Create Custom Fields, Custom Screens and Smart Rules

As part of your visitor flow, you might need to ask certain visitors for additional information, tell them about health and safety rules, and require them to sign agreements based on their reason for visiting your company. Below we are taking you through setting up a smart custom screen.

1. Custom fields

Custom fields are personalized questions you can set up to request additional information from your visitors.

To manage your custom fields, click on the Settings icon and click Custom fields:


Custom fields do not have to be displayed to guests, they can be strictly for internal use by activating the Only show this field to receptionists and admins toggle:

2. Custom Screens

A custom screen is a custom field that is added to the check in process for guests to answer during their registration.
To set up a custom screen, first create the custom field in your Logbook. Once all questions have been added, go to:

Settings > Visits Settings > Configure Kiosk > Custom Screens > Manage custom screens.
Click on the question you want to add to your check in and arrange them on the page.

Make sure they are connected with a step before and/or after. Your flow will look something like this when you're done:

3. Smart Rules (Custom Flow)

A custom flow or Smart Rules is when you can create different paths based on the answers your guests enter.  
The Smart Rules start the same, create your questions in the logbook and arrange them in the custom screens section. The Smart Rules change when you start to add the steps for the path in the menu on the side of the screen:

You can determine what your visitor will see based on how they answer.  
Once you've gotten all of your rules in place, your custom flow can look similar to this:

You can add images or messages to your check-in along with your questions.
