Settings in Events

Each event, folder, and location can have settings of their own. These settings control who can check in, what labels will print, and any noted options people need to choose.

Some settings, like labels, are carried over from the highest tier, starting from the Event. Under the Event can be a Folder and then a Location or even just a Location. But the Event is the first tier.

 

Event Settings

You can get to the Event Settings from the gear in the upper right or by choosing the Event tier from the Labels & Locations tab.

  1. If you want every location for this event to print out labels, add them here.
  2. Choose for your event to happen once or recur every week. If the event recurs every week, all of the times and locations will carry over automatically from week to week.
  3. The Services Integration allows scheduled people to check in as Volunteers, and their check-in will show in both Check-Ins and Services.
  4. If you require a background check for your Volunteers, check this box to enable that feature.

Folder Settings

You can get to the Folder Settings by choosing the folder from the Labels & Locations tab.

  1. Add a Security Label and/or a Name Label to your folder. Each tier can have their own labels and can add or delete the labels from that tier only.
  2. Options are shown when someone checks in and are printed on the label when checked. Keep them short and not too personal, allowing volunteers to know important details.
    You can choose to add a label to an option as well.

Location Settings

You can get to the Location Settings by choosing the location from the Labels & Locations tab.

  1. If you set up filters, only attendees that fit within the parameters will be able to check in at a Self Station. Volunteers at Manned Stations can override these parameters.
  2. Add a Security Label and/or a Name Label to your location. Each tier can have their own labels and can add or delete the labels from that tier only.
  3. Options are shown when someone checks in and are printed on the label when checked. Keep them short and not too personal, allowing volunteers to know important details.
    You can choose to add a label to an option as well.
  4. If you require a background check for your Volunteers, check this box to enable that feature. This feature will bee unavailable to check if it's already been checked from the Event Settings.
  5. If you'd like to temporarily not allow check-ins for this location, close the location. You can open it by coming back to this page.
