You can configure your welcome, sign out message, in all supported languages, from the backoffice website under the tab "General"

By default the welcome message holds the following: "Thank you for signing in!{ Please contact your host by dialing %telephone_number% using the supplied phone.}"
As you probably noticed it is possible to use placeholders for data being captured by Vizito in your welcome message.
Using a placeholder is as simple as encapsulating it with the % sign, for instance use %telephone_number% for the internal telephone number of the host.

Below you can find a list of default placeholders:

  • First name:  %first_name%
  • Last name:  %last_name%
  • Here to see:  %recipient%
  • Company:  %company%
  • Address:  %address%
  • Zip code:  %zip_code%
  • City:  %city%
  • Phone:  %phone%
  • Email:  %email%
  • Signed in:  %signed_in%
  • Signed out:  %signed_out%

You are however not limited to these placeholders. Even custom fields can be used in the welcome message.

We've added something extra along the way to give you more flexibility towards our messages. You can notice the usage of the curly brackets "{ }".
If for some reason the placeholder is empty for a given host or visitor, the entire message within these curly brackets will be hidden. This adds an extra dynamic to the welcome message.

For instance take the following welcome message: "Thank you for signin in! { %company% has been added to our visitor list }"
If "Company" is a field that is optional and the visitor does not supply it the message shown will be: "Thank you for signin in!"
If "Company" is supplied (example: Vizito) the message will show "Thank you for signin in! Vizito has been added to our visitor list"

To use this feature, you can follow these simple steps:

  • Set "Host datasource" to "Managed within Vizito" in the account page of the backoffice website.
  • Navigate to the "Manage hosts" page (you can click on the button below the Host datasource option) and start entering your hosts (usually employees) details.
  • If you set an email address, the host will be notified by email when a visitor signs in and selects him/her as host.
  • If you set a mobile number, the host will be notified by SMS text message when a visitor signs in and selects him/her as host. Be sure to use the international format (ie +32 471 12 34 56 in Belgium)
  • If you set an internal telephone number, you can use it in the welcome message to tell the visitor which number to call to contact his host.

Also make sure you set the "Here to see?" field to either "Optional" or "Mandatory" in the App Fields page, so the visitor gets to select a host.
