About this feature

You can capture a person's temperature in the check-in portal and prevent them from entering a location and completing a check-in if their temperature exceeds the upper or lower limit for entering the location.

Example interaction flow

1) Health safety officer checks the individual's temperature:

  • If their temperature is unacceptable, verbally communicate their temperature to them and tell them to go home and get tested

  • If their temperature is acceptable to ask, verbally communicate their temperature to them, and tell them to scan the QR

2) The individual scans the QR code and completes the check-in form

3) The individual shows a health officer or staff member the check-in success page

  • If you'd like to verify the temperature entered into the check-in the success page should be shown to the health safety officer that initially provided the individual's temperature

  • If the verification of temperature is not required, then any staff member or health officer can verify the check-in completion.

Usage notes

  • Temperature units. A temperature unit is not specified to allow either to be used. Do not mix temperature units in the process and use your normal units.

  • Calculated decimal precision. There is no limit to the number of decimals that can be used to record or set limits for temperature measurements.

  • Displayed decimal precision. The check-in success page will show decimals rounded to two decimal points, the download data will not be rounded.

  • Historical data. Each check-in line item will display the at-time configuration of upper and lower limits meaning historical data will be unaffected by changes.

  • Limits are inclusive. When setting an upper or lower temperature limit, the limits will be inclusive e.g. a limit of 38.9 will accept submitted values of 38.9.

  • Limits are optional. If the limits are not set, the lower and upper default limits are 30 and 120 respectively ( body temperature extremes in Celcius and Fahrenheit).
