Group kiosks for classes and meetings.
This is the kind of kiosk you should use if you want to set up a secure check-in system for something like a children's Sunday school class.
A group kiosk will print matching child and parent badges so the kids can be picked up only by their authorized guardians at the end of class. It can also be used for adult classes to print simple name tags. Group kiosks take attendance automatically and monitor a class or event's size to notify you when it reaches capacity.
The group kiosk system is an extension of the groups feature in Realm. You will only be able to check in individuals who are in groups and those groups must have events already scheduled on the day of check-in. Guests who are not in a group will have to be added as unscheduled attendees.
A kiosk profile lets the check-in system know which groups and events can be checked in using a particular kiosk.
Permissions. In order to create kiosk profiles, you must have the Manage Kiosks permission set to Allow in your responsibilities. Someone who only has the Launch Check-In Kiosks permission will be able to open the kiosk feature to help members log in, but will not be able to create or modify kiosk permissions.
Hidden Groups. Check-in cannot be used for hidden groups. These groups will not be visible when setting up or editing kiosks, and they will not be available when checking people into events.
How early can people check in?
For volunteer-manned kiosks, you can check people into an event up to four hours early and four hours after it ends. For self-check-in kiosks, you can check people in up to four hours early, but not after the event's end time.
