We’ll take you through why we’ve developed each of these unique features and how to use them to further enhance your visitor sign-in process.

 

Custom User Types

 
The bottom line:

Custom User Types enables you to create your own sign-in buttons for your device home screen.

VisiPoint Default Sign-In Screen HomeWith Custom User Types you can create new User Types to use on top of the default VisiPoint User Types – Staff, Visitor, Contractor, Student, Delivery.

The default Kiosk Layout for the VisiPoint sign-in process uses these User Types – with the addition of Student for our education customers.

With Custom User Types you can add to these buttons, or change them to be completely bespoke to your organisation. You can also create different layouts for different entrances, buildings or sites.
