The setup screen allows you to specify kiosk-based features including check in and check out; advance bill on check in; credit card authorization by third-party system; show reservations paid for by guest; and enforced name validation between the name input at the kiosk and the name on the OPERA reservation. You may also specify the billing screen windows that can be settled by kiosk check out.
