Sign visitors in or out using Sign In/Out Manager

Learn how to sign visitors in or out using the Sign In/Out Manager. You need the Sign In/Out Manager user role to use this feature. 

The options requested during sign in are set by your WhosOnLocation Administrator in Sign In/Out Questions for your location.

Visitors can be categorized as pre-registered or general. Both types of visitors can be signed in using the Sign In/Out Manager.

If you have access to multiple locations, you can change the location you are signing visitors into at the top of the page.

Sign in unregistered visitors

A general visitor is a visitor that has arrived on-site without being previously scheduled by an employee. To sign in a visitor:

  1. Go to Tools > Sign In/Out Manager.
  2. Click Visitor Sign In.

  4. Click Sign In. The Sign In button only appears on the last tab of visitor details.

If you have printing enabled, you will be prompted to print a badge pass. Click Print Visitor Pass to use a printer connected to your computer, or Kiosk Print Pass to use a printer connected to the kiosk.

The visitor will be signed in, their pass printed (if required), and their host notified (if selected).

Sign in pre-registered visitors

Visitors can be scheduled in two ways by employees; either through a calendar invite or pre-registering.

Pre-registered visitors appear on the Sign In/Out Manager dashboard, sorted in on when they are scheduled:

  • Due Now – Visitors due within an hour
  • Due Today – Visitors due on-site today
  • Due Tomorrow – Visitors due on-site tomorrow
  • This Week – All visitors pre-registered this calendar week, including visitors that were pre-registered for earlier in the week who weren’t signed in
  • Next Week – Visitors pre-registered for the next calendar week
  • This Month – All visitors pre-registered this calendar month including visitors that were pre-registered for earlier in the month who weren’t signed in
  • All – Visitors that have been pre-registered including those who were pre-registered for a past date and weren’t signed in

Visitors can be pre-registered individually or as a group. When in a group, they will show with the Meeting Name and the number of visitors. To view the details of the visitors, click on their name or group.

Pre-registered visitors can be signed in two ways; automatically from the dashboard and manually from the Visitor sign in button.

The fastest way to sign in visitors is from the dashboard, you can sign in individuals or whole groups at once. If any information required for your location was not entered during pre-registration, you will be asked to enter it during sign in.

There are four options to sign in visitors from the dashboard: manually by scanning, multiple individuals via run action, or group sign in.

You will not be able to print passes for visitors while signing them in from the dashboard. You will need to do so before or after sign in.

Manually

To sign in a single visitor:

  1. Click Sign In next to their name. If there is required information missing, you will be taken to the manual sign in to enter these details.

  3. Click Sign In.

By scanning a WolPass or pre-printed badge pass

If a pre-registered visitor has been sent a WolPass, or their badge pass has been pre-printed, you can scan this to sign them in.

To scan visitors in using Sign In/Out Manager, you will need an external QR/barcode scanner connected to the Sign In/Out Manager's computer.

  1. Scan WolPass or badge pass. This will display a popup with a summary of their pre-registered information.
  2. Click Sign In.
