Initial Setup Wizard


 

If this is the first time setting up the photo station–or if the settings have been reset–you will need to accept the license agreement.

Calibrate the touchscreen monitor by touching the targets.

 

Internet Configuration Wizard

Go through the steps to configure your internet. Choose from wireless or ethernet.

For ethernet, physically plugging the ethernet cord into the photo station will be all that is needed for most networks.

For wireless, select your network from the list. We recommend 70% or higher signal strength.

Configure iSnap

iSnap Cloud

To connect the photo station to your cloud account, enter your username & password from your onboarding email. *Any cloud account can be tied to any physical photo station. Please take caution so as there are no conflicts between two cloud devices being online at the same time. This may trigger one or both systems to go Out of Order.

Brand Name

Enter your name and description for your company, or event. This info goes on the user’s facebook post.

Twitter Handle

Please enter the twitter page you wish user’s to follow. *Enter the twitter handle without the @ symbol.

For example, to set https://twitter.com/isnapofficial as the twitter page, enter isnapofficial into the field.

Facebook Location Page

If your facebook page has a physical address listed, and allows check-ins/visits, you can set the Location page. Enter the CID instead of vanity name.   You can find this at http://www.findmyfbid.com

Facebook Fan Page

This is the field where you designate the facebook page to receive Likes from users. Enter the CID, which is found at http://www.findmyfbid.com

Facebook CID (ID#)

There will be times when the vanity name or alias will not work.  The Facebook page will not show because we are not logged into facebook on the photo station. In this case, look up the facebook CID# using these instructions: http://support.isnap.com/?p=93

Date, Time, Timezone

This is self-explanatory, but is important to ensure proper posting to facebook and twitter.

Load Graphic Overlay

If you have your overlay file ready, you can load it here via USB. If your overlay is not ready or unavailable, close the window to proceed and come back here at another time after the initial setup.

iSnap Modules and Settings

If you have Pro Tools software active, you will see tabs here which allow for extended features & options. If you do not have Pro Tools–or wish to skip setting these features up at this time–close the window to proceed.

Set Admin Password

Last step in the setup, is setting the Shell passcode. This allows you to come back to the admin console here on the photo station.

To access the admin console again after initial setup, tap the iSnap logo on the bottom left of the regular take-photo screen.

Setup Complete!


 

Once all setup steps are done, you may start the iSnap up by tapping the Start iSnap icon on the upper right corner.

An important note for all new users: one of the most important things you can do is make sure the photo station is shut down properly when your team needs to have it powered off. DO NOT simply pull the power plug while it is running. Use the Power Options → Shutdown button and wait a few seconds after the screen goes black, before unplugging the power cord. This will prevent software issues such as startup errors, as well as physical wear and tear.
