How to clean my database
If your visitor database becomes too large, or you have already extracted all the information that you need, you can select the "clear database" option from the settings menu. This will permanently delete all data from your visitors. You cannot recover them.
How to send Email notification
If you want to notify the host of the arrival of your visitor, you can activate free of charge the option from the application option menu. This will present an email template after the capture of the picture (or just after the visitor information if the picture step has been suppressed). The visitor can then simply add any comments, or push the send button to notify of his arrival. If you want that notification to be silently sent in the background, you can purchase the option. When the visitor registers, the App will contact the Maitre D4U server and pass the information for the email to be sent from that relay. Internet connectivity will be required by the iPad for that feature.

For your convenience, here are a few Photoshop templates to design your HSE/Disclaimer image.
