How to add a guest/walk-in on kiosk mode (video)

  • Updated

To enter Kiosk Mode, in the Boomset app, go to the top right corner and click on the small kiosk icon. You’ll be asked to set a temporary passcode in order to ensure that attendees checking in do not exit the kiosk screen.

Attendees can self-register to an event in Kiosk Mode. Please note that you will need to turn this function ON via the web platform. Remember, the kiosk screen is completely customizable to the look and feel of your event. You can configure this under the Kiosk Mode tab on the Boomset web platform. Learn how to do this here. This video shows all the options available for your guests’ check-in experience.

First, select START to begin the check-in process.

Remember, if either barcodes or confirmation tickets were emailed to attendees, attendees can scan those codes in Kiosk Mode. If any attendee has neither of those, they can be checked in by searching their first and last name.

When a walk-in attendee begins typing their name, they will see that there are no results found. By tapping ADD ME, they can select their registration type and fill out the registration form. Keep in mind that this form can be created and edited on the Boomset web platform.

Any check-in options you’ve turned on, like attendee photos capture or signature collection, will be added to your check-in process. You can also edit these options on the Boomset web platform.

Attendees will be able to see the list of all sessions available at the event. They can add a session by simply going to ALL SESSIONS and tapping on ADD next to the appropriate session.

Once the necessary information for the attendee has been collected, their badge will print after checking in and they’ll then be redirected back to the main screen. They can also tap their NFC tag here to pair their information with their RFID badge or wristband, if applicable and part of your event.
