Waypoints is a feature within the Sandboxx app that enables Recruits and Recruiters to connect, exchange messages, share stories, and consume content, all relevant to your pre-boot camp journey.

How is Waypoints different from other apps?

Waypoints combines all the information you need to prepare for basic training in one place. Access everything from packing lists to comprehensive guides and more. Waypoints also provides recruits with direct access to communication with their Recruiter. As a recruit, you can have peace of mind knowing you have completed all your prerequisites before you ship.

This is an 8-character code made up of letters and numbers. After inputting your code, select Join Waypoints. Now, you should see your recruiter’s information under My Recruiter.

How do I view my chats?

Click the icon in the upper right hand corner of your screen to view chats your recruiter has added you to. Here, you can also Request Access by clicking the button at the bottom of your screen.

How do I leave a chat?
