Event Check in Eligibility

Navigating event check-ins with precision is crucial for any church, and Breeze ChMS offers the tools to customize this process effectively. Whether you're exploring how do I link a tag to an event or setting specific eligibility criteria for attendees, this guide provides clear instructions to enhance your event management. Learn how to ensure smooth and efficient check-in procedures by controlling who appears on the eligibility list, from infants to adults, for any event scenario.

 

Oftentimes churches will want to control who shows up in the list of eligible people to be checked into a certain event. If you're checking infants into the nursery, for example, you may not want senior citizens showing up on the same list. Breeze allows you to restrict who shows up on the list.

Options

Everyone Everyone in your database will show up on the check in list. This is the default behavior.
Specific Tags Only people within specific tags will show up on the list. This option allows you to link the event with any number of tags.   
Form Respondents People who have filled out a certain form will show up on the check in list. Ideal for a registration form to check those people in when they show up to the event they registered for.2
No One No one will show up on the check in list. This is ideal if you only want to keep track of a total headcount rather than specific names.
1 When creating these tags, you may want to bulk assign people based on certain criteria to a tag or tags so you don't need to add each person individually. See Bulk Assign Tags for more information.
2Form respondents must be associated with a person to be eligible for an event. See Forms and People for more details.
Note: In order to add people to a tag when adding individuals to Breeze from the Check in page, the Event eligibility must be set up to Specific Tags.
