There are two ways to set up your check-in stations: with someone to assist the person with check-in or self check-in. Below are the instructions on how to set up self check-in stations and assisted check-in stations. Once you've set up your stations, you'll be ready to check people in.

Assisted Check-in Stations

Assisted (or manned) check-in stations should be run by staff or church leaders who are trained on how to set up check-in stations for each use. After setting up each assisted check-in station, you can start checking in people.

 

 To set up an assisted check-in station
  1.  Open and log in to ACS People Suite.
  2. Under Manage Records, click the Involvement tab.
  3. In the drop-down list, select Check In/Out and click Go.
  4. In the Select Printer list, select the printer that the check-in station uses to print badges. Depending on your settings, you can also select what type of badges to automatically print during check-in.
  5. Under Select Posting Date, select the date to record for attendance markings.
  6. Select either Templates or Sessions. Depending on your settings, sessions may or may not be available.
  7. Select the templates or sessions that people check in to at this station. You can select up to 10 sessions per check-in station, and each station can have different templates and sessions selected.

    Useful Information

    You must select either one template or one or more sessions at each check-in station.
    You cannot select templates and sessions at one check-in station and you cannot select more than one template per check-in station.

  8. If you selected multiple sessions and want to print combined sessions badges, select Print combined session badges.
  9. When finished, click OK. You are ready to to start checking people in.

Self Check-in Stations

Along with assisted check-in stations, you can set up self (or unmanned) check-in stations. While self check-in stations are intended for members to use by themselves, you still need to have trained staff and/or volunteers to set up the check-in stations for each use.
