If your business operates in multiple states, learn how to choose the best local settings for each location.

If your business operates in multiple states, you may have to set different policies for data collection and data retention in order to comply properly with each state's data privacy or ID scanning laws. Or, in another example, you might have to follow industry-specific regulations that vary considerably from state-to-state dictating what kinds of IDs you can accept at your cannabis dispensary.
VeriScan uses Local Settings Profiles to synchronize settings across multiple devices. There's a default profile that will apply to all your locations and devices, and you can also create additional profiles if you need certain locations and devices to follow different settings.
Default Local Settings Profile
In the VeriScan Cloud portal, admins can navigate to Settings > Local Settings and review each tab, changing the settings to ensure your scanning complies with the first state's regulations. This is the Default profile for local settings and will apply automatically to all Locations and Devices in your account.
Create a 2nd Local Settings Profile
Now, if you need to choose different Local Settings to apply only to specific Locations and Devices in your account, you can click the Create New button.
You can choose to copy settings from your Default (or any other) setting profile, or just start fresh from the initial Local Settings given to every VeriScan account. Click Create button to switch to this profile. Once created, you'll see the name of the settings profile in the dropdown menu at the top of the section. Changes made to every tab in Local Settings will apply to the profile selected.
Assign a Settings Profile to Your Locations
Now that you've created two different Local Settings profiles, you can choose which Locations will use which profile. Admins can navigate to Locations and click the edit button on the location they wish to update. Then choose the correct Settings Profile from those you've created and click Update to save.
Connect Devices to the Right Locations
Now, all that is left is to ensure that the scanning devices being used are assigned to the correct locations. Navigate to Access Management > Devices and click the edit button to assign an existing device to the correct location. You can also do this while creating a new device login. Click Update to save.
