Accorto provides a mobile application available at http://m.accorto.com. It allows you to
enter Time records
enter Expense records
view and update your recent Time/Expense records
The application requires the installation of 'Accorto Cloud Plus' in your salesforce organization. For the mobile user interfaces, there is nothing you need to install.
Accorto Mobile works with the recent HTML5 capable phones like the recent generations of iPhone, Android, etc. With some restrictions, you can also use the application with older devices.
Go to https://m.accorto.com.
To login, click on the Salesforce logo.
This will forward you to the Salesforce Login and confirmation screen.
Once you logged into your Salesforce account and allowed access, you will be returned to the application to process the login.
Handling Login problems:
If there are connection problems, you can reset any settings in the application by clicking on the Reset button this deletes all cookies and will request a new authorization from Salesforce. If you want to switch between accounts, you may have to wait for the old Salesforce session to expire as Salesforce optimizes the login process and may nor re-authorize even if requested.
If you get the error message: "Could not log in. You need to have 'Accorto Cloud Plus' installed!" please make sure that you used the credentials for a Salesforce organization with Accorto Cloud Plus installed.
If you get the error message "authentication failure - Failed: API security token required", please check the Security section below.

You can also enter the username and password directly on the login screen. For this, use the url https://m.accorto.com/mobile/?t=1
To enable this, you need to add our server to the trusted IPs - otherwise you will get the error "authentication failure - Failed: API security token required". The steps in Salesforce are:
