USER GUIDES

1. Lockers

As opposed to set-up items and locks, lockers are tied to a school year. So, each year you create a set of lockers, because each year they are reserved for students (and they may vary year on year). With a single click, lockers are 'generated' based on the locker layout. This process is repeated every year.

The lockers screen

Always, first make sure you are looking at the lockers of the correct school year. The year will default to the current year, but  can be changed. In the filter bar you can filter the list by: Locations or Vertical positions. 

 

You can also search directly for a locker by typing your search in the search box and type 'Search':

  • The locker number.

  • Name or order or reservation number for a reservation (for allocated lockers only).

  • The serial number (for lockers with an assigned lock only).

You can sort the list by clicking on the column headers.

Click on a locker, to open the side-bar.

The side bar contains the following information:

  • Information about the locker, location, type and where it is located.

  • Information about the lock assigned to the locker.

  • Information about the student to whom the locker is allocated.

  • A section which is used to allocate the locker to a student.

  • A section which is used to assign a lock to the locker.

Generate Lockers (for a year)

Each year, you will start with an empty locker list. Follow these steps to populate the list with lockers for a certain year:

  1. Make sure that the Layout is set up correctly. Any changes during the year need to be reflected in the layout. These changes can be removed lockers, added lockers, lockers moved to another location, etc. Refer to the guide about layout set up for more information.

  2. In the Lockers screen, select the correct school year on the top left.

  3. Click 'Generate Lockers'

Assign Locks

Each locker can have a lock assigned to it. This is optional, in many cases no locks are necessary are needed to manage the locker process.

  1. Make sure that all locks are uploaded into the Locks screen.

  2. Click on the locker to open the side bar.

  3. In the Assign Lock section, use the touch pad or type in the box the lock serial number, starting with the last digit, then proceeding with the second last digit, etc.

  4. The list of locks will now narrow down until you can select the lock you want to assign.

  5. Tap or click on the lock to assign.

The assigned lock information will show in the side bar. To remove the lock from the locker, click the broken link icon.

Allocate a locker to a student

Usually lockers are allocated manually to students via the Reservations screen, or are automatically allocated at the time of reservation, however it can also be done in the Lockers screen. Allocation emails cannot be sent from the Lockers screen.

Activate / De-activate lockers

If a locker is temporarily unavailable due to it being damaged, inaccessible or you want to exclude it from being available to be allocated, you can de-activate a locker. This means:
  1. The locker cannot be allocated via the reservations form. The system will not include the locker in the count of available lockers to work out how many reservations can be accepted.
  2. In the Reservations screen, the locker cannot be allocated to a student.
  3. In the Lockers screen, you can still allocate the locker to a student (this could cater for special scenarios you may encounter).
  1. In the Lockers screen, click on the locker to open the side bar.

  2. Toggle the Active switch, to either activate or to de-activate the locker.

Note: In some browsers the Active switch will look like a check box

2. Reservations

Possible reasons for manual reservations: You have types of lockers that you do not want to be available for reservations online. You have full control over whose reservations are accepted. You can enter reservations manually via the Reservations screen and let the app send a payment request email. In the email there will be a link which, when clicked, will open a payment screen. The payment will be done online and the reservation will be updated to reflect the payment.

Enter a manual Reservation

In the Reservations Screen, click Manual Reservation

In the side-panel, enter the reservation data:

  1. Order Number: Keep your own numbering system for manual orders. This will help you to keep track of how many reservations you have entered.

  8. The Locker Price should have populated when the locker type is selected. If you do not charge a fee, the price should be zero and you should tick Paid.

  9. Tick Paid if you do not want to charge a fee or if you have accepted payment already. Do not tick Paid if you want to collect a payment.

  10. Tick Send Payment Request if you want to collect payment. An email will be sent to the address entered above.

Payment Request

A message on your screen confirms that the email with payment request has been sent. If you want to send the request again, access the reservation, tick Send Payment Request and click Save.

The Reservation will show in the Reservations screens with a clock icon to indicate that payment is pending.

The Customer clicks the link in the Payment Request email and pays for the Locker.

The clock icon will no longer appear in the Reservations Screen. Also, in the side-bar, when accessing reservation details, the Paid checkbox will be ticked.

Allocate a locker manually

Manual locker allocations may be needed in certain cases, for example when a special requirement exists or in case you need to ensure the correct locker is allocated to a particular student.
