What You Need to Set Up NexEvents

Tablet Requirements

You need at least one tablet meeting the requirements detailed below to use NexEvents. You can choose to set up several tablets with NexEvents if you want to allow check-in/out in multiple areas of your space.

Screen size 

Tablet screens must be over 7 inches. We recommend displays between 9 and 12 inches for optimal display and ease of use. 


Tablets must connect to Wi-Fi to download and use the app. 


Tablets must support Bluetooth 4.0 (also known as BLE) or above.

Access to the Apple Store or Google Play 

Tablets must have access to the Apple Store (iPad) or Google Play (Android tablets) to download the app.

Minimum OS Version 

Tablets must use a recent version of iOS or Android. You can easily find the minimum OS required for your tablets from the app's page on the App Store or Google Play. 


To find the minimum iPadOS required to use the app, find the app on the App Store and scroll down to the Information section. 


Android tablets

To find the minimum Android version required to use the app, find the app on Google Play and click on the arrow icon next to About this app


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.
