This app doesn't work on Amazon Fire tablets or any tablet that doesn't have access to either the App Store or Google Play. 

An Admin Account Dedicated to NexEvents

We recommend a dedicated admin account for the app because your displays will be disconnected every time you reset the password of the admin account used to set up the app.

Having a dedicated admin account helps keep the app up and running all day and helps you avoid repeating the setup process.

You can create a full unrestricted admin or a restricted user with a role that includes the following permissions:

  • AccessToken - All
  • Business - List, Read
  • Coworker - List, Read
  • RefreshToken - All
  • User - List, Read, Create

For more information, check out User Roles Examples.

Setting Up NexEvents

  1. Download the app on an iOS or Android tablet.

  2. Open the app on your tablet.

  3. Log in using the dedicated admin credentials you created for the app.

  4. Select your location.

All set! The first time you launch the app, you'll be asked to authorize access to your device's camera. If you want attendees to be able to use QR codes to check in, you need to let the app access the camera.
