Check-in Station

Using Admin Mode and Kiosk Mode

There are 2 modes that your check-in station can be in:

Admin Mode - In this mode, you have complete access to the settings for the check-in station. In addition, no pass code is needed for SOC and NOGO alert overrides or if someone maually enters in their information instead of scanning a Drivers License. This mode is not recommended for visitor use.

Kiosk Mode - This mode restricts access to the settings area of your check-in station. In addition, an admin pass code will be required if you have a SOC/NOGO alert or if a user has to manually enter in their information instead of scanning their Drivers License. To use this mode please create an organization user , assign them the Station-Kiosk role then use that account as your check-in station account.

Do not use the Switch to Kiosk Mode option to utilize kiosk mode. This mode is used for testing only.

Switch to Kiosk Mode

Q: How can I tell which mode I am in?

A: Look in the upper right corner of your check-in screen. You will see your school name and below your station name followed by the mode you are in.
