Watch this video or read the text below to learn how to create a ranch.
Once Herdly is installed for the first time on a computer, you can create your ranch. A ranch has to be created before you can set it up, add user accounts, or use Herdly on other devices, including mobile devices.
Before creating a ranch, make sure the following is true:
After launching Herdly, you will see the Welcome To Herdly window. Since you will be creating a brand new ranch, select the second option labeled I need to create a Herdly account for my ranch and then click Continue.
Now you will need to fill in some information about your ranch.
It is important to enter the correct phone number and email address. Besides communicating important information about Herdly to you via email, these will be used to validate your account should you ever lose access to Herdly. We can give you a temporary code to log back in, but we will only do so if we can verify that the person asking for this code is really you. We do this by using both your email and phone number. If they are not correct we will not be able to help you get back into your account. If you change your email address or phone number in the future, you can update the information in Herdly using the Ranch Settings window.
When all the information is entered, click the Create Herdly Account button. Your ranch will be created and you can go on to setting up your ranch and adding user accounts so you can install and start using Herdly on other devices.
If you have been asked to create your ranch under the beta testing program, you will have been given a special code. In that case, click the Beta Testing... button and enter your code before clicking the Create Herdly Account button.
