Understanding Tiered Logins

What are Tiered Logins?

Tiered Logins allow you to use a tiered system of login pages.
For example, you could have a splash page with 1 hour free WiFi, followed by one with paid voucher access.
To set up Tiered Logins on your SSID follow these steps:
1
Head into your location in the dashboard and select Splash on the left sidebar.
2
Ensure you have two or more splash pages created. Click the action button to the right of the first splash page you want to set the weight on, and select Edit (In our example this would be the 1 hour free WiFi splash).
3
Scroll down to the Advanced Settings card. You will see a field labelled Weight.
4
Adjust the weight settings to your needs. Splash pages with a larger weight will be shown before splash pages with a smaller weight.
5
Save your changes.
6
Now head back to your Splash section on the left sidebar, and select Edit for your second splash page (This will be the paid splash page that appears after the free one).
7
Scroll down to the Advanced Settings card and set the Weight to something smaller than your previous splash page..
8
Save your changes.
Now once a user's time has expired on the first splash page, they will see the second splash page. 

Using Timeouts

Once a user has run out of time on the first splash page, they will see the second splash page. However, they will see the first one as soon as the restriction period refreshes.

For example, if you set free access 1 hour a day. They will see the free splash page again the next day. And will not see the paid splash page until they use up their free allowance.

To prevent this, you can use timeouts on the restrictions. You could, for example, set a timeout of 7 days so that they do not see the first splash page for another 7 days after using the free allowance.

To do this, follow these steps:

1
Head into your location in the dashboard and select Splash on the left sidebar.
2
Click the action button to the right of the splash page you want to set the weight on, and select Edit (In our example this would be the 1 hour free WiFi splash).
3
Scroll down to the Access Restrictions card. You will see a field labelled Timeout Days.
4
Adjust the timeout days to your needs.
5
Save your changes.

Now once a user's time has expired on the first splash page, they will not see it again until after your set Timeout Days.
