Service descriptions are assigned to the service queue’s drop-down menu when a new request is created. A service description must be added to at least one queue. You may create one service description to be used in more than one queue.


Service Properties

The service properties are used to customize each service description. Each service description needs at a minimum, the service name, and an assigned queue. Other options include the following:




Description The name of the service. The name is limited to 100 characters.
Kiosk Description Provides the option to give the service a more "customer friendly" name. If used, this description will be used in the kiosk in place of the main description name. Reports will always use the main description name.
Kiosk Default If enabled, this service description will be displayed in the kiosk, as the default choice, when the queue is selected by the customer. The customer may still choose a different description if this is not the service they are checking in for. Only one kiosk default may be assigned.
Category (Optional) Used to organize descriptions into groups. Has no effect during check-in. Please see Data Tables in the LobbyCentral On-Premise Admin Manual for more information about Service Groups.
Priority  No longer used.
QMonitor Color Code An HTML color code used by the QMontior application to display pending service entries in the specified color.
Status Indicates if the service description is active. If Inactive is selected, the visit reason will not show in the drop-down menu during check-in.
Long Description If desired, a long description of the service may be entered to assist users who are checking in customers.
Email Notification Override Used to override the option, "Email check-in notification message to users" in System Options. LobbyCentral will send an email notification to the listed email addresses only when entered in this field, rather than to all users.
Assign To Assigns the visit reason to a queue.
Assigned Queues Displays the queue(s) the visit reason has been assigned to.
Show in Kiosk If True is selected, the service description will be displayed in the kiosk. If you do not want this service to be displayed, select False.
