Locator Sign In

Locator is an easy-to-use tool with simple navigation and is commonly integrated with your corporate intranet to enable easy access for all staff.

Depending on the way Locator has been configured within your business, you may sign into Locator via a kiosk or on your laptop/desktop computer as outlined below.

Serraview User Roles and Secured Actions

Locator and Apple Location Services


If you are using Apple products, then you will need to give permission before an app or website can use your location.

If you use Apple OS X and Safari, then you will need to enable the Location Services for the Mac LDM to work. Follow the instructions in the Apple article to turn on the location services, refer to About Location Services in OS X and Safari (https://support.apple.com/en-au/HT204690).

If you use an Apple iPhone or iPad, then you will need to enable the Location Services for the Mac LDM to work. Follow the instructions in the Apple article to turn on the location services, refer to Turn Location Services and GPS on or off on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch (https://support.apple.com/en-au/HT207092)

Sign in via kiosk

A kiosk is a large screen placed in a common area (i.e. reception or lift wells) so staff can walk up and use Locator to find a space, person or desk. Most commonly kiosks are set up with Locator as their home page, but occasionally clients display their corporate intranet, and people navigate through their intranet to access Locator.

On a kiosk there is no sign in required as they are configured to use IP Whitelisting. For some clients, their kiosks may display only Locator, for others they may display their corporate intranet, from which users can navigate to Locator.

Sign in via laptop or desktop

Locator is accessible from a laptop or desktop via:

  • A corporate intranet link.
  • Sign in to Serraview and then click Locator icon.

If Locator is embedded within your corporate intranet, then you can (from your laptop/desktop computer) navigate from there OR go directly to:

https:// [client_name].serraview.com/locator/

IP Whitelisting

If you are using IP Whitelisting, you will be automatically signed in.

If you have SSO configured, then:

  1. Click the Sign In with SSO Login button to sign in.

  1. In the site name field, enter your client environment name. Note: As it would be typed in your browser when accessing Serraview on a laptop/desktop computer.

When a correct client environment name is entered the user will be forwarded to the standard Serraview sign in page to authenticate into Locator.

If you do not have Single Sign On (SSO) enabled, then:

  1. Enter your user name and password.
  2. Click the Sign In button.

Apple iOS 11

If you have an apostrophe in your last name, then the Apple iOS 11 will apply smart punctuation to your name and this will cause the Serraview app login to not work. This is a known issue with iOS 11.

You will need to turn off the smart punctuation on your Apple iPhone and then you will be able to log into the Serraview App. To turn off the smart punctuation:

Navigate to Settings > General > Keyboard and then disable the Smart Punctuation.

If you have SSO enabled, then:

  1. Click the Sign In with SSO button.
