Kiosk Mode is a user type designed for use in reception areas or accommodation type scenarios whereby a tablet or shared computer is available for staff to access.
The Kiosk Mode allows staff to see the shift details - which clients and other staff are scheduled.
There are differences between a staff's user account and the site's kiosk user type such as:
In Kiosk Mode, staff can't apply for leave as they can do in their personal accounts as this is a general use across the site.
In their personal accounts, staff can't see other staff members' shifts or the clients also at the site.
Kiosk Mode has read-only access to the information so can't make changes other user types can, however, in Kiosk Mode it is possible to add notes.
