2. Contact-Less Visitor Sign-In
Your staff can already sign-in from their own computers or phones (using our Android
apps), but now so can your visitors, simply by scanning a QR code on their own phone!
This option is also in the Company Settings
page, near the bottom "Show QR code
". The QR code is shown at the bottom of the Visitors page on your Kiosk Accounts
, so if you haven't already created a Kiosk Account make one now
You can also download the QR code to print out, or email a link to your visitors in advance, see the "Show an email/printable version
The visitor will have to install a barcode scanning app on their phone, but on most iPhones the camera app can scan barcodes without having to install anything.
When the visitor scans the QR code they will be taken to a webpage to complete the same Visitors Sign In form. As a bonus, once they've scanned the barcode once they can keep using the same page to sign In/Out on future visits without having to retype all their details.
3. Staff Location Log
By default our system does not keep a log of staff movements - we only store their current location and return time so their colleagues know where they are. However, we have provided a Logging feature for any company who specifically asks for it.
To help with contact tracing of any COVID-19 cases in your workplace, we've now decided to make this feature available to everyone, but still off by default.
To enable the Staff Log, head to the Company Settings
Due to the extra long-term data storage, we charge an additional 50% on top of our normal per-user rates for this feature.
That's all for now, but we do have more features in progress so I'm sure you'll be hearing from us soon.
UPDATED 25th May 2020: Changed visitor log retention from 90 days to 60 days.
