How to Use the Employee Check-in Button

Do you need to create Employee Barcodes for your employees to check in and out of your facility? Try our Employee Check-in feature.

Note

Important Notes:

  • You will need to log into the web portal account as a Global or location admin.
  • Employees need to have a barcode in order for this feature to work.
    The Employee barcodes will need to be created by our Greetly team. Please email your request with the following information requested in step 3 to: success@greetly.com
    It can take between 24- 96 business hours to complete your request (depending on the size of your employee's list).
  • When the employee check-in feature is enabled, it turns the “camera preview” on the Welcome page into a barcode scanner, so employees can simply scan their ID (barcode) and check in & check-out.
  • The Employee Check-in (Beta) button will be hidden on the app device. Once the employee scans their barcode they will be checked in.
  • If you scan the barcode and the employee is already checked in, the system will automatically check them out.

    Important tips for when your employees check-in on the device:

    • The Employee Check-in (Beta) button will be hidden on the app device. Once the employee scans their barcode they will be checked in.
    • Employees can use their barcodes from their phones to check in by holding their barcodes up to the front camera on the device.
    • The barcode should have a white background, and make sure the phone portrait orientation is OFF. This will allow the barcode to display on the phone in a large view.
    • Employees can use their barcodes from their phones to check out by holding their barcodes up to the front camera on the device.
    • You will be able to view the activity in the visitor's log.
