Volante paired with K4Community allows resident users to access their Volante dining balance in K4Community Plus. After Volante has been enabled for your K4Community system, a resident’s dining balance will dynamically appear in K4Community Plus. In the Dining section of the resident app, a card will be visible and this card will share the resident’s up-to-date dining balance in Volante.
The Volante integration requires minimal management after the initial implementation in which community teams will need to “map” or “relate” a resident record in K4Community to a resident record in Volante. This is done in Team Hub.
To learn more about how to manage your Volante Point of Sale integration with K4Community, continue reading below.
To enable Volante, you will need to provide K4Connect with your community’s Volante ID. Your Customer Success Manager will then support you in mapping resident records in K4Community to resident records in Volante. This can be done in bulk by K4Connect or manually in Team Hub by the community team.
For more information and to enable Volante, please contact your Customer Success Manager.

How Residents View Transaction History
Resident’s can view transactions that are accounted for in Point-of-Sale Integrations (Volante or Fullcount) without having to log into the POS system itself. This will enable them to verify that the balance is accurate and that they are only being charged for the meals and items they purchase. The Transaction Card lives in the “What’s New” section and “Dining Info” section of the Plus App.
Note: Residents should NOT have to enter any information (logins, account names, passwords, etc.) to view their balance or access any of the Levels described below.
Viewing Transaction History – This data is pulled from Volante and updated in K4Community Plus every 2 hours.
