Pixel 8 phones are known to not be working with the Float apps at the moment. Our team is actively working on having them added to the list of supported devices. Stay tuned!

The mobile app makes it easy to view and schedule tasks, log your time, and set a status to let your team know what you're up to.

Changes sync in real-time across the mobile app and web version of Float, so you'll only be a few clicks away from seeing the latest version of your Schedule.

Assign a task, schedule time off, and set a status

Tap anywhere on the Schedule or click the Add button (+) in the bottom right corner to bring up the menu.

You can assign a task, schedule time off, or set a status from the Schedule tab. Enter any relevant details and then click Create in the top right corner to add it to your Schedule.
