Using AutoComplete

In this Article:

What is AutoComplete?

Your check-in station includes an autocomplete feature. This feature makes it easy to type in just a few characters of the first, middle or last name during a check-in or check-out to find the full name you need quickly.

As you start to type in a name into the first, middle or last name fields if that name appears on a preloaded list or RFID list those results will display as you type! Likewise, during check-out you will see names currently checked into the system under that particular badge.


Simply select the name you wish to use and continue with the check-in.

Expanded Search Feature

We have added a new search feature to the auto complete process. This feature will allow you to perform a full or partial search by first, middle or last name, or a combination of all three.

Lets look at an example!


With the current auto complete process only the first name is recognized and searched as you can see above. With the expanded search feature simply type in any combination of first middle or last name and click the green next arrow.



This will give you any search results with the data that you entered. Select the record you want and continue the check-in or out process!
