  • Once you download the app, you need to use your OfficeRnD Admin credentials to log in.

  • Upon successful login, you’ll be presented with a list of all your Locations - choosing a location will link the tablet to that location, which reflects in the notifications each Visitor and Host receives.

Live Preview

A live preview of the tablet app is shown and dynamically updated as you make changes on each page. You can also mouse-hover on the live preview to:


Theme & Welcome Screen

The following options are available:

  • Company Logo - Upload a logo to be displayed in the Reception App. For best visual results, make sure to use an image with a transparent background, a 4:1 ratio, and larger than 160 x 40px.
  • Welcome text - Enter a message (up to 60 characters) which will appear on the Welcome screen.
  • Primary & Background color - Click on the color selectors to choose. The primary color is applied to buttons and tags. The background color is applied when no background image has been uploaded.
  • Background image - you can upload a background image to be used instead of a background color. The background image size should match or exceed your tablet’s screen resolution.

When you're finished, click Save Changes. Alternatively, click Discard Changes.

Allow delivery management through the Tablet app. Recipients will receive a notification when their delivery is awaiting pick up.


Here, you can test the email notifications sent to:

  • The meeting host when a visitor checks in.
  • The visitor when an invitation email is sent out.


More Options

Here, you can:

  • Go to the Configuration page where you can allow hosts to pre-register their visitors to a booking or create a stand alone visit.
  • Choose from two privacy settings when Visitors search for their host, or when a delivery recipient is selected:

    • Type at least 3 letters to see suggestions - Visitors will see list of people while typing the name.
    • Type the Full name - Visitors must type in the full name of their host the same way it’s written in the system.

Note: These settings are implemented to prevent security breach and data scraping attempts with guessing employee names.

  • Download the Tablet app for Android and iOS.
