Lock a Station

This article will show you how to lock a Station to an event, folder, or location. This is helpful if you'd like a Station to only allow check-ins to one spot such as a campus, a hallway, or a specific room.

Set the Station

Set the Station

When you are creating a Station and also when you edit a station you'll see a "Lock Station" check-box. Click that and you'll be able to select which event (1), and if you'd like to go deeper, you can select folders (2) and locations (3).

What does it do?
  1. The name at the top left will become the locked location (1)
  2. People will be pre-selected if their filters fit AND if the Station allows it (2). If on a Self Station, you will not see any options to check-in unless it's the locked Station, and a "No locations available” message will be displayed. On a manned Station, you will see a “Location not allowed" message (3) but since manned Stations allow you to do everything, you can still select someone for a different location, showing a red warning message (4).
