Choose which types of information you'd like to show on your labels. If you use a Dymo Printer, you have access to more information to add to the label.

View Default Labels

There are two types of printed labels: Name and Security.

A Name Label will print for each check in.

Name Label
  1. Location
  2. Session date/time
  3. Location options checked
  4. Medical Notes field
  5. Checked In By information
  6. Security Code

For privacy, you could use codes for Medical Notes, especially in classrooms where children can read. Codes are also great to add multiple notes to the label since it is limited to 40 characters.

A Security Label will print for each household. Use this label to pick up your children.

Security Label

To add, edit, and create labels, go to a location, and then click Manage Labels.

From the Manage Labels page, click Add Label.

Name Label Information

Name, location, date, and notes will show on any name label you create; however, you can choose to remove some options from the labels.
