You can customize your check-in screen with images you create, or use one of our pre-designed seasonal or ministry themes. Custom images display to the left side of the Express Check In/Out screens, and are handy for advertising upcoming events or displaying the church’s logo and vision. You can use your choice of image editing software as long as you save them to the correct sizes and file types.

To resize your check-in image, you must first determine the recommend image size for your monitor.

After you resize the image, you can import it into Checkpoint. Then, depending on how your Checkpoint sessions and templates are set up, you may want to use the image for specific sessions and templates, (or all of them).

  • If some sessions already have an image on file, setting a global image will not affect those sessions. 
  • Global image changes only affect sessions with no designated image on file. 
  • Setting an image for specific sessions or templates also removes any previously assigned global images.
