Printing registers and badges for manual child check-in
ChurchSuite has an amazing children's check-in system available to you through ChurchSuite Connect (use the Quick Links on your account dashboard summary page). However, you can also produce printed registers and run a manual child check-in process if you wish. In this article we'll show you how to print children's group registers and name badges for your children ahead of time; ready to use for your next group meeting.
Go to "Children" > "Groups". For each group, click the option cog drop-down menu on the right-hand side. Select "Print register".
On the next screen a PDF report is previewed for the group selected. The register includes the names of all Children who are assigned as members of that group in the Children module. Space is also provided for visitor children to be added at the end of the member children. Note that the Date that is suggested is the next due date for the Gathering. This can be changed, and the printed register will reflect the changed date (click Generate after changing the date).
You can also filter your register by a Tag and optionally show the "Medical Short" field on the register. Note also that the register can be sorted by child's last name (default) or first name. Click Generate to apply your filter settings and create the PDF for printing.
You can now print the PDF register to your printer.
Hovering your mouse over the PDF report will display the PDF preview options, allowing you to optionally download your PDF if you wish.
If you have further group registers to print, you can do so from the same screen; simply selecting each group from the drop-down Group selector in turn, and clicking Generate.
Printing name badges
As with printing, registers, go to "Children" > "Groups", and then for each group, click the cog-wheels drop-down menu to see a list of options.
You can now "Print report" to print your badges (you can also download the badges as a PDF if you wish). As with printing group registers, you can filter your badges report by a Tag and optionally show the "Medical Short" field on the badges.
If you have further group name badges to print, you can do so from the same screen; simply selecting each group from the drop-down box and clicking Generate. After printing, use the back arrow in your browser (or 'back' button in the ChurchSuite app) to return to the Groups list.
