This feature in FrontDesk is used to manually add records.
To sign in a visitor manually first you will need to create a location on FrontDesk. To do so, click on the sign in a visitor button on the top right.
Click on the purple gear icon in the top right.
Enter the name you want to give this location. Then click on “Add Location” to the right.
After you add a Location please go to Administration- Linked Accounts- Users and make sure you give yourself rights to the new Location (under Locations Rights).
Then go to Administration- Workflows and you will need to enable your Visitor Type(s) for that new location. You can do this by clicking on the Green Tree icon next to each Visitor Type.
Go back to sign in a visitor and select the visitor type and reason for visit they will be signed in as, just like on the kiosk. Enter in as much information as you can such as their first, and last name and date of birth. Then click on sign in.
