Kiosk Overview

Our Kiosk module is designed to be displayed on an iPad at your facilities front desk. The Kiosk has been designed for use on mobile devices, so we recommend utilizing iPads, or cheap Android tablets for this purpose. Read more about the kiosk here.

The Kiosk can do the following:

  • new members can fill out waivers

  • members can checkin using a pinpad

  • automatic checkin mode using a barcode scanner

In order to ensure access to your Kiosk only happens from your facility, the Kiosk uses its own Staff Member with a role of Kiosk. This special staff role restricts access to the rest of your system, and only allows Kiosk access. This is a security measure, because if someone steals your Kiosk, they could access the rest of your system. Not good!

Staff Kiosk Setup

First let's setup a special "kiosk" role that only has access to the kiosk for security purposes.

  1. Under the Staffs menu item, click the "Roles" tab.

  2. Create a role with kiosk

With the kiosk role created, let's create a kiosk staff member and apply the kiosk role.

  1. Under the Staffs tab, click the "New Staff" button.

  2. Enter any valid email, first, and last name. It can be anything, like Kiosk User.

  3. Enter a valid password. Don't forget it!

  4. Under Staff Roles, choose "kiosk"

  5. Create the kiosk staff user

Now all that's left is to log into your app from a tablet.

  1. Head to http://yoursite.sport-keeper.com/staffs/sign_in

  2. Log in using the kiosk user email and password

  3. Once logged in, click the "Open Kiosk" button
