Sites are locations where you use Sine. Guests check into Sites. Hosts reside at Sites and the SinePoint Pro kiosks are connected to a site (or lobby). Each business may have a number of Sites where they use Sine.

Creating a Site

To manage and create sites, click on Locations in the web dashboard.

Click Create Site.

Add a Site Name and address. Confirm you’re the official representative of the site you create, and select Create Site to complete.

Note the Site address should be the physical location where you intend to use Sine.

After your site is created, you will then be taken to the Site Settings. Here, you can customise and manage your visitor types, host selection or approval settings, branding and print site posters for mobile QR check-in.

Visitor types

Visitor types can be changed in order to better reflect those guests checking in. Each visitor may have their own view settings applied to them in Forms. Each site can have up to 15 unique visitor types.


The Hosts card lets you configure Hosts and how they interact with guests who check in.

  • Enable Hosts: Lets guests select which host they are checking in to see.

  • Host Selection Required: Lets certain visitor types check-in to sites without a Host or forces other types to choose Host to see

  • Check-in Approvals: Lets Hosts accept or reject guests who check-in to see them.

  • Check-in Approval Required: Lets certain visitor types check-in straight away and forces other types to wait for their pass to be accepted or rejected

  • Hide Host Directory: Guests are required to search for their hosts by name rather than choosing from a list of all hosts. Useful for privacy and security.

Make sure you click Save before navigating away from the page.


The Branding card allows you to configure what logos appear in different locations of the software. For instance, the logo displayed on the iPad or Mobile App. You can read more about best practices for branding your site here.

Other Options

There are other tabs that allow you to customize Sine, available by selecting them from the side-menu


The iPad tab allows you to access settings which change the behaviour of your SinePoint Pro iPad. See Configuring SinePoint Pro from Site Settings for more information.


The Passes tab lets you configure settings regarding how your visitors are able to check into your Site. See Pass Settings for more information.

Check-in and check-out forms

The Check-in and Check-out forms tabs are for if you wish to ask visitors or guests questions before they are able to check-in. See Introduction to Forms for more details.


The Notifications tab lets you configure things like emails for visitors on check-in and check-out, SMS notifications for Hosts when visitors check-in to see them and more. See Notifications Settings for more information.


The Printing tab allows you to setup and customize certain aspects of the badge printing process. This includes things like automatic printing when a visitor checks in and printing by visitor type.
