Kiosk mode

Using kiosk mode allows parents to self sign in and out their children without using their phone. All you need is a designated device with the mobile app downloaded and set to kiosk mode. This article walks through how to set up the 4-digit PIN code kiosk mode; for QR code mode, refer to this article.

How to set up 4-digit PIN self sign-in/out

On the device you would like to turn into a sign-in/out kiosk—this can be a phone or a tablet—login to the mobile app. On the Home screen, click on "Kiosk" at the top.

Toggle to the "Enter PIN" option.

Lock the kiosk

You can lock the device in kiosk mode so parents cannot access the rest of the mobile app from that device. To lock the kiosk, you will need your school's PIN code which is found on the Administrator Dashboard under the General tab of Settings. Scroll down to the Attendance section and click on the eye icon to the right of "School PIN Code" to reveal the 4-digit code.

Once you have the PIN code for your center, you will want to tap on "Lock" in the top-right of the PIN code screen on the mobile app.

You will be prompted to enter the PIN code for the center.

Parents can now enter their family's unique PIN code to sign in/out their student(s).

When you're ready to exit kiosk mode, tap "<" on the upper left of the screen.

What if a parent or guardian has forgotten their family PIN code?

You can view a family's PIN code by student from the Administrator Dashboard. Navigate to the student's profile on the Students tab then click on the Settings tab on their profile. To the right of "Signing PIN," click on the eye icon to reveal the 4-digit PIN code. Admins can change the PIN by clicking on the "Edit" button.

Note: While kiosk mode is set up through the mobile app, there are a few functions that are only accessible through the Administrator Dashboard.
