Activation Mode

Supported In:

Kiosk Pro Plus and Enterprise

Ensure your visitors see or complete certain preliminary content before being allowed to browse more freely on the kiosk. 

This setting can be useful for requiring visitors to agree to an acceptable use policy or asking them to complete a short survey prior using the kiosk. During Activation Mode, Kiosk Pro hides the status, address, and navigation bars so that the only way a visitor can move forward is through links defined in your content.

Default: Off

If showing the Navigation Bar, the Home icon will return the visitor to the first page shown after leaving Activation Mode. The back button history will end at this page as well. This prevents the visitor from accidentally returning to Activation Mode, where they would need to navigate through the preliminary content again.

The Idle Time Limit runs in both Activation Mode and standard mode. In either case, the Idle Time Limit will return the kiosk to the Homepage set in Kiosk Pro settings, resetting Activation Mode. In this case, we recommend using the Show Idle Time Reset Alert feature to let visitors know when the device is about to reset.

Unlike the Idle Time Limit, the Browsing Time Limit isn't started until the app leaves Activation Mode.

How to use Activation Mode

In addition to turning On this setting, you must define a JavaScript variable on each page that will be shown in Activation Mode:

var kp_activation_mode = true;

When Kiosk Pro loads a page where this variable is not defined or does not equal "true", the app will leave Activation Mode and begin running in the standard mode. Any display bars that are enabled in Kiosk Pro settings will then be shown. See below for sample code.
