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 the location you're adding the label and select Manage Labels.

From the Manage Labels page, select Add Label.

The Default Labels cannot be edited or deleted.

Choose Name Label Information

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

  1. Enter a name for the label. These label names are only shown on the Admin side.
  2. The Checked-In By feature will print the name and cell phone number of the parent/guardian who checked them in, which is chosen at check in.
  3. Consecutive Numbers is for numeric-only paging systems. The numbers start at 1 everyday at midnight in your timezone. If you use this feature, create a new Security Label, which will have some other consecutive number options.
  4. If you’re not using security labels, like for a Choir or Youth Group, you can turn off printing the security code on the Name Label.

Select Submit to create the label.

Choose Security Label Information

A Security Label will print the date and security number as well as the barcode. Choose what you'd like it to print with the consecutive number.

  1. Enter a name for the label. These label names are only shown on the Admin side.
  2. Print only the number of the corresponding name label number.
  3. Print the number as well as the name of each person next to their number.
  4. Print the number as well as the location that each person checked into.

Select Submit to add your new label.

Add Dymo Custom Labels

If you’re using Dymo label printers and want access to other options for your labels, create a label in the Dymo software then upload it to Check-Ins.

1. Download a Default Label

If you don't want to create a label from scratch, download our default name or security labels.

From the Manage Labels page, select the type of label you'd like to create.

Select Download label to open the Dymo software and use the label as an example.

3. Upload to Labels

From the Manage Labels page, select Add Label.

Select the custom Dymo printer label link.

Fill out the information about your Dymo label.

  1. Enter a name for the label. These will only show on the Admin side.
  2. Select the type of label you're uploading.
  3. Select Choose File to upload the label file you created and saved.
  4. If you're using a Dymo Twin Turbo, you can specify which side you want the label to print to.

Select Submit to add the label.

Some customizations may slow down printing. If printing is slow, try removing some of the properties from the label.

Continue adding labels by selecting Add Label or select an added label to edit or delete it.
