You can use a bar code scanner or a keyboard to check students, parents, staff, and other people in and out. This is a simple and efficient way to track the arrivals and departures of students and staff to and from your school. Often, these logged times are used for attendance tracking, billing purposes, and security.
Once individuals check in or out, the information is saved and can be accessed later. When necessary, check in and check out information can be viewed and edited as well as printed on reports.
- On the Home screen, click Check In/Out. If the Add Checkout Time dialog box displays, read the Useful Information message below this procedure.
- Using the scanner, scan your bar code; or, using the keyboard, enter your ID#.
- If you are using a Parent ID, select a child or children to check in.
- If you used the keyboard to enter your ID#, press Enter on the keyboard.
The Add Check Out Time dialog box displays if there are individuals who haven't checked out from a prior date. Follow the instructions at the top of the dialog box. If you select Remember Settings, the check out times you entered will be saved in the Auto Check Out section of the program. After you make your selections, click OK.
