Launch Station

To get started, download the Check-Ins app on any device you'd like. The app is available on iOSAndroid, Mac, and Windows.

When you launch a station, you decide what type of station you’d like to launch and on which device you’d like that station to be located.

Minimum requirements:

  • IOS 8.0
  • Android 4.4
  • MacOS 10.8
  • Windows 7

When you open a station on any device, you then have to set it up:

Once you select Create my station, you have the option to create three different types of stations.

Manned Station

A manned station is great for when a new person is checking in. Each manned station needs to have one designated person to be able to access information in the database. Manned stations should not be available for anyone to search, as sensitive information is accessible.

Once you've chosen a theme, the last step requires you to choose where you'd like labels to print as well as if the station should lock to one event or location.

If your station is locked to an event or location, it will not be able to access other events or locations until it is edited on the Admin side.

Select Finish, and your device is set to be a manned station. Search a person's name, phone number, or barcode to check them in.

Self Station

A self station allows a person to quickly check in members of the household, according to the phone number, barcode, or mobile pass they use. A self station is made for returning families who know what they are doing. No staff or volunteer person required.

Select how to allow people to search for their name, by keypad or scanner--or both--then choose the theme for the station.

Choose where you'd like labels to print as well as if the station should lock to one event or location.

If your station is locked to an event or location, it will not be able to access other events or locations until it is edited on the Admin side.

Select Finish to be taken to the check-in screen, where you can enter a phone number or scan a barcode or mobile pass, depending on your search selection.

Roster Station

A roster station is a digital class list, which allows a teacher to check who arrives to class. Rosters populate based on the people who have previously checked into the class depending on the number of days required for the roster to populate.

Select the event for the roster station as well as the location you'd like to display. Then choose when to populate the station.

A roster station is populated by check-ins to the event based on the number of days or weeks you choose. A roster station cannot be used until an event has recorded check-ins for that number of days or weeks.

If you want labels to print as you check in people, you can set which station to print the labels to.

Once you Finish, you'll be taken to your roster station where you can add a check next to anyone who arrives.

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