Using the Kiosk on a computer or tablet

Using the Kiosk App on an iPad
For iPad users, there is a VSP Kiosk app available in the App Store on your device. Locate it by searching for “VSP Kiosk.”
You will need your Organization ID to launch the Kiosk for your organization. You can see what this is by clicking on the Subscription pane inside of VSP and you will see the Organization Web Identifier listed here.
Want volunteers to check themselves in? Open the kiosk on your organization’s device and empower volunteers to check in on their own.
This is the default interface for the Kiosk. At any time you can get to the Welcome screen to begin in this style by using the “Back” button in the upper left side of the screen.
Like to have a friendly face greeting and checking in volunteers? Treat your computer or tablet like a clipboard and check people off as they arrive.
To use the Kiosk like a clipboard, simply click the “Status” button in the upper right hand corner of the welcome screen.
Viewing Data During Check-In
At any time during the sign-in process and up to 30-minutes after the sign-in period has ended, from the main Kiosk page click the “Status” button in the upper right hand side of the screen. This will show you the names and a check-mark beside the name of all volunteers who had signed in. Anyone without a check-mark has not signed in, and will get flagged as a no-show.
Additionally, you can check the status of volunteers by going to the Schedules pane of VSP, opening the schedule, and selecting the shift. Then choose “View Sign-in Kiosk Check-ins” from the Schedule menu.
Viewing Data After Shift
Once a shift is over, the attendance records are automatically entered into VSP with no extra work on your part!
The Sign-in Kiosk is only available in the Standard Edition of VSP. To upgrade to the Standard Edition, log in to your account.
