Prior to trying sign in-out, we recommend you complete 'Centre Settings' and make sure there are children booked in on the bookings calendar.

In this article, we'll take you through steps on how to sign in children using the Cheqdin App. 

Step 1: Before you try to sign in the child(ren), please make sure that your bookings are updated for the child(ren) in centre settings > 'booking details' section. You will be able to sign in the child(ren) only if there are bookings for the day. Note: If you do not have bookings for the day, you won't be able to sign in the child(ren). This is because live daily registers are auto-populated by Cheqdin from your booking details.  

There are two ways in which the bookings details section can be updated:
1) Regular/Offline bookings: This refers to a contract or regular sessions which are manually updated by the centre. 
2) Adhoc/Online Bookings: This refers to all online bookings that are submitted by parents using your online bookings link (URL). It's important to note that all online bookings are auto-approved based on your occupancy calendar and auto-synced to your booking details and children's daily registers. Additionally, the centre can also manually add in bookings that are Ad Hoc.

Hence, the booking details section contains all types of bookings added to a Child's profile.

Step 2: In your Cheqdin App, click on the 'Centre Login' option. 

You can use the same logins credentials that you use to log in to the Cheqdin web portal.

Step 3: With Cheqdin, you have the choice to make parents do the sign in-out or have staff perform sign in-out on behalf of the centre.

Option 1: Select the 'Bulk Sign In-Out' option to quickly sign in-out all the children in one go.

Option 2: If you prefer parents to perform the sign in-out using their designated pin numbers, you can opt for a Kiosk mode (You can load the Cheqdin App on a tablet or smartphone and display it at the reception of your centre so that parents can simply enter their PIN number and use the Children Sign in Out option and digitally sign it during pick up or drop off).

Tip: The PIN number to sign in-out children can be found in 'Centre settings' > 'Member Access Control'.

Step 4: To continue Bulk Signing in-out children, enter your PIN Number in the Bulk Sign in-out selection screen and you will be able to see the full list of children booked in for the day. You can then digitally sign the bulk action and records will be updated accordingly.
