With Sling's Business subscription, the Kiosk feature lets you use any computer, tablet or smartphone as a time clock terminal. This way, you can be sure employees are clocking in from their work location.
To set up a Kiosk, follow these steps with the device you want to use:
Go to https://kiosk.getsling.com/setup using a web browser. Note that Internet Explorer does not support the Kiosk, but Edge will. Chrome, Firefox, and Safari are all compatible.
There, we will ask for your admin or manager credentials. You are not signing into your main Sling account here, just launching the Kiosk. Employees won't be able to access your admin account.
Next, define the locations that should have access to this kiosk. Only employees assigned to the same location(s) will be able to clock in and out from this kiosk.
For example, an employee with a shift in Brooklyn can't clock-in with a Kiosk set for shifts in Manhattan.
You can select multiple locations for the same kiosk session, however.
Once the locations are set, you will click Launch and the following screen will appear.
Once you see this blue screen with the PIN pad, you and your employees can use your PINs to clock in and out.
Click here to learn where your employees can find their PIN.
Please note that Kiosk sessions will remain logged in, so you should be able to open kiosk.getsling.com and see your last session.
If you bookmark the login page for the kiosk (kiosk.getsling.com/setup), then it will always ask you to login.
