The UserID field is only used to log a user into the EIOBoard Kiosk Interface or EIOBoard Punch Interface. This unique numerical value commonly associated with a badge ID containing a magnetic stripe or barcode, an RFID tag, or fingerprint. You can set the UserID of a user through the Administrator pane in the EIOBoard Application, Browser, or Outlook Interface. UserIDs can also be assigned right from the kiosk.
Could you use an alphanumeric UserID?
Yes, the Kiosk Interface natively requires a numerical UserID but we have a setting to show a full keyboard for the ID entry prompt. This setting is under the Options tab of the Kiosk Settings. That’s it! Once configured, your users could use an extremely secure GUID as part of an access control solution.
