To access kiosk general settings go to Tools > Administration > Kiosk- General Settings.
Settings & Options
Allows User control of the web kiosk settings.
|Idle Time-Out||Allows the user to select how long the kiosk must remain idle before resetting to the Welcome screen. For Example, if a customer starts the check-in process, but leaves the kiosk before completing check-in, the kiosk will return to the Welcome screen after the selected amount of time.|
|Confirmation Page Delay||The user can select how long the Check-In Confirmation page will display before refreshing to the Welcome Screen. The default setting is 8 seconds.|

|Generate and Present Call-Out Number||LobbyCentral can generate a number and assign it to a customer request. This number is displayed to both the customer and the user. When the user changes the customer's status from pending, to in-service, the call-out number is displayed on QMonitor as well as the user's screen, in place of the customer's name. A DYMO printer may be connected to the kiosk to print the call-out number for the customer.
