    I am guessing this method does NOT work if you need to use check in for said event. I'd love to have that verified. Otherwise, great information. Thanks!

    Hey @mleichty - that's correct, it will not work if you want to use that form for event check in.  You can create a specific tag for each of the children listed in the form (which would need some manual adding), and then use that for your check in.

    Can this be used to connect the person to a specific event on the calendar so they can be checked in when they arrive? I do I understand correctly from the above response that it does not?

    So if someone used the registration form would they be able to be found in the "People" section?

    If so, if they input family members (like a new family registration), would they be connected to that main person?

    We have a very similar situation for registering multiple people in a family to an event. We have many paid events and classes in our church throughout the year. Families with children have to fill up the registration forms every time redundantly since the information is in the Breeze database. We are hoping we could simplify the registration (signup) process using Breeze.

    When parents go to an event, they will need to sign up their children for childcare and the youth program. The event registration fees, childcare fee, and youth program are all different prices plus pre-ordering lunches or dinner packages. on the admin side, we need to know the children's age and counts for selecting appropriate teachers.    

    Since Breeze can only connect one person in a form automatically. We are struggling how to collect info from the parents so we could collect payment and add other family members to the event. What is the best way to handle it with Breeze?

    Hi @fondachang!

    You are correct, that Breeze can only connect one person in a form. So depending on whose information you want/need to connect, would be who needs to fill out the form. To add other family members, to the event, you could create a specific tag for each of the children listed in the form (which would need some manual adding), and then use that for your check in so that they are displayed on the list for checkin for that event. I know that this may not be ideal, but I do hope this information is helpful. 

    Happy Breezing!

    I am trying to do this for our marriage class.  I want a husband and wife to be able to register on one form but I keep getting a message that I can only have on "name" on the form.  I followed the instructions like on the camper form renaming Spouse 1 and Spouse 2 and it it will not work.  I do not want each person to have to register.  Seems like a pain for couples to have to do that. I want their name to be able to be pulled into the breeze checkin.  Please, please help.

    Hey @kpitcock, You will need to use the "Name" field for one of the spouse name fields (This will be the person that the form will actually connect to/ update) then you will need to use a Text field for the second spouse name. 

    If you register multiple people on the form at one time, rather than individually, you will only be able to have one of their names (the one that filled in the Name field Box) at Check-In. 

    Please don't hesitate to call us, and we can see if we can come up with a workaround to help you accomplish what you are looking for.  We’re open 9am - 6pm (Eastern), Monday - Friday, (888.320.6030).

    I have created a multi-child registration form and an event. Prior to the event, I would like to sort the kids into classes (tags) and print name tags. In the form entries, their is an option to export as name tags but it only shows the parent's name. I can also only tag the parent. For the check-in process, the parent is checked in instead of the child. How do I make the children who are registered listed as entries? For these events, they are the primary clientele, not the parent.

    Great question! Forms are a great tool for registration, but there are some limitations and it's important to know exactly how to use them. Feel free to give us a call for more information!

    One of the primary things to remember is that you must use the child's name as the primary name for the form. Each form can only contain one name field, and that should belong to the primary registrant. If you would like to document Parent names, please use the text box for this functionality.

    Also, if your goal is to have each child that is registered be added to check in, then you will want to make a different registration for each child. In other words, multi child registration on one form will not give you the result of having each child eligible for check-in. You will want to have each child register on their own form. Even if there are multiple children in the same household, you would need to fill out a form for each one of them. We understand that this isn't the most "breezy" process, but this is the currently functionality. 

    Thanks for your patience with us as we continue to develop Breeze for your benefit!
