If you have been using Check-in for your ministries, you would have noticed the new Check-in sections. The Legacy Kiosk received its last major update in 2014 and uses old technology that is no longer used elsewhere in UCare. With the arrival of the redesigned and streamlined check-in options, the Legacy kiosk is being faded out and will soon be removed.
Learn how to use the redesigned Check-in in the Using Check-in article.
For those familiar with the Legacy Kiosk, we are happy to report that the new Check-in Desk has all the same great features and some new bonus features, so you can effortlessly move your ministries over!
Three check-in options
The redesigned Check-in provides three options for checking in. You will see a link to the Legacy Kiosk that is still available; this will be phased out soon.
Attendance Roll is new and designed for kids' rooms or Youth ministries. It presents a list of people to mark off upon arrival and then a second tab to mark off people as they depart.
We have received feedback that the layout is much more user-friendly for staff, volunteers, and families.
All a family's essential information is available in one place, and you can manage or edit any extra details you need from within one page as before.
Searching for families
Quickly find families by entering a partial first or last name, a complete phone number, or scanning an RFID key tag. Providing extra security, you can now press enter or tap Search to bring up all family members.
Protect private data with the "Fullscreen" button in the top right. Now you can step away from a check-in station for a moment and know that people can't access private data without entering the set PIN code.
When Checking out, you only see a list of checked-in family members; for larger families, this avoids the need to scroll to see the "Check out" button.
Custom forms work seamlessly in the redesigned check-in, allowing you to replace the new household and new person forms with your custom forms, ensuring all the information you need is collected every time.
