The Home Screen is the first thing your visitors will see when they check in on your Receptionist kiosk, so you want to make sure that your home screen layout makes a great impression! Luckily, you can easily edit how that screen looks so that it matches your team's branding and style. Everything from the logo to the colors to the background are within your control!

To get started, navigate to the Home Screen page of the web portal. While making edits, we encourage you to keep your iPad nearby so you can see how it looks in person.

  • Text: configure the message displayed on your Home Screen and the font type, size, and color. Note: the font size does not dynamically update the preview on the web.

  • Logo: upload your logo to be used on the home screen and at the top of the following screens throughout check-in. We recommend an image with a transparent background, a 4x3 aspect ratio (e.g., 2000 pixels wide and 1500 pixels tall), and a file size no bigger than 5 MB.

  • Start Button: configure the text and color that is used for the start button. Feel free to make this message relevant to your visitors!

  • Background: customize what displays behind your text or logo on the iPad using a solid color, an array of pre-uploaded images, or even upload your own custom image! Custom images should be at least 2,048 pixels in one dimension (square images work the best both for portrait and landscape orientation).

  • Layout & Contactless: choose from 7 different layouts to highlight the items that are most important to you and lock the orientation if you have a specific viewing preference. We recommend playing around with these layouts once you've configured some of the other aspects of your home screen to see which one works best for your brand. You can also enable or disable Contactless Check-In from here.
