What is access monitoring, and do I need it?
We've created a simple way for you to track members entering your facility; we call this access monitoring. You can manually check a client in from the dashboard or, you can assign your client a barcode and scan it; either way, these interactions will be logged on the 'Access' tab for you to monitor.
Find out more about access control and barcodes here.
Setting up access monitoring
To setup Access, follow these steps:
- Click on the ☰ icon on the top right of the dashboard
- Click 'Attendance'
- Click the dropdown cursor beside 'ATTENDANCE'
- Toggle on Access logging, so that it turns blue
- Scroll down to 'BARCODE SCANNER'
- Toggle on 'Allow the use of a barcode scanner' button, so that it turns blue
- You have the choice to toggle on the barcode scanner sound
- Click 'Save Changes'
Access monitoring overview
Your 'Access' tab will pull up a live stream of clients entering your facility throughout the day which will look a little like this;
From here, you can view;
- The name of the client that has entered your facility = ACCESS_HEADING_CLIENT_DETAILS
- The type of membership they are on = ACCESS_HEADING_MEMEBERSHIP
- The access status = ACCESS_HEADING_STATUS
- The time they entered = ACCESS_HEADING_ENTRY_AT
You can also click on these interactions to pull up the clients' entire interaction history.
Next steps and additional support
Once you have your access control in place, you will likely want to review past access trends. You can view a report of all 'Access' or all 'No Shows' you have had over the past year. This will help you analyze trends and target marketing campaigns.
'Access' and 'No Show' report can be found on the report tab under 'Activity'.
