I have the kiosk software now what?

Getting set up requires logging into your new dashboard to activate your kiosk features.


The kiosk portion of the Smart Online Order application will require you to have a Smart Online Order menu set up so that the kiosk would be able to pull information from it.

1. Login to the loyalty Dashboard.

Now that you will be using the kiosk portion of Smart Online Order and have the kiosk software you will now be required to create a new account that will be used solely for the loyalty dashboard which is either available on the Smart Online Order WordPress website settings or via the following link:
Smart Online Order - Loyalty Dashboard Login Page

If it is your first time logging in you will need to set up your location/s by getting the Smart Online Order API/s from your Clover Dashboard (How to get your Smart Online Order API key) and then adding them to either the first-time setup page or by clicking on your business name on the top right and then manage locations.
