How do I manage the kiosk QR code timeout?

The Digital Attendance Kiosk QR code can be set to expire on a regular frequency or to not expire at all. By default, the QR code will never expire.

If you prefer to have a printed QR code, we recommend setting the code to expire daily, weekly, or never. The main reason to have the QR code expire is due to security so that users checking in or out can't save the image of the QR code and use it at their convenience.  

To change the QR code expiration frequency:  

  1. Click "Attendance" on the left sidebar.
  2. Click "Settings."
  3. Select the refresh interval from the drop-down. The options are:
    1. Every 15 minutes
    2. Hourly
    3. Twice per day (at 5 am and 12 pm)
    4. Daily (at 5 am)
    5. Weekly
    6. Never

Note: All kiosks will need to be relaunched after changing the expiration interval (this requires you to log in to your admin account on the device(s) for digital attendance, go to "Attendance," then click "Launch Kiosk").


1. The first step is to open Curacubby and click Attendance


2. Click Settings


3. To change the refresh interval, click the QR Code Refresh dropdown menu.


4. Select Refresh Interval. Note: you will need to relaunch any kiosks that are currently running in order for this to take effect. 


5. To print to QR code, click Print your QR code. You will be prompted to print the code. You will need to reprint the kiosk each time it expires, based on your refresh settings. (Not recommended for kiosks that refresh every 15 minutes or hourly). 


6. That's it. You're done.

Here's an interactive tutorial

To print the QR code: 

  1. Click "Attendance" on the left sidebar.
  2. Click "Settings."
  3. Click "Print your QR code." Parents can then scan the printout of the QR code rather than scanning the QR code displayed on a tablet.
  4. The QR code will need to be re-printed each time it expires (the expiration time is noted above the print button).

* We do not recommend printing the QR code for schools that have set expirations every 15 minutes or every hour.
