    Once you update Google Chrome to v70, you will need to completly close and restart Google Chrome.  Have you tried that?

    Emma, can you try restarting your computer and then re-opening Chrome?

    Apparently, my Google Chrome wasn't up to date. I clicked on "Help" and then "About Google Chrome" and it manually checked for an update. It is all working now.

    Thanks!

    What if I don’t run Google Chrome? I use Firefox.

    If you have a compatible device, it's called "Add to Home Screen" on Firefox.

    Thank you for developing this.  Next, I hope, there will be an Application for tablets and iPads.  Much easier to carry from client to desk and around for assessments as I do every day.  Thank you.

    Same here, I updated to the latest Chrome, restarted my Mac and can't see the install Soapvault option either. Does the app work on Safari?

    Kessy, you may need to clear your cache on Chrome.  Sorry PWA support in Safari on macOS is not yet available.
