This article shows how to use Splash to manage the WiFi access and authentication of office employees, members or contractors.
The first step of the process consist of creating a nominal network account in Cloud4Wi. There are sever possibilities to do so, including:
- Create each user manually via the Cloud4Wi Dashboard
- Create accounts programmatically via APIs
In this article, we'll describe an alternative experience that allows the employees to register autonomously and have an admin approving them, reducing the IT burden.
Create an Onboarding Portal using a Splash Page, and send the link to your employees via email.
The employee will open the Onboarding Portal and register by filling the form. Click here to see a demo Onboarding Portal.
A predefined Admin, as configured using the Sponsorship Validation, will be notified that an Employee has registered, and he has to approve his account and assign an Access Policy (it can be an unlimited time policy for employees or, for example, a policy with expiration for contractors).
The Employee receives a confirmation email that reminds him of the account credentials and provides the instructions to connect to the WiFi. The email content and design can be customized form the Cloud4Wi Dasbhaord > Preferences section.
The Employee connects to the company SSID, configured with WPA2 Enterprise configuration, and follow the steps as detailed in the instructions. This process is different for each OS. Read this article to find the instructions related to each device type.
