Check In Suite - December 2018

Don't miss the new Security Summary Label option to reduce excess labels for large families! 


  • *New* Manually reset the cache after changes to Events, Groups, Configuration Settings etc. for the change to take effect immediately. 
  • Fixed an issue where Machine Name was not retained between browser sessions. It will now be retained until cache is cleared. 

Check In Kiosk

Search Results
  • *New* Added a 3-tier field "Search Results" to Event Record which dictates both enabling/disabling and showing/hiding Guests.
  • Deprecated the field "Prohibit Guests". (This field is still used by Check-In 2.)
  • Enhanced search results to display all Households to which a Participant belongs. Their Primary Household will be displayed first, followed by Other Households
  • Enhanced Households to sort by Household Position, then Age (if known) and lastly Alphabetically. 
  • Enhanced Attended Mode to facilitate check-in for the duration of the Event. Unattended Mode continues to close check-in at the time specified by the Event field "Late Check-in Period". 
  • Fixed an issue where Cancelled Event Participants were able to check themselves in. 
  • Fixed an issue where Events with no Registrants and no associated Groups were not included in search results. 
  • Fixed an issue where periods were not accepted in the search bar prohibiting a search for names such as St. James. 
  • Fixed an issue where up/down navigation buttons in search results were unresponsive on a touch-screen device preventing a user from scrolling through all family members. 
  • Fixed an issue where the on-screen keyboard did not support lower case. It now supports both lower and upper case with lower being the default. 
  • Fixed an issue where some family members were listed as Guests for Events where they should have been Expected. A Household will now display up to 100 rows for Expected Participants. 
Important! The changes above have a significant impact on the configuration of new Events. Events already created in your system have been migrated from the Prohibit Guest configuration you chose, to the most closely related Search Results option. Learn more here
  • Enhanced the Print Settings dialog to better clarify and organize available options. 
  • Enhanced the Kiosk Settings dialog to remove the option "Always show family in search results". This is now dictated by the new Event field "Search Results" (see above). 
  • Fixed an issue where launching Checkin via an Auto URL would sometimes place the on-screen keyboard over or above the search bar. 
  • Fixed an issue where the Auto URL was expiring nightly under some circumstances.
  • Fixed an issue where mis-configured AutoLoginPassword and AutoLoginUsername Configuration Settings displayed an error message referencing deprecated Configuration Settings Code CHECKIN. The error message now indicates the correct Configuration Settings Code, CIM.
Important! As a result of this update, you will be required to update your Auto URL.
