Understand Visitor Types #

Visitor Types are used to define the roles of people visiting your workplace.

Let’s take a school, for example.

In a school, there are various visitor types, including: Students, Teachers, Volunteers, Contractors & Suppliers, Parents, and Staff.

Hence, each visitor type will require a different sign in flow.

Create a Custom Sign-In Type and Sign-In Flow

A Sign-In Flow is a sequence of steps that visitors must go through when signing in.

Each button on your Kiosk’s screen has its own flow.
