Welcome screen

In this article

When the Envoy Visitors app is open, it displays the welcome screen. This is the first screen your visitors will see, and it has the “Tap to sign in” button.

How the welcome screen works

If you have a logo uploaded for your location, that logo will appear on your welcome screen by default. If you do not have a logo, your company name will appear in black text. This article will outline other options to customize the welcome screen design.

Benefits of customizing your welcome screen

  • Wow guests with a modern first impression
  • Showcase your branding

Designing the welcome screen

Your welcome screen is yours. You choose if you’d like to leave it simple, or add a more complex design.

Envoy automatically selects a matching accent color for your buttons, but you can change it in Visitors > Settings > Account under Accent color.

Logo

By default, your logo will appear on a white background. Yelp’s welcome screen is a great example of this clean look. Welcome screen

Welcome image

The Honest Company and Hightail use the welcome image feature to display an image (or GIF!) that’s different from their logo.

Enable the welcome image

  1. Go to Visitors > Settings > Welcome screen.
  2. Locate Welcome image and click “Enable.”
  3. Upload an image or GIF. Images that are 1000px square are best.

Slideshow & welcome image together

Available on Envoy Premium & Enterprise Plans

POPSUGAR uses both the slideshow and welcome image features for their bold welcome screen design. In this example, the welcome image is a white, transparent PNG, and it appears over the slideshow image. Welcome screen

Enable the slideshow & welcome image

  1. Go to Visitors > Settings > Welcome screen.
  2. Locate Welcome image and click “Enable.”
  3. Upload an image or GIF. Images that are 1000px square are best.
    • Here, they’ve uploaded a white, transparent PNG.
  4. Locate Slideshow, and click “Enable.”
  5. Upload up to 10 images. Images that are 1536 x 2048px are best.
  6. Toggle the Hide company logo from welcome screen to the “off” position.

If you’d like to use a slideshow only without a welcome image or logo on top, simply toggle Hide company logo from welcome screen to the “on” position.

Background color

By default, your logo or welcome image will appear on a white background, but you can change your background color at any time.

Background color

Change the background color

  1. Go to Visitors > Settings > Welcome screen.
  2. Locate Background color and click “Enable.”
  3. Click “Choose a color.”
  4. Use the color palate or enter a specific HEX value.

Envoy will automatically determine if the text should appear black or white to be easiest to read.

Welcome screen features

In addition to the welcome screen design, there are three features that you’ll also configure from your Visitors >Settings > Welcome screen page.

When enabled, these features will appear as a button on the bottom of your iPad’s welcome screen.

Been here before?

The ‘Been here before?’ feature allows returning visitors to sign in faster by putting in their email address first. Learn more about ‘Been here before?’.

Deliveries

The deliveries feature within Envoy Visitors allows you to designate one employee in your directory as the delivery contact. That person will receive a special notification whenever a delivery is signed in on the Visitor sign-in kiosk. Learn more about delivery contact notifications.
