Participant Details

As of August 31, 2019, we will officially no longer support either Check-In 2 or (standalone) Classroom Manager. They have both been replaced by Check In Suite! If you haven't made the transition yet, we have created a sample transition plan here to help. If you have any questions, need any help making the transition, or feel something is preventing you from making the transition, please don't hesitate to contact Support.

When a user selects an individual, many actions are available to them. These actions depend in part on the individual's current check-in status (if they are checked in, marked present, etc.).

Mark Present

The user can tap this button to confirm that a child is physically present in the classroom. It is available if the participant is checked-in but not present, or not checked-in. If the child was not previously checked in, this button performs both actions (checking the participant into the event and marking them present).

When the classroom attendant clicks Mark Present, they are able to specify an event and a group to place the child into. If an event was selected on the main dashboard, that event is pre-selected as the default event.

Check Out

When a parent/guardian comes to pick up the child, this button lets the church record that the child is no longer under their watch.

Update Photo

The user can take a photo of the selected participant, updating their information in MinistryPlatform. This feature requires a web browser that supports Flash and a camera to be present on the computer (iOS not supported).


Update the selected participant's allergy information.


The notes field is available after a participant has been checked into an event. The note can be found on the person's Event Participant record in MinistryPlatform.

Call Parents

This button allows the classroom attendant to notify someone that a child needs to be picked up. The type of notification depends on the church's configuration. It may text a specific church-designated phone number, or it may perform other actions. Please note: Unless you have programmed other actions, this feature is not fully functional yet and is not connected to your Twilio account. Thus, at this time, we recommend you hide this button using the Configuration Setting outlined here.
