Mandatory data collection to print

I would LOVE the option that will only allow the photo to print when the guest types in a required field. (Like a cellphone or email, etc)

This would be a huge feature for corporate events, bridal shows, seminars, etc.

    Thanks for the suggestion. You can use the gateway screen that type of
    thing now.

    Thank you. But, does that require having an active internet connection in order to work? Most all events don't have a stable internet connection. Even if we bring our own hotspot.

    No. You can run a local webserver and point the screen to that

    Thank you John. I will have to figure out how to run a local web server. How to configure the pages. And, lastly...I think I would need to update to 6GB?

    What is 6GB? Do you mean memory?

    Just go to and contract someone to create a local web
    application to do what you want.
    Node js,, makes it pretty simple to create what you
    want, and then they could use something like to package it up into an executable
    which you can run.

    If 6GB means Sparkbooth 6, then yes. The gateway screen is available in
    Sparkbooth 6.

    I checked out those help links. Setting this up would be way tooooo advanced for me. I'm a DIY type of guy. But, that's beyond my expertise. :(

    That is why I recommended contracting someone. It is a pretty simple job
    for someone who is a web developer.
