Generating Emergency Lists on your Kiosk

Table of Contents

In the event of an emergency, you can print an emergency list directly from your kiosk. This is a list of everyone currently signed into your facilities so that you can perform a roll call and ensure that everyone is located safely.

The kiosk prints the emergency list via the ID badge printer, therefore you must have a compatible badge printer connected to use this function.

To do this you’ll need to navigate to the Administration screen on your kiosk.

You can do this by double-clicking or tapping on the blue bar at the top of the screen a few times and entering your kiosk password.

On this page, you will see a red “Print Emergency List” button.

Once you click this button, you’ll see a pop-up on the screen which shows the printing process has started. The kiosk will process this as quickly as possible and your list will be printed from the connected badge printer.

The printed list will feature the name of each person currently signed into the area to which this kiosk is assigned. You’ll also see the contact number for each user (if provided) as well as the date and time they signed in.

When an emergency session is activated, your kiosks designated to the affected areas will display the emergency screen below. This alerts users that there is an emergency situation and prevents anyone from signing in or out.
