Lead Capture Mobile App

Overview

End users will capture Prospect information by entering data onto a custom form, scanning badges, capturing business cards, and more. This document will guide users through downloading the app, setting it up, and capturing Prospect data.

Getting Started With the Mobile App

Before your event, make sure you have the latest version of the mobile app installed on your device. The app currently supports Apple iOS version 11+ and Android version 5.1+. 

If your users cannot access the Google Play Store, Android users may download our APK directly to install. The user must give their device permission to install from unknown sources. Click below to access the appropriate APK.

Captello™

Currently Apple does not allow for similar side-loading methods on iOS or iPadOS devices. If you need to side load on an iOS or iPadOS device, please contact Lead Liaison support for more options.

New Users

If you are a new user, you will receive an email with an invitation code and links to the App Store and Play Store. If you prefer a text message invite, please contact your event coordinator before the event. After installing,

  • Open the mobile app

  • Enter your email

  • Enter your authentication code

  • Tap Authenticate

  • If prompted, allow notifications

Once you have authenticated, you will not need to do so again. The app will remember your device unless you uninstall the app or manually unauthenticate.

Existing Users

If you are an existing user, you are ready to go. Make sure you have the most up-to-date version of the app. Normally the app will update automatically through the App Store, but it is best to check for pending updates before the event.

If you uninstalled the app or unauthenticated after your last event, simply use the same authentication code and follow the steps above. If you no longer have your code, ask your event coordinator to resend it. 

Using the App

When you first log in to the app, you will see the Events screen. The Events screen will only show events you have been invited to.

While the App loads, you will see a syncing bar at the bottom. If this is your first time opening the app, it might take up to 30 seconds to fully sync everything. 

Tap on an Event to open its options.


  • Capture - open event lead capture form

  • Rapid Scan - opens the badge scanner or business card element for the form and allows the user to scan one after another. This option is only displays if an administrator has added it to the form properties.
  • Review Submissions - view or edit previously-captured leads

  • Instructions - view instructions for this event

  • Cancel - return to Events screen


Mobile App Menu

Settings

Before starting, review your device settings. To access settings, tap the menu icon in the top-right corner and select Settings.

Organization

The organization section shows data on your organization's profile from Lead Liaison. This data is for informational purposes only and cannot be changed within the app. 

  • Name– the name of the organization

  • Key– device key for testing purposes only

  • Operator– user the device is assigned to

  • Device ID - a unique ID for your device (may be used for support purposes)

Localization

Change the displayed language. App menus, field labels, and field hints will change, but Event Names and locations will not change. 

The app will detect the user's default language settings on their device. If supported, it will automatically adjust to that localization if Auto Translate is turned on in the back end. 

Automatic Upload

The operations section has the automatic upload option. By default, automatic upload is enabled. While it is enabled, Captello will automatically push new prospects to the Lead Liaison platform. If you prefer to review submissions before sending them off, turn this toggle off. 

Save Business Cards on Device

Saves a copy of the business card image (both front and back) in images locally on your device. 

Reminder for Unsubmitted Leads

Sends a notification if leads have not been submitted from the device to the server. This notification may be triggered when leads are collected in bulk. For example, from Rapid Scanning badges or business cards. 

Auto-Crop

Turning this setting on will crop the image of the business card around the card only. Works best with contrasted backgrounds. Cropped images are easier to transcribe and result in higher quality results. 

Kiosk Mode

Use this section to manage your kiosk mode password. If you open a kiosk mode form without setting a password, the app will ask you to create one at that time. If you forget your kiosk mode password, you will have to return to your device's home screen and exit the app to restart it. 

Single Tap Selection

Allows a single tap on drop downs and eliminates the need to make a selection and then click a button to enter your choice. 

Diagnostics

The Diagnostics section contains information that may be required by the support team in case of any questions or concerns. To save temporary device storage, you may turn logging off. However, the support team may be unable to diagnose potential issues without logs.

Unauthenticate

To unauthenticate your device, click the red button. Keep in mind, you will need a new authentication key in order to reactivate your device.

Support

Inside the mobile application you'll see a menu option for Support. Inside this area there are three sections:

  1. Start a Conversation: This option launches a communication system that connects you with multiple members of our support team. From here the support team can provide guidance, troubleshooting, and even screen share with your mobile device. You can also search for help using a built in knowledge-base under the "Find an answer yourself" section. Support usually responds within a few hours. If your inquiry is urgent, it's possible to have a real-time conversation with a support representative. If you're not able to respond within the mobile app then an email will be sent to you. 
  2. Open a Ticket: This option opens your device's native email client. The email sends a message to support@leadliaison.com where a support ticket is opened. 
  3. Documentation: The page links to our documentation page on the web.

  • Line up the barcode on the badge with the on-screen overlay until the device beeps
  • Fill in any remaining fields that were not captured
  • Tap the Submit button in the top-right corner of the screen when complete

Badge scanning also works in offline mode. When the device is offline, you will see a green success message letting you know the scan was successful. Once you see this message, you can hit Submit. The app will fill in the scanned fields once it is back online.

If you want to scan your own badge, you can click on the camera icon in the top-right corner of the scanning screen to switch to your device's front camera.

Rapid Scan

Supported Devices

Rapid Scan for business cards only works on iOS devices. Android support will be available soon.

If you are using Rapid Scan at your event

  • Tap on the form

If using the badge scanner

  • Line up the barcode with the on-screen overlay until the device beeps

OR

  • On Android tap the back button when complete

When in Rapid Scan mode, the app will not process the same badge twice. If you accidentally scan the same person's badge multiple times, you will not see duplicate submissions.

The app will not begin processing submissions until after you exit Rapid Scan. Once you have exited, the system will run the codes through the show Organizer's API and upload to Lead Liaison's server. Depending on the number of scans, this will take several minutes.


If using the business card reader

  • Line up the business card with the on-screen overlay
  • Make sure contact data is clear and in the frame
  • Tap the Circle button to take an image

  • Tap the small preview thumbnails to delete an image
  • Tap the X button to finish

The business cards will not be sent for Transcription until after you have exited Rapid Scan. Once you exit, the system will upload the badge scans to the selected transcription portal. Depending on the number of images, this may take several minutes.

Q: Where do I find the app?

A: Links are included in your invitation email, but you can also search the Apple App Store or Google Play Store for “Captello”


Q: I don’t have an invitation code. Where do I get one?

A: Contact your event coordinator.


Q: I uninstalled the app or have a new device. How can I get my login information?

A: You can use the same code from your previous install. If you no longer have the invite email, your event coordinator can resend the invite to you.


Q: How do I update the app?

A: Like any other app on your mobile device, through the Play Store or App Store.

A: These questions were designed by your organization. Review the Event instructions and contact your event coordinator if you have questions.


Q: How long will it take to transcribe my leads?

Q: I scanned a badge but instead of contact data, I just see the word "scanned" in every field?
