Altora has the ability to document user check-in records. Users will be able to check in using a tablet situated at one of the kiosk points to keep an accurate record of how many people have been on-site* and to ensure that all their induction requirements have been met and are up to date. If a user has outstanding or expired tasks, they will be notified of this so that they can complete them there and ensure all their compliances have been met.
*Please note that the check-in function is not an accurate timesheet recorder.

Visitor Types & Requirements
Each visitor that checks into the Check-In system can be assigned to a specific visitor type, and each type can have its own requirements assigned to them. To create your visitor type, this is found under the Visitor Types & Requirements tab, then click on the + Visitor Type button, enter the name of the site visitor type, assign the corresponding program for this visitor type, review the details and confirm. You may add multiple visitor types and assign multiple programs to one type.
All items within a program will need to be set to "required" in order to assign them to a visitor type; if you have any tasks within the program listed as "optional", you will not be able to assign them to the visitor type.
You can assign administrators to each individual site. To create invite admins to this site, this is found under the Administrators tab, then click on the + Administrators button, enter the details of the admin and click save. You may add multiple administrators to the one site.

all requirements for that site. Clicking yes, will disallow the user the ability to check
in until they have passed all the requirements for their visitor type.
Terms & Conditions:
By turning this on you a terms and conditions page will appear when the user attempts to
check in which they will have to agree to before being able to proceed.
Set the maximum hours for the system to auto check out a user if they have not done so
manually, by setting this number as 0 it means that the user will never have a check out
time against their record unless they do check out manually.
The Notifications tab allows you to set whether the admins linked to the specific site will receive notification emails for each time a user checks in to the system and/or when a user fails to pass the site requirements.
