Cameo Signup is a web app for use by staff or volunteers collecting contacts at a gathering of some kind. Previously specific to Camcycle, the app is now generic and available to all Cameo installations.
It’s a special kind of web page which works offline, and, once installed, should only need an internet connection to upload the saved details to Cameo after an event (when a connection is available).

Signup requires an eight-digit PIN number to be provided to the device running the app.
PINs are allocated in Cameo using a new section, Signup PINs, on the Profile menu.
Click new pin to allocate a new PIN number, then update the name to something meaningful such as the name of the person or device using it. Click view on the relevant row to see and copy the PIN number.
The PIN used also determines what contact type will be assigned to the newly-added contacts by devices using that PIN.
