We've detailed what you need to know about each available action below.

Check customer in

Scanning the tile checks the customer in if they have a valid pass. You don't need any specific details to set up this tile.

Check customer out

Scanning the tile checks the customer out if they were already checked in. You don't need any specific details to set up this tile.

Check in at booking

Scanning the tile checks the customer in to their booking for the defined resource.

You need to add the relevant resource's ID to the Nexudus Resource field when setting up the tile. For more information, check out Finding Resource IDs.

Check in at event

Scanning the tile checks the customer in to the relevant event. You don't need any specific details to set up this tile.

Extend current booking(s)

Scanning this tile extends the customer's current booking by the number of minutes defined in the tile.

Make HTTP request

Scanning the tile triggers a request from the Nexudus servers to a URL. This URL isn't visible to the user.

The data available as part of the POST requests contains the name of the tile as well as the details of the customer who scanned the tile. You can sign these requests using a shared secret.

Mark resource as cleaned

Scanning the tile marks the resource as cleaned in NexBoard if you enabled the toggle to show the last time the resource was cleaned.

You need to add the relevant resource's ID to the Nexudus Resource field when setting up the tile. For more information, check out Finding Resource IDs.

None

Scanning the tile doesn't trigger any type of action in Nexudus and displays an error message to the user. Use this action to quickly disable a tile that was stolen or that you no longer use but don't want to delete yet.

Place or terminate a booking

Scanning the tile a first time starts a booking for the user. Scanning the tile a second time with the same user ends the booking.

You associate each tile to a resource and define a default booking length for bookings started using the tile.

You need to add the relevant resource's ID to the Nexudus Resource ID field when setting up the tile. For more information, check out Finding Resource IDs. You then need to add a vertical line symbol | followed by the default booking length you want to apply.

Resource bookings default to 60 minutes if you don't define a booking duration.
If the resource has shifts defined, the tile books the resource using the first valid shift found based on the current time.

For example, if a resource can booked from 9a.m to 1p.m, 1p.m to 5p.m or 9a.m to 5p.m and the tile is scanned at 9:05am, Nexudus will book the resource from 9a.m to 1p.m as that is the first shift in the list based on the current time.

Place or terminate a desk booking

Scanning the tile a first time starts a desk booking for the user. Scanning the tile a second time with the same user ends the desk booking.

You need to add the relevant resource's ID to the Nexudus Resource ID field when setting up the tile. For more information, check out Finding Resource IDs. You then need to add a vertical line symbol | followed by the default booking length (in minutes) you want to implement.

Desk bookings default to 8 hours (or 480 minutes) if you don't define a booking duration.

If the resource has shifts defined, the tile books the resource using the first valid shift found based on the current time.

For example, if a resource can booked from 9a.m to 1p.m, 1p.m to 5p.m or 9a.m to 5p.m and the tile is scanned at 9:05am, Nexudus will book the resource from 9a.m to 1p.m as that is the first shift in the list based on the current time.

Redirect user to URL

Scanning the tile sends the user to the URL defined in the tile. Customers are always asked to log in before accessing the URL.

Show new booking form

Scanning the tile takes the customer to the booking form for the relevant resource.

You need to add the relevant resource's ID to the Nexudus Resource ID field when setting up the tile. For more information, check out Finding Resource IDs. You then need to add a vertical line symbol | followed by the default booking length you want to apply.

Unlock ACT365 door

Scanning the tile unlocks the selected door controlled by ACT365.

Simply put, users scanning the replaced tile would unknowingly open a different door, granting intruders access to the door.

Scanning the tile once will open an available locker in the locker bank. Scanning the tile a second time will open the same locker in the locker bank.

You need to copy your locker bank ID that can be found in your Smartalock account to set up the tile. You also need to enable the Smartalock integration before setting up your tile.
