How to add two aTouchAway accounts as contacts to each other

Managers can connect accounts as contacts so they can communicate with each other using the aTouchAway app.

The following instructions apply to managers who have access to two or more user accounts under the Your Managed Users section in aTouchAway.  The accounts can be aTouchAway/Simplified users or Mobile/Bring Your Own Device users.
