What is kiosk mode?

Hello Club comes with a special kiosk mode which can be enabled on any device with a browser. This includes desktop computers, laptops, tablets, or even a mobile phone.

When kiosk mode is enabled, the device can display either a booking overview or the visitor log on the main page, without anyone being logged in.

The booking overview will update itself regularly, and members can also be allowed to make bookings from this page without having to login. This allows both members and casual players to quickly view current bookings and see who’s playing on what court. It's also ideal if you want to display bookings or the court status on a larger screen at your facility.
