Instant QR is a contactless check-in method that is perfect for organisations that handle unexpected visitors or walk-ins that are not practical to organise ahead of time with a Fast Track QR Code.

With Instant QR, visitors generate their own, secure QR code that can then be used both to check in and out through the contactless QR reader on your Sine check-in kiosk.

For sites where Instant QR is required in addition to other check-in methods, it may be best to set up a second, 'Instant QR' site that can handle these check-ins and have features such as host selection and check-in forms disabled.

To enable a seamless check-in with Instant QR, your site must have the following settings disabled either across the site, or for the Instant QR visitor type (where possible):

  • Site Settings > General > Host Selection Required > Disabled for default visitor type

  • Site Settings > General > Check-in Approval Required > Disabled for default visitor type

  • Site Settings > iPad > Light Theme is Not Supported

  • Site Settings > iPad > Returning is Not Supported

  • Site Settings > iPad > Multi-language not supported on Instant QR messages currently

  • Site Settings > iPad > ID Scanning is skipped completely

  • Site Settings > Passes > Email required prevents check-in

  • Site Settings > Passes > Invitation required prevents check-in

  • Site Settings > Forms > Check-in forms prevents check-in

  • Site Settings > Forms > Check-out forms prevents check-out

  • Integrations that require forms or user interaction must be disabled
