?
