How to Manage Your Usage With the Data Manager

Hey Community,

 

Most of you already heard about the Data Manager feature for Share Everything plans by now.

If you have not, take a look at this guide to learn how to make the most out of your wireless plan!

It’s included in your Share Everything plan, you can organize it how you want and you can change your mind at any time.

 

To begin, select a person in charge of the Data Manager. Then, set it up based on the usage of each member of the plan. You’ll have the ability to monitor usage, set up alerts, top up or pause data, and even manage how you  stream so you can do more with your monthly data allowance.

 

If you haven’t already done so, choose a Data Manager and take total control of your data.

Here’s how to get started:

 

  1. Sign in to your MyRogers app on your smartphone or tablet. You’ll need your username and password.
  2. Select your Share Everything plan.
  3. Select “Manage My Data,” which you’ll find on a red rectangle.
  4. Use the drop-down menu to select a plan member to be the Data Manager and you’re all set!

You now have a designated Data Manager, who has the ability to:

  1. Quickly see how much data each plan member has used. Just tap “Manage My Data” and a easy-to-read graph will pop up.
  2. Set up real-time alerts when a plan member has used a specified amount of data. Just slide the vertical bar up or down to set the amount. Both the plan member and the Data Manager will receive a text notification when the data amount is reached.
  3. Use the Stream Saver function to watch up to more video with your data. Just toggle Stream Saver on in the “Manage My Data” section of MyRogers.

You may be wondering what the other plan members can see when they log in to the MyRogers app. Anyone can see how much data they're using; they just don't have the same settings available to them.
