The check in preferences allow you to set the “check in timeframe”. You can set the number of minutes before a class, event, worship service starts you’d like to begin the check in process. You can also set the number of minutes before a class ends that you will no longer allow anyone to check into that class.
As an example, let’s say we have a Sunday school class that meets from 9:30 to 10:30, if we set our beginning time to 30 minutes before, we can begin checking kids in at 9:00 a.m. In this same example if we set the ending minutes to 15, we could check students into that class until 10:15. At 10:15 we would no longer see this class in our list of classes to check into.
On the Preferences screen you can also set the default association for visitors. This will be the association that is used in the ADD VISITOR screen.
You may also customize the text on the Options screen. Enter that text in the field for Welcome Screen Text.
