Enabling Guided Access
Updated over a week ago

To prevent visitors from exiting the e-Reception Book app, you can set up Guided Access, which means a passcode has to be entered to leave the app.

Please follow the steps provided below to turn on Guided Access:

1. On the iPad, Go to Settings > Accessibility, then turn on Guided Access.

If you’re using iOS version 12.1.1 or above, you will want to mark Display Auto-Lock as default.

2. Under Guided Access, set Display Auto-Lock as default:

When this is on: Guided Access will mirror the Auto-Lock setting in Display & Brightness.

When this is off: Guided Access will turn off the screen after 20 minutes of inactivity.

3. Whilst guided access is enabled, open the e-Reception Book app and triple-click the home button to start guided access and press 'Start' in the top right corner.

4. Once you've done this, enter a passcode that your whole team will know/remember.
