Add Check-Ins to a Past Session

Created on:
Updated on:

If you need to add attendance after an event is over, you can add people from the Check-Ins tab of an event.

Check out this clip from Planning Center University.

From the Check-Ins tab on the event, click Add check-ins to add multiple people to the event.

Tip

Make sure you're on the right date by using the arrows or choosing a date from the calendar.

Choose the location, time, and kind of attendee, and then type their name in the box.

Notice

Any warning messages you might have seen on a station will show underneath each person, but you can override these warnings.

If you type a name of a person not in your database, you can check them in as a visitor. If you want them to be added to your database, you'll need to add them before checking them in.

Once you've added all the people to this list, select Check In, and the people will be checked in for that event.

Event Does Not Exist

If you are moving from a different database or the event you want to add attendance for does not yet exist, create an event in Check-Ins to capture that past attendance.

When creating your event, you will need to create one future event time, even if the event is only for past dates. Choose the date of the nearest upcoming day of the week that your event occurred. The current date will be shown in red on the date picker.

If your event was on Sundays, choose the date of the next upcoming Sunday and include the times of that event.

Date Does Not Exist

You can add past dates to an event by adding a new session. From the Settings, click Add past sessions.

If you want to add multiple sessions that repeat weekly, check the box to add all the weeks up to the current session.

Caution

Times do not default to your event time; make sure they're exactly correct before you Submit.
