How to I create an independent House Manual account for my clients, friends or family members?

It is easy to create an independent House Manual client for any client, friend, or family member and transfer control over to them. Once you have an active House Manual subscription, you can create unlimited accounts at no extra charge. Please note, however, that the recipient of the account you create for them will be required to start their own subscription for about $1 per month CAD (or the equivalent in countries outside of Canada)

Step 1 - Log out of your House Manual Account

Step 2 - Register for a new account (there is no charge for you to do this). Note the email address and password (both of these can be changed later when logged in under menu > settings).

Step 3 - Add any reference guides, notes or files for the recipient

Step 4 - Send the email and password to the new owner via Whatsapp, iMessage or other secure means.

Step 5 - The new owner can change their email and password settings by visiting Menu > Settings.
