How to Set-up the Locate Me Kiosk - Email & Password Account
This is a step-by-step guide to configuring the Locate Me Kiosk. it can be an excellent tool to find key contacts, find a desk, or find a colleague in the workspace all from a kiosk or any interactive displays in the office.
Firstly, log in to the admin portal here and sign in using the correct sign-in method for your organisation.
On the left-hand navigation menu click on "Configuration" and then "Locate Me".
Once the locate me page has loaded click on "Kiosk Configuration" to open up the settings.
Timing - The Kiosk Mode only displays in Real-Time so there is no toggle to change this. The Real-Time feature automatically updates every minute so there is never a discrepancy between the kiosk and the booking system.
Search - The search toggle restricts the ability to find a specific space or user. If this is off you can only see the key contacts list or select booked desks on the map to see the details.
Spaces - Toggle the Spaces to ON depending on which resources you use and wish to display, if a space is switched off but available it will not show up within locate me.
Once complete click "Save".
Now it's time to create a new user.
Within your Active Directory go to your "Active Users" page and create a new user, this user needs to be licensed and have access to a mailbox. You can give the user whatever name you wish, We named ours 'Kiosk User'. You will also need to ensure you have one user for each signed in Kiosk.
Important: This needs to be new user that has never signed into Space Connect and won't ever sign in for any other purpose.
Go back to your admin portal here.
Go to Users on the left-hand navigation panel.
Click "Add User" and create a new user with the email address you just created and give it the role "Kiosk"
Make sure you have set your password from the link that comes into your mail box before you move onto the next step.
Sign into the web portal here using your new email and password you just set for the Kiosk account. It will automatically sign into Kiosk mode. You will be given the option to make the page full screen, we recommend this as it makes the solution look and perform like an app.
You will notice that the only feature available is the locate me functionality, the option to book a desk from the locate me screen has been disabled, and the signed-in user details has been removed from the screen.
To exit the application, you need to exit the full screen and close the tab. To Logout, you need to clear the cached data in the browser settings.
