The Capsule Mobile app includes many features needed while on the go - view and add data, initiate calls and complete Tasks. Use the app offline and your changes will sync back to Capsule when you’re online.
The Capsule mobile app can be used by any User and is available for both iPhone and Android users with:
- iOS 10+
- Android 6+
When you first open the app, you’ll be prompted to connect your Capsule account. You’ll be asked to enter in your site name before you enter in your Username and Password.
You can manage your existing Contacts, add new ones, check notes, Opportunities, Cases, and Tasks that are associated with that Contact. You’ll be able to access your Contacts whether your device is online or offline.
- Start by tapping the Contacts icon on the menu bar.
- Choose the Add new icon in the upper right- hand side of the screen.
- Select which type of Contact to add; Add Person or Organization
- Enter in your Contact’s details
- Tap Save in the upper right-hand side of the screen.
You can import Contacts from your phone into Capsule Mobile. To import a new Contact:
- Navigate over to Contacts
- Tap the Add new and select Import Contact.
- There are some limitations to what can be imported, as there are certain details that need to be in place. For example, a Person will need either a first and/or last name and an Organization will need an Organization name.
The import process works hand-in-hand if you have an app to scan business cards on your device. With the card scanning app, you can save the Contact to your device and then import it into your account using the Capsule Mobile app.
Here are some examples of popular business card scanning apps:
- iOS: CamCard or FullContact Business Card Reader
- Android CamCard FreeLogging Activity
If you find that you need to update your Contacts’ information, you can edit this on an individual basis.
- Tap the Contact icon, then tap the three dots in the upper right-hand side of the screen
- Choose Edit Person/Organization
- Enter in your new information and Save your changes.
If you need to search for a list of Contacts with a specific Tag, you’ll be able to locate them by searching through any previously applied tags:
- From the or Contacts screen, tap the Filter icon in the upper right-hand side

If you’d like to keep track of the details you have in a conversation, Capsule will help you to log those details.
When making a call from the Capsule App, you’ll automatically be redirected to the Contact that is associated with that phone number where you can leave notes as soon as the call has ended.
Android users will need to exit the phone call screen (during the call) or navigate to the Capsule app once the call has been completed. The Contact associated with that phone number will automatically show up when the app is opened.
Whether a Contact is stored in your phone’s address book or only stored in Capsule’s Contacts section, the Caller ID feature will display your Contact’s name so you’ll never need to guess who is on the other end of the incoming call. This feature is currently available for iOS users only.

Like the Capsule web app, the mobile app allows you to attach files to records. When using the app, you’ll be able to choose those files directly from your device and store them against the relevant record.
