    Is there a way to restrict members so that they can only see themselves/ only search for themselves, and only check themselves in?

    There is not currently a way to make it so that they could not search for any one else's name in the system.  We use the "search mode" as the best recommendation for this because they would have to intentionally search for another person's name to check that person in which isn't something people would typically do.

    Ok I see what the confusion is here is my question that I have a problem With. I can walk up to the checkin station press the gear switch the system over to List and get the full name and picture of all the children of the children’s ministry. How do I stop that...

    Hey there - you're right, they could do that.  It's not easy enough to do this by accident, so it would have to be done intentionally.  If that is a concern of yours, our recommendation would be to have a check-in representative standing there.  That's very helpful for new families needing to know what to do, or to change the name tag roll, or answer any questions that come up.

    Thanks for the additional follow-up. I have been emailing with one of your other support people and he articulated that having users do "self check-in" is not in Breeze's recommened best-practices. This was helpful for me to realize that the check-in system is intended to be monitored by an attendant. That being said, I urge Breeze to consider providing a self-check in option. This would make it far more competitive against other ChMS's.

    I agree with nat you need to reconsider your stance on this as I can setup a free rockrms checkin system that is way better than yours in many ways but to name a few here we go. One self checkin, two direct print labels from iPad, three ability for attended checking including adding guest to famialys without the guest showing as a family member, four Famialy pre registration, five faster checkin times by remembering what the famialy did last time. My average checkin time for a new visitor for rock is 2 min or less if they did not do preregistration if they did less than 1min. The church I go to now using this system is taking 5min for an average day and they normally give up and just have a stack of pre checkin kids sitting next to the computer.

    I am excited that our church is going to use Child Check In for the first time this Sunday. For our set up, we have two tables, one is located near our upper elementary classes and one is in the nursery. We have a laptop for each station and someone to man each table. Under our Sunday morning event, I set the check in for the certain tags that our kids are in and have discovered when I was testing check in out that when you look at the attendance, it shows a breakdown for each tag (ours are in their specific grade levels) of how many kids attended.

    We have paper cards for first-time visitors to fill out and then we will put that information into the database so when they come back the following week, they will be able to type their names into the computer and check their child(ren) in that way. We hope that by having someone at the tables, it will be a good experience to making our visitors (and members too) feel welcomed and secure with dropping their kids off. So, we will see how this goes on Sunday. I love that Breeze is going to make checking the kids in simpler and more secure.
