Splash Pages

  • Updated

Within Onboarding, splash pages allow you to manage every step of your visitor WiFi experience, from login methods and beautifully designed splash pages, to branding, promotions and advertising that encourage spend and help drive revenue. You can create splash pages for the following access journeys:

  • Offline - This page is always required as part of the onboarding to WiFi. These pages appear before the user logs in and authenticates the user onto the network. The page can display limited content, but it cannot include external links/resources as the user is still in the Walled Garden.

  • Online - Appears after the user successfully logs in to the WiFi, these pages are optional as an access journey may redirect the user to a URL instead. As these pages appears after the login you can display external links and media such as promotions and offers, upcoming event information and links to your website.
  • Out of hours - A special type of offline page to prevent logins outside of configured business hours. Similar to an offline splash page the user is in the Walled Garden and therefore you can only display limited content.

Splash pages are built using either a standard type where you can use a simple form to choose which elements to include or the HTML type which gives you access to custom HTML, CSS and JavaScript. Once you have created your splash pages you can then create the customer access journey.
