Updated on:

A station is used to allow people to check in. It can be manned with a volunteer, it can be a self station, allowing anyone to check in members of their family and themselves, or it can be used as a roster or class list.

Download the Check-Ins App

Download the Check-Ins app, available on iOS, Android, Mac, and Windows. They can even work on Android-based Chromebooks if you don't need to print labels. Check out our device recommendations.

Set Up Station

Choose a station, and then select the theme, where you'd like labels to print, and if the station should lock to one event or location.

Manned Station

A Manned Station is great for checking in new people. It needs to have a designated person who can access information in the database. Manned stations should not be available for anyone to search because sensitive information is accessible.

Self Station

A Self Station allows a person to quickly check in members of the household, according to the phone number or code they use. It's used by returning families who have checked in before. No staff or volunteer person required.

Roster Station

A Roster Station is a digital class list, which allows a teacher to check who arrives at their class. Rosters populate based on the people who have previously checked into the location or event.

Want to auto-populate rosters?

A roster station is populated by check-ins to the event based on the number of days or weeks you choose. A roster station will not show any names on the list until an event has recorded check-ins for that number of days or weeks. If you want a roster station to show names, you can add past sessions with those people listed in them.

After you've set up your station, you're ready to check people into the event.
