Feature Release: Pre-Register Groups of visitors effortlessly!

From scheduled tours to new visitor orientations or executive visits, large numbers of guests arriving at one time can overwhelm your front desk and create a backlog of visitors waiting to check in on your visitor management system. Never fear — The Receptionist for iPad’s newest feature is here to help. Introducing Groups!

Designed to help your workplace schedule and pre-register large, planned batches of visitors, our new Groups feature reduces the workload for your admin team and helps them prepare an expedited check-in experience that doesn’t compromise on security. Instead of pre-registering guests one by one, you’ll be able to upload all of the visitors in the group at once and identify them uniquely as group members in your visit log. 

The ability to pre-register and schedule group check-ins means your visitors don’t have to stand around in your lobby while the rest of their group completes their check-in, and your front desk staff doesn’t have the added pressure of welcoming and checking in all of those guests individually once they’ve arrived.

Reach out to our team if you think your office could use the Groups feature, and we’ll be happy to enable it for you! You’ll then be able to see a new ‘Groups’ section in your admin dashboard where you can upload and manage your group lists. You’ll also be able to print badges for an entire group with just one click and get a head start on preparing for your guests’ arrival before they ever walk through your doors!

For more details on pre-registering Groups and scenarios where it could help your team, see our support article on the feature.

If you’d like to activate Groups on your The Receptionist account, reach out to our team and we’ll get you started. You can always live chat with us using the orange button in the bottom-right of our website or your Receptionist admin portal, send us an email at [email protected], or call us at 888-315-5230.
