Steps for setting up Verkada Mailroom
Updated this week

Verkada Mailroom enables your organization to quickly and securely manage packages that are delivered. Mailroom can also leverage camera feeds to allow you to see when a package was delivered, scanned, or picked up.

General Setup

Once a Verkada Mailroom license has been activated in your organization, a Mailroom tab will appear in your All Products section. Click on this tab to begin setup:

Then select Mailroom Settings

There are two types of settings available for Mailroom: Org level and Site level. The tab that shows the name of your organization is the Org level settings, Sites will be the Site level settings.

Let's start by observing the org level settings

Account

The account page allows you to manage the company name and logo & colors. These settings will provide the default values for all Mailroom sites.

Sites

The sites section is used to convert pre-existing camera sites into Mailroom sites. Once a Mailroom site is created, you will be redirected to a site configuration page.

Employees

This section enables you to choose who in your organization will be able to receive packages, which is used for tracking and logging.

In order to add an employee, you can choose one of the following methods:

  • Add individual

    Manually adding users.

  • Bulk upload CSV

    The .csv file must have the following headers, which are case-sensitive:

fullname

email

phone

photo

Example User

+1 650-123-4567

Note: Both the phone and photo columns must exist, however populating values for these columns is optional.

  • Sync with identity provider

Alternatively, if your organization has an existing SCIM integration you can import employees from your SCIM-managed groups. More information can be found here.

Notifications

This section allows you to choose how users will be notified when a package is delivered. Currently, email, SMS, Slack, and MS Teams notifications are supported. More information on configuring notifications can be found here.
