March updates come with improvements to Check-in

This month we’ve been making some improvements to the Check-in area to help improve security and also functionality.


We’ve made the following improvements

  • Added the ability to hide Security Code from Self Check-in. This can be done via Check-in settings.
  • Security Code can be included when adding a new family via the Check-in screen.
  • Parent and Children labels can now be printed when you choose to check-in both adults and children.
  • Added a setting to limit how many labels can be printed per person via the Self Check-in area.
  • Print Station page will now auto-refresh to help rectify printer jams.
  • Added timeout to Self Check-in page so if a user does not move their mouse or press a key on the keyboard after 15 seconds, the Self Check-in home page will be loaded.
  • Error messages on Self Check-in page will now timeout.

We’ve also added the ability to preview scheduled emails and SMS from the scheduled list, duplicate Service Types and the ability to add the year of a Giving Statement to the template to assist with numbering reports. For example you could get the statement number as YEAR-GIVINGNUMBER (e.g: 2015-12345678).

We’re continuing to see great progress with Version 2 and will be releasing more information about our BETA testing program in the coming months. V2 will see further improvements to the Check-in Area including a Quick Check-in system and also an onscreen QWERTY keyboard.

Full release notes of 1.11 can be found on this page.

Hope you have a great week!

Drag and drop teams onto different services, and approve or decline individual conflicts in the one place.
