What are the best ways to use Cheqdin to sign-in/out children?

Modified on Tue, 16 Nov 2021 at 01:31 PM

Cheqdin pulls out live registers for the day, hence if you don't see any children to sign in-out, make sure you have updated bookings for the children from the Centre settings--> Booking Details.

The Cheqdin app allows you to conveniently capture and record the children’s attendance using your tablet or mobile device. There are two ways you can roll out the digital sign-in/out system at your setting:

1. Kiosk Mode

This option is ideal if you prefer the parents to sign the children in and out at pick-up and drop-off. You can download the Cheqdin app on any device of your choice and place it at your reception to let the parents do the sign-in/out. Each parent can do the sign-in out for their children using the unique 4-digit PIN they would have received when they registered/made a booking with your centre. You can resend or change the PIN at any time.                                   

The sign-in outs done through the app will be automatically synced into your web portal in real-time, which means you can access and monitor the live daily registers from your Centre Dashboard. You can also download the digital attendance reports in pdf or excel formats. 


In case you are wondering, parents will not be able to sign in-out children from the Cheqdin app on their personal phones. They can only do it from a tablet/device that has been logged into by a staff member or admin of your school/centre.

2. Bulk Sign-In/Out

Otherwise known as group sign in-out, this option is ideal if you'd like your staff to do the sign-in/outs for the children, and is a preferred option for out of school clubs, creches and larger centres. You can also create custom tags if you prefer to filter out lists. For example, if you are an after school club, you can create three tags, say - St. Xaviers, Oxford and Benenden, If you have children attending these three different schools.
