How Does Kiosk Mode Work?

Published on 01/10/19 by karyn.menzies@safetyspot.com

Kiosk mode is used for visitor and volunteer check-in, and other uses such as activity reports, mailing lists, and liability waiver automation. Kiosk mode works in two ways. We will review how to enable and use kiosk mode.

Method 1: Convert the computer terminal via web client browser to a kiosk screen for repetitive tasks such as sign-in at the front desk of a site.

Step 1

Enable Kiosk mode by going to Kiosk from the drop-down menu in the top, left corner.

Step 2

Select the appropriate kiosk type.
NoteThere are to default kiosk types; however, we can enable others for specific workflow types to fit your needs, such as check-in for maker space, for example.

Step 3

Now, when you click on the kiosk, it converts the computer to kiosk mode and requires a passcode to exit. Your Safety Spot account credentials de-activates the kiosk. Note You must first enable kiosks at the location of interest.
Users use these kiosks to build activity reports and mailing lists for those interested in their maker spaces (i.e. tours, guests, visiting parents/kids, etc.)
Other sites also use it for liability waiver automation prior to site entry at the front desk.

Method 2: Mobile App

When using the native app on Android or iPhone/tablet, it converts the tablet or smartphone to a kiosk screen for repetitive tasks such as visitor check-in.
