How do I add a new item?
Click the VaVault icon in the upper left hand corner which will bring up the user menu. Then, find the “My Vault” link and click it. This will bring up the new item screen where you can put in an item title, description, receipt and capture a photo in app. When you’re done, just click “save item” and you can move on to adding another item.
How do I send an alert to my network?
When your item is lost or stolen, that’s when all this handy information you entered comes in. You now have proof of ownership for insurance companies in your personal property inventory, pictures stored to share with VaVault users and friends on social media, and serial number information. All of this info is vital.
To send out an alert, go to My Vault and select the item that was lost or stolen. When your item comes up, scroll down to the bottom and click “create an alert.” You’ll then select your alert type, fill out a description with any information related to the loss, last known location and other info. You can even set a reward amount if you’d like to offer a reward for your item.
After you’ve filled out your alert information fully, click “Post Alert” and your alert will go out into the VaVault network!
Where are badges?
VaVault badges are earned by completing certain tasks like posting your first item, scanning your first code, adding receipts to items, adding multiple items and more. We will continue adding awards as we develop the app further.
What is the news feed?
The news feed in your app is where other VaVault user alerts will show up. So, when you get new alerts, you can be on the lookout for these items and post to your social networks to help find lost or stolen items. This feed will update every time a user in your area posts an alert.
