- Pairing my hardware does not work.
As part of an ESII hardware installation, it comes with a device that enables automatic dialogue with the cloud server.
When the hardware is powered and connected to the Internet, it automatically displays a code allowing it to be paired:
- For a CTIP, the pairing code is displayed on the LCD screen.
- For a twana touch terminal, the pairing code is displayed directly on the touch screen.
- For a video screen controlled by our PC, the pairing code is displayed directly on the video screen.
Then, this code must be associated with the device configured in the administration interface of your system before validating the pairing. For more information, refer to the chapter "Receiving Devices" in the user manual.
If the pairing code does not appear, please check the following:
- If the equipment is not powered, test the power supply, for example by plugging a mobile phone with its charger and then visually checking its charge indicator.
- Visually check the indicator light of the power supply.
- Visually check the power indicator of the device (PC video, TECIP or CTIP).
- Check the Internet connection, connecting a laptop and / or checking the mains connection.
- Check network permissions, knowing that our products use an https connection (port 443) and an outgoing MQTT connection (port 8883)
In connection with the pairing of a device not provided by ESII, we cannot guarantee its compatibility and be held responsible for its non-connection.

How do I declare my visit purposes in Orion?
The purposes are declared via the “Purposes” menu of the administration module. The action adds a new visit purpose.
Creation of a purpose and the presentation of the different fields to be filled in are presented in the "Discover Orion and its configuration" video (from 1:22).
- How do I permit making appointments online for a purpose?
Permit making appointments online for a purpose, by checking the “Visible on making the appointment” option in the settings of the selected purpose.
This is done through the “Purposes” menu of the administration module:
Then consider assigning abilities to your resources on this purpose (See "How do I assign abilities to my resources?").
Also consider creating a booking time slot on this purpose on the resources concerned (See "How do I assign a booking time slot?").
- Can priority be given to receiving a user according to the purpose for their visit?
To prioritise receiving users according to their visit purposes, simply change the “abilities” of your resource groups (users/workstations).
By assigning a “Main” ability level to your resource groups on a purpose, you give priority to receiving users for this purpose, compared to the other purposes that are managed with lower abilities (such as “High” or “Low”).
This is configured through the “Abilities” menu of the administration module:
Here, the “Weasy” purpose is given priority compared to the other purposes for all the advisers.
For more information about abilities, please read “What are the possible ability levels?”
Prioritising certain purposes leads to a different reception speed depending on the purposes. Also consider assigning different call prefixes to your purposes (See “Can I assign separate call prefixes to my visit purposes?”).
- Can different abilities be assigned to the resources of the same group?
The “abilities” of your resources defined in the corresponding tab of the administration module are presented in a table with the groups of purposes in the rows and the groups of resources in the columns.
There are 3 gradual levels able to respond to all the different desired ways of working:
Assigning abilities according to groups of resources and groups of purposes:
The group of resources, “Laverune” has a “Strong” ability level over the group of purposes “Accueil”.
Assigning abilities according to groups of resources and according to purposes:
The group of resources, “Laverune” has “Strong” abilities over the “Orion” purpose and “Unmanaged” over the “Weasy” purpose.
These two purposes belong to the same group of purposes.
Assigning abilities according to resources and according to purposes:
To complete this topic please watch the video “Discover Orion and managing abilities”.
- What are the possible ability levels?
Five levels are available in Orion, listed below:
“Main” This level indicates an absolute prioritisation in dealing with users who come for this visit purpose. This means that an adviser who has this level of strategy for one or more purposes will only call users who have come for this/these purpose(s). When no more users are waiting for these purpose(s), the adviser can then receive users who have come for the other purposes for which they have lesser strategies, such as “High” and “Low”.
“High” and “Low” These are levels for dealing with users that are strictly lower than the “Main” value. The "High" value signifies 30 times greater support than the “Low” value.
“Choice”: This level allows a user to be selected from the list by a manual action of the resource. For information, please watch the video “Discover Orion and managing abilities”.
“Unmanaged” The purpose is never served by the resource.
- Can I assign separate call prefixes to the visit purposes?
By default, all the tickets issued are in the same number range. The number assigned then depends on the order of arrival of the users, regardless of the purpose selected.
When you apply priority to certain purposes, the order of reception will then be established according to the ability levels of the connected resources over the different purposes. So it is customary to assign different number ranges to the purposes in order to ensure this reception mode works properly.
To do so, simply assign a call prefix to the purpose. This is done in the settings of the selected purpose in the “Purposes” menu of the administration module:
How is the duration of an appointment calculated?
When making an appointment online the user specifies a visit purpose, or several of them (See the video How to make an appointment ?).
The duration of the interview is the time needed to process the selected purpose, or the sum of the processing times of the purposes if several purposes have been entered. That is why it is important to define the processing time for each purpose.
As a reminder, the purposes are accessible via the “Purposes” menu of the administration module.
How do I assign a booking time slot?
A booking time slot is a period of time, placed on the schedule of a resource, that allows online appointments to be made for one or more groups of purposes.
The programming is made in the Diary module. Launch it and view the weekly schedule for the resource. Use the “site” field to view the desired employees in the list and click the date to adjust it.
Select the time slot on the desired employee’s diary by holding down the left mouse button.
When the click is released, a pop-up appears.
Stay on the “time slot” tab, and complete the information:
- Edit the site, if necessary
- Readjust the times
- If necessary, select the “periodicity” checkbox with the relevant days and the end date.
NB: for periodic time slots, the system will not create a time slot on public holidays (See “How to manage public holidays in time slots”).
- Choose the reception mode among the 3 possibilities:
- The “Purposes” section lists the groups of purposes supported by the resource. Specify on which appointment template you want each group of purposes of the list to be displayed.
If you want to display it on all the templates, choose “Enable”.
The “Disable” value prohibits appointments being made on this group of purposes.
- Confirm by clicking on the “OK” button
How do I enable identification of appointments on the kiosk?
To enable the identification of users with an appointment on a terminal, simply activate the corresponding option, “Appointment arrival identification” in the settings of the terminal concerned.
Access to the settings of the terminal is in the “Equipment” menu of the administration module.
Identification on the terminal is via the QRcode reader if it has one or by entering the appointment code.
- An error message on the kiosk screen following the change of paper?
If the terminal displays the error message "Terminal unavailable" on the screen following the change of the paper roll, make 4 successive clicks on the top left corner, or on the top corner at right of the screen. The kiosk will display the home page again.
Video & Communication
Can users be called by their name?
Users can be called by their ticket number or by their name if this is known to the system, as is the case for appointments.
You set “the display mode” in the settings on your screen, accessible in the “Equipment” menu of the administration module.
Select the value "by name" for the "User Display Format" field.
Note: The display mode is specific to each video screen.
Reception of users
