Transition Plan

Below is a suggested approach for a smooth and successful transition from the legacy Check-In 2 and stand-alone Classroom Manager to the new Check-In Suite! Feel free to modify as needed for your church.

Remember: Whatever transition approach you decide to take, you are required to make the transition. Check-In 2 and stand-alone Classroom Manager will no longer be supported and your system's Check In 2 (/checkin2) and Classroom Manager (/classroommananger) URLs will be disabled (specific dates TBD). We strongly recommend making the switch sooner rather than later to take advantage of the countless enhancements!
Need help? Change can be hard. At any time, don't hesitate to send any issues or questions to Support! To reduce the stress level of making the transition, ask Support about how to leverage Coaching.
