    This is helpful.  One thing I've seen that I think would be a great add-on to this feature:


    An allowed and a disallowed pick up list.  This is helpful for allowing one family to allow adults from another family to pick up their children (say who are headed to the second family's house after service or who carpooled to Youth ministry).  This can also be used to specify when older siblings are able to check out their brothers and sisters and when they're not.  The third use case is for ensuring there is no confusion with a broken family- if one parent is no longer allowed any custody, they can be marked as not eligible to pick up.  I've seen this implemented as follows:

    On clicking the checkbox next to the child's name to check them out, a window pops up with the list of people allowed to pick up the child, with their pictures from the database. The check-out assistant clicks the picture or name of the person picking up and the system records the name of the individual picking up the child along with the timestamp.

    I'm not sure how easy or difficult this would be to integrate with the current check-in functionality, but I think it would be a great feature to solve a few of those cases above.  Thanks for writing some great software!

    is it possible to require a name for someone to check a child out?  In other words, is there a way that we can record who it was that checked the child out?

    Hi Jeff! Working in kids and student ministry, I can see the benefit in having this as an option or requirement. While it does time stamp the date and time the child was checked out, unfortunately, at this time that is not a current feature within Breeze to require a name.I wish I had better news! Know that your feedback is really helpful and lets us know what's most important to our churches as we create our next development roadmap.

    I am looking for the same option as Jeff (above). Our regulations require that we have a name of the check out person, so it is frustrating that this is not an option with Breeze. Just thought I'd share that feedback too.

    I also echo everyone's sentiment. We came from Servant Keeper which had this provision and we have made this part of our policy.  In addition, it would be very helpful to have a CheckOut Report that listed each child that was checked out, what time, and by whom that we could have for historical purposes.
