Basic users can join groups at the time of registration via the mobile app as well as by managing your groups via your profile settings on your app. At this time, you can not add new groups to your profile through the web interface. 

To manage your group affiliations after completing the sign up process on the mobile app, walk through the following steps:

1. Navigate to your profile

Locate the profile icon in the bottom right corner of Water Reporter and tap it. This will bring you to your profile page where you can view your reports, actions (if applicable), and groups. Tap on the profile settings gear in the top right corner.

2. Tap manage groups

In the profile settings view, you will see a variety of elements for managing your profile, managing notifications, and managing groups. Tap on manage groups.

3. Search and Join

If you see the group you want to join, click the join button. If you don’t see the group you can search for it. When you tap “join group” a notification will be sent to the group administrators letting you know you have joined. You can leave at anytime and if you don’t see a group you in Water Reporter, send us a note.

4. Success

Nice! You are now affiliated with a new group and it will appear in your profile. You can also share reports with this organization by flipping the group name toggle when sharing a report.


Most users join one or two groups that they already have a direct affiliation with. Some basic users choose to join multiple groups. If you go this route, we recommend joining a maximum of ten groups.
