Setting the Kiosk Feature

Last Updated: Feb 24, 2017 03:55PM CST
Do you own a ski shop, bike shop or boat marina and want your customers to be able to enter their information including credit card prior to coming to the counter to get fitted for or pick up their items? 

With our Kiosk feature, Essentials can help you accomplish this.

Once you have the feature added to your account, you can follow these instructions to get it set up and placed on your Kiosk device.
From the Admin mode of Rental Essentials, once the kiosk feature is turned on, choose Stations from your menu.  Then, you want to choose Kiosks from your drop down.  Next, you want to click + New Kiosk and create your Kiosk station. 

From the Create Kiosk screen, you want to enter the name of the kiosk.  Each kiosk you create will have its own specific URL which will include the name of the kiosk. 

Be sure to name the kiosk something you can keep the multiple kiosks separate.  Once the name is entered, if this is going to be your default kiosk, be sure to check the Default Kiosk option.  Otherwise, you want to click Save.
Now that you have created one of your kiosk stations, you want to create an additional kiosk stations you may have.  Once they’re all set up, you want to click the edit icon next to the first one to set up the Kiosk Configurations.  This will allow you to add a splash screen to the kiosk featuring your store’s logo.  Under the section, click the "+" to add a kiosk configuration option.  Within the configurations screen, you want to enter the Kiosk Configuration Setting Name    along with setting up the Welcome Page  , Signature Page   , and Final Page


If you’re credit card integrated and you have a credit card terminal attached to this kiosk, you want to check the credit card attached option   and complete your Credit Card Authorization Page.

Not credit card integrated but want to learn more about it?  Click Here to reach out to our credit card team to get more information on how it works and to get the process started.  
Don’t forget to add your Splash Screen of your company’s logo by uploading your image file within the Splash Screen Section.

Do you have certain customer information fields that are required for your company?  Just switch from the Basic to the Advanced Mode and now you can select which fields you want to be required in which the customer has to complete within the Customer Profile Page.

Once you’re finished setting up the Kiosk Configuration settings, click Save.
Do you have more than one kiosk that has the same splash screen and you want to have the same screens and fields as each other?  No problem.  From your Kiosks list, click the edit icon next to each kiosk and from the Kiosk Configuration Section, check the setting you want this specific Kiosk to default to.  Click Save and you’re done.
