Features Release Announcement
Today’s release includes new features like our API, a new reporting function for custom questionnaires, a great new way to make those areas of WhosOnLocation that you access daily easier to get to, and the formal announcement of WolPass, an awesome feature that let's you send an email, incorporating amazing tips for visiting your organization, to pre-registered visitors.
Lets take a closer look!
We are pleased to announce the release of our new Web API. It’s based on industry-standard REST principles and allows your applications to query your WhosOnLocation account visitor, and employee data, notifications, users, locations and departments through standard HTTP requests.
About the API v1
Using our JSON based REST API you can easily break out of the boundaries of your WhosOnLocation and build integrations that can leverage your visitor and staff data, notifications, users, locations and departments. Run it on your servers the way you want it.
In the near future we will be adding more endpoints to the Web API, giving developers access to yet more WhosOnLocation data.
Custom Question Reporting
Today we release reporting for Custom Questions. This new report is available to all Report Users.
Go to Reporting > Custom Questionnaire Reports
WhosOnLocation - Reporting
Custom Questionnaires can be filtered by their Status:
- Active: Custom Questionnaires which are currently available and assigned to a Kiosk
- Inactive: Custom Questionnaires which are currently available and not assigned to a Kiosk
- Archived: Custom Questionnaires which have been archived and are no longer able to be assigned to a Kiosk
We are pleased to announce 'Favorites'. This great new feature allows you to add the most common screens you access to your personal Favorites list. In the upper right corner of most screens in your WhosOnLocation account you will find the Favorites icon.
To add the screen to your Favorites list just select the icon, give your screen a short name (the app will add a default name) and save.
To access any saved Favorite just select the Favorite icon in the upper toolbar.
Let's say you update your 'Welcome Greeting' for Service Providers daily. This requires an Administrator to login and:
- Select Tools > Locations
- Select the green View button beside the respective location
- Navigate to the 'Welcome Greeting' in the directory for that location
- Select the Service Provider Greeting you have setup
In effect; 4 clicks.
The next time you are on the Service Provider Greeting screen, add it to your Favorites. The very next time you need to update the Service Provider Greeting its now only 1 click away under your Favorites.
After several weeks where some of our early adopters tested a new feature for us, we are pleased to formally announce the release of WolPass.
WolPass enables your users (employees) to send pre-registered visitors an email confirmation. This includes date, time and location of the event, directions and a Google map of the address, parking tips, Wi-Fi availability and much more all in one convenient email.
Next week we release the first phase of the much anticipated Online Induction eLearning course tool.
