Tabs and Past Attendees on Roster Station

You can customize your roster station settings depending on which event or location you want your volunteer to access and how much attendance data you want to see on the Ready tab.

  1. Select which tabs you want visible on the roster station. For example, if you use the station just to check people out, only check the Here box.

    • Show security codes on the station for additional verification.

    • Enable Confirm check-ins to allow the classroom teacher to mark arrivals as confirmed.

    • If the roster station is used to check out children from multiple locations, enable Check-out from all locations to add an All Locations button to the Here tab. The All Locations button displays a list of everyone checked in to every location, which can speed up the check out process!

  2. Each roster station must be locked to a specific event and, typically, a location. If you choose All locations, the volunteer will see a location dropdown on the station to switch between the locations tied to that event.

    Tip

    Lock your roster station to a location folder in your event if you want volunteers to see more than one location, but not all.

  3. Select how many sessions you want the roster to use to determine who appears on the Ready tab.

    Notice

    If a child no longer fits the filters for a location, they will still appear on the Ready tab until they've missed the number of sessions set to populate the roster.
