Step 5: Configure the induction kiosk contractor help option

Learn how to set up the contractor help option on an induction kiosk. You must have the Induction Manager user role assigned to see this function.

Contractor help is used to send a message to chosen users when a contractor is having issues using your kiosk. This allows contractors to use the kiosk unattended but still be able to reach out if they require assistance.
