How do I check in without the 1Breadcrumb app?

Visitors who visit a site and do not have the 1Breadcrumb app have the ability to be checked in manually via a hosted check-in OR by scanning a sites QR code with their camera and completing a web form check-in. These check-in functions however do not allow individuals to answer check-in questions or view announcements set by the administrator

  • Enter the visitor’s phone number, as well as their first and last name

  • Answer any relevant questions
  • Press the blue “Check In” button

If possible, check-in via the 1Breadcrumb app or a hosted check-in is preferred.

Do I need to have the app on my phone to check in or can I just use the camera?

If your site has anonymous check-in enabled, a QR code will be available to scan for check-in on entry. You can scan this QR code with your camera and sign into the site via a webform instead of using the 1Breadcrumb app.

If the site does not have anonymous check-in enabled, you must download the 1Breadcrumb app and click the green “Check-In” button to check-in. Otherwise, a user with the host check-in function can sign you in via a manual hosted check-in on their app.

What is an accompanying person?

An accompanying person is someone a user is checking in with. To save time when checking in a large group, accompanying people can be checked in as a +1, rather than individually checking in every person separately.

How can I check others in and out manually?

To check in others, a hosted check-in can be performed. Please note that only those with the host check-in function enabled by administrators can perform this action.

To perform a hosted check-in via the 1Breadcrumb app…

Do I need to check in to a site I regularly visit?

All site visitors are required to check in to sites they visit at least once. If your manager has enabled the automatic check-in function on a site you visit, 1Breadcrumb will automatically check you into that site following your first initial check-in every time after.

How does 1Breadcrumb automatically check me in and out of site?

What if I forget to check in?

If your site manager has allowed the site to have the automatic check in function on, 1Breadcrumb will automatically sign you in if it detects a prior visitor within its zone. Otherwise, you will need to check in via the app, a hosted check in or via a webform check in

What if I forget to check out?

1Breadcrumb can detect when a checked in device has exited the geo-fenced bubble for a prolonged period of time, and will automatically check the device out of site. A visitor who has not enabled location settings, or has been manually checked in will need to check out ASAP after remembering. Otherwise, 1Breadcrumb automatically checks all users out of the site at the end of the day at 11:59pm to start fresh for the following day.
