SignOnSite provides multiple pathways for you to sign into the site to give you the greatest flexibility and control.
Sign-in options are determined by both how the head contractor has the site set up, and your personal app settings.
Site Set Up Options (managed by the Head Contractor)
When a site is set up in SignOnSite, the Head Contractor can manage how workers sign on and off the site. These options include:
- App sign-in options: Automatic / Manual / Prompted
- Kiosk sign-in option
- Site Manager or Subcontractor Supervisor reporting options
App sign-in options: Automatic / Manual / Prompted
Each site can be set in the preferred way for workers to sign into the site. These options are set up and managed by the head contractor and depend on the site conditions and preferred operating practices of the site. This option will impact your sign-in options and how your app works to sign on.
These options include:
When a site is set to the Automatic sign-on option, this allows you to sign onto the site with your phone app either Automatically or Manually.
Automatic sign-on is a default setting for all sites unless changed.
- When the SignOnSite App is set to Automatic will automatically sign into the site.
- When the SignOnSite App is set to Manual you will need to open the app and search for the site to sign into the site.
When a site is set to Manual, you will need to search for a site and sign on every time you come to the site. This is regardless of whether you have set your phone to automatic or manual.
Prompted sign-on option has been designed in instances where there are multiple sites nearby (i.e. several different sites in one high-rise tower).After a first sign-on for a site, you will be prompted to sign onto the site when they enter the SignOnSite safety zone. You will not not be signed on until you confirm sign on. This is regardless of whether you have set your phone to automatic or manual.
Site Specific QR Code
A QR code can be added to your site entry signs and gateways giving your teams another way of signing on and accessing their site docs.
The QR code is particularly helpful for:
Sites that experience interference with location services
If workers are having trouble signing in to sites with the app in these scenarios, they can simply scan the QR code to sign in - the feature does not need location services to work.
Sites that are set to a 'Manual' sign-on
This is very useful for certain customers (e.g. fit-out) who have multiple different sites that are ‘stacked’ directly on top of each other.
For workers who do not want to use location services
Rather than them not using the app and having to use a kiosk or being manually signed on by a site manager, they can still use the app and sign on via QR code instead.
To assist in onboarding first-time SignOnSite users or if it's their first day on the project
People don’t need to ask or think about what site they need to sign on to, and helps them avoid signing in to an incorrect site.
The QR code sign-on feature uses deep linking - if a person scans the QR code and does not have the app installed or they are not logged in to the app, they will be immediately signed on to the site after being prompted to download the app and creating an account, or directly after logging in to the app.
How to access the Site SignOn QR Code
Kiosk sign in
A kiosk sign-in option is available instead of using a smartphone to sign on. This option is only available if the Head Contractor has set up a separate kiosk for signing on.
If there is a kiosk available on-site, site teams can also set up the option to read 'Briefings' on the kiosk and also the ability to complete Inductions.
Site Manager or Subcontractor Supervisor reporting options
Another option available to all workers on site is the ability to report to a Site Manager with SignOnSite Management access to sign you on. Site Managers can sign you on either on their phone or the computer.
If there is a 'Briefing' set for the site, the Site Manager can show you the briefing and they can mark you off as having read the briefing.
Worker Managed Options
- App sign-on option: Automatic or Manual
- Reporting to Site Manager
App sign-on options: Automatic or Manual
If a site is set to Automatic sign-on (see above), you have the control to set how you sign onto the site.
You can either set your app to Automatic (automatically signing you on or off-site) or Manual (requiring you to search for the site to sign on, and manually sign off when you leave).
This setting is found under the 'App settings'
. . .
If you choose to use the Automatic sign-on option, you must be given your phone the correct app permission to ensure that your sign-on is accurate each time you enter and leave the site.
Reporting to a Site Manager
This option does not require you to use the app and will require you to report to a Site Manager with the ability to sign you on and off.
