How to set up the Locate Me Kiosk for Microsoft 365

Locate me Kiosk is 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.

This Guide strictly relates to users with a linked Active Directory. This functionality is available to all integration types, however, Email and Password users have some restrictions. If you are an Email + Password user please go to this guide here.

Firstly, log in to the admin portal using the correct method for your organisation. 

On the left-hand menu, panel click on "Configuration" and click "Locate Me" then click on the "Kiosk Configuration" tab.

Select the options you would like to be displayed when the kiosk is active.

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 list of the key contacts 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 you need to sign into your active directory using your admin credentials.

Navigate to your resources page and go to "Groups".

Create a Security group named SpaceConnectKiosk

Note: For Google users, the group can have the access level: "Restricted"

Now it's time to create a new email, you can give the user whatever name you wish. We named ours "kiosk". This email needs to have access to a mailbox.

Important: This needs to be a new user that has never signed into SpaceConnect and won't ever sign in for any other purpose.

Once that email is created you need to add this new user to the "SpaceConnectKiosk" group.

Once they have been added to this group, the user is linked to the Space Connect kiosk.

To start the Kiosk mode sign into the web portal here using the "kiosk" email address and you'll see the message displayed below.

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 have been removed from the screen.

Kiosk mode

To exit the application, you need to exit the fullscreen and close the tab. To Logout, you need to clear the cached data in the browser settings.
