    Is there a means to modify the check-in to allow more than a binary result; yes or no.

    But instead to support, Yes for attendance or a L for Late; and maybe a C for cancelled.  Bottomline; can the checkin be customized for a list of values.  Prefer a column for each option; not a drop down

    Hi there!

    At this time, that is not a current feature within Breeze. We are working on a check in upgrade right now, among other necessary fixes. We are always on the lookout for the next great idea, so please don't hesitate to visit our feature request page.

    Thanks for your understanding and patience as we continue to try to make Breeze the easiest and most user-friendly database in the world! 

    Happy Breezing!

    Can we print name tags once they check in?

    And for nursery does it print a unique number for each child that checks in? One that can be put on the child and one for the parents to pick up the child?

    Hi Julie! Yes!

    If print name tags has been selected in the event settings for check-in, then as soon as you check in a child, the name tag will print out. You can customize the name tag to include a 3 digit or 4 digit code unique to the child who checks in and can include that on the parents tag as well. I have included several resources that will be most helpful!

    Is there a way to "inactivate" people or children who don't show up for a class for a couple of months so that the check-in list (tag) is cleaner and then reactive them if they show up again.  This would be helpful because deleting people from the tag will change the attendance numbers over time and also leave room for people to not be followed up on.  But instead if we could change them to "inactive", they could still be seen in a report and attendance numbers aren't messed up by deleting the person from the tag.  Does that make sense?

    Hi Jan!

    This does make perfect sense. However, at this time that is not a current feature within Breeze. I have provided two solutions that might be most helpful to you:

    One recommendation is to use the anonymous count to include them in the number for attendance records. You would then need to record their name and information separately in excel or a paper file. I know this would be a lot of manual work and not ideal. 

    Another option would be to add them in as a visitor, with name and information and then go back later and archive them. They will show up in the overall attendance number and their name will appear on the day they checked in, however, if archived they would not appear on future rosters or show up in the system.

    You can see from this screenshot I have archived Luther Anderson, he shows up on the day he was checked in on November 11 but not on the November 18 roster:

    I have also included a article on how to archive a person within the system:
    Archiving a Person or Restoring Archived People

    We sincerely appreciate your thoughtfulness and your efforts in explaining where Breeze has room to grow.

    Happy Breezing!

    Thank you Emily. I was aware of the anonymous method. But this is a feature that would be very helpful if added. Should I submit a feature request or would this (an inactive flag on tags) be something that is already planned?

    Thank you very much for your response.

    Hey Jan!

    This feature addition isn't on our current roadmap, but will continue to be revisited to be sure we target development in the right places.

    If helpful, you can always submit a feature request to us here at Breeze: https://www.breezechms.com/features

    Thanks again for sharing this with us!

    If I am checking people in to an event such as “Sunday school “and those classes are separated by tags… Is it possible to check in a “visitor” without adding them to a class tag(which repeats for future SS events), but they will still show up in our attendance report???

    Great question @christianedu! There is a way to check in a visitor and allow them to show up in an attendance report without adding them to a specific class tag, but it does involve creating a tag. You would need to create a tag for class visitors in tags and add this tag to the Check-In eligibility in the event settings. This will ensure that visitors can be recorded for attendance.
