Guided Access is a great iPad feature that uses a code to lock your iPad in our app. This ensures that your visitors can't close the app or otherwise access anything on your iPad. When setting it up be sure to set your auto lock settings to "never" to ensure the iPad doesn't go dark.

For iOS 13.3:

  • Open the settings on your iPad and select Accessibility, then scroll down to Guided Access. Toggle Guided Access on and adjust Display Auto-Lock to "never"
  • Tap Passcode Settings, then tap Set Guided Access Passcode. Enter a passcode, then reenter it. 
  • Once those are activated, select the Display & Brightness area on the left hand menu, and ensure Auto-Lock is also set to "Never".

Once these settings are complete, open The Receptionist app and triple-click the Home button to begin your Guided Access session.
