What software do I need to use Sprout?

Web browser

A modern web browser is required to use Sprout. Current versions of any of the following browsers are advised:

  • Google Chrome (download here)
  • Firefox
  • Safari
  • Microsoft Edge



Each member using Sprout must have a unique email address. For security reasons, shared email addresses must not be used to register for or access Sprout.


Word processing

A word processing program is required to view downloaded referral requests, intake forms and visit reports, e.g. Microsoft Word.


Spreadsheet program

A spreadsheet program is required to view downloaded visit report data, e.g. Microsoft Excel.


Antivirus software: Please note that if you are running antivirus software (e.g. McAfee) on your computer then you may need to explicitly grant permission for Sprout to access your web browser to download documents and reports.
