Sign In Points

Sign In Points can be used to display static QR codes so visitors can register without touching a device. You can print out as many copies of the static QR code as you need to cover all the entrances and exits on your site. This is great if you’re catering for a large number of visitors and need to collect important data without creating a central touchpoint.

Set up

To get started you need to set up your Sign In Point from the online management portal. First, go to Manage > Sites > Select site > Sign In Points and click Add new.

Clicking Add new will pop up a new window with a few different options. First, you need to add a name for your Sign In Point, this will appear just below the QR code on the automatically generated Sign In Point poster. Next, select the group that the visitor will sign into when they scan the Sign In Point. You can add multiple groups to a Sign In Point allowing the visitor to select which group they're signing in to. Finally, you need to add a Message, this can be some additional information on how to use Sign In Points or on what to do after you’ve signed in.

Displaying your Sign In Point

You can choose to display your Sign In Point in a couple of ways. You can either download and print the static QR code or make use of the PDF poster which will include additional information including the name of the Sign In Point and your Message. To do either of these, go to Manage > Sites > Select site > Sign In Points and click the QR icon to get the static QR code and click the PDF icon to Sign In Point poster.

Tip

You can edit Custom fields and Messages without needing to print out a new static QR or Sign In Point poster. If you delete the Sign In Point the QR code becomes redundant.

Using a Sign In Point

When a visitor arrives they need to scan the QR code with their smartphone or search m.signin.app in the smartphone’s browser. This will prompt the visitor to complete the sign in from a browser on their smartphone. When the visitor is ready to leave they need to scan the Sign In Point QR code again and sign out.

Screenshots

Tip

If your smartphone does not support QR code scanning from the camera you can scan the QR with Google lens or visit m.signin.app in your smartphone's web browser.
