Initializing Text-to-Check-In in Churchteams after the Check-In View has been set up
- Once your Check-In View is set up, log in to Churchteams on a PC or Mac browser (not a tablet). Go to Check-in >Start Check-in.
- Select the desired Check-In View.
- Under Label Printing Options, select "Start a Printer station - Share printer with other devices" and enter a printer name. The printer name can be generic (e.g. XYZ) if you will not actually be printing any labels.
- Check the box labeled "Use for Text to Check-in."
- Click OK.
On the next page you will see an animated "waiting for labels to print" and at that point people can text the word CHECK or CHECKIN to your 10 digit number. They will get a link that will take them to a page where they can check-in their family.
An alternative to physically starting a check-in station for Text-to-Check-In, especially if you will not actually be printing the labels, is to set up an automatic check-in schedule.
