Sign In/Out Manager more actions menu

Learn about the features in the more action menu for Sign In/Out Managers. You must have the Sign In/Out Manager user role to use these features.

How it works

Sign In/Out Managers have access to a range of features, including signing people in, entering their information, editing their information, signing people out, and seeing a report of everyone who has been in your location. These all revolve around letting people in and out of the location.

There are also some additional actions that Sign In/Out Managers have access to which are not specifically for this core role, including pre-registering visitors, seeing an on-site summary, logging deliveries, and triggering a panic alarm.

You can access these features by clicking the More Action button in the top right corner of the Sign In/Out Manager screen.

If you have the multi-language add-on enabled, the interfaces for these features will display in the selected language.

On-site summary

The on-site summary shows a quick overview of how many of each person type is currently signed into the location using MRI OnLocation and an overall number. It also shows how many visitors are still expected today (including those that have passed their expected time and not signed in).


Click View next to any of the person types to see a detailed look of those people signed in or expected and the information entered for them.

You can also generate an evacuation report of all or specific people as a PDF:

  1. Click Evacuation Reports.
  2. Select the person types you want to report on.
  3. Click View.

Along with anyone who is currently on-site, you can also include the employees who are currently off-site in the report.

Panic alarm

If you ever feel that your safety or security is, or could be, compromised you can trigger a Panic Alarm from the More Actions menu. This will send out a request for assistance to the Panic Alarm Responders who are set up in the location settings.

Once your Panic Alarm event is over you, or any other Sign In/Out Manager, can de-activate the event from OnLocation and those responders will be informed again.

When a delivery arrives at your location, you want to be able to notify the recipient as efficiently as possible, especially if it requires a signature. Using Deliveries, you can enter the recipient into OnLocation, as well as the package type, and if it requires a signature, and they will be automatically notified that a delivery has arrived with that information.

This also logs the delivery in OnLocation so you can see when a delivery arrived and the details of it. You can see the Deliveries Report if you have the Reports Manager user role.

Pre-register visitors

Sign In/Out Managers can pre-register visitors for any employee in OnLocation for their location. This is particularly useful when visitors call the reception desk to arrange an appointment.

From the Pre-Register Visitor link in Sign In/Out Manager, they can set up visits for any employee and add visitors from their own saved visitor list.

Connect to OnScan

OnScan is an iOS app enabling you to scan, capture, and store a visitor’s photo ID. The scan information is sent to OnLocation to either sign in a new visitor or update an existing/pre-registered visitor’s profile.

Use the Connect to OnScan option to link the app to your OnLocation profile so that when you scan a visitor’s ID, it sends the ID details to your computer. 

This option is only available when you've enabled the OnScan integration and activated the Scan and Capture option in Sign In/Out Questions.
