Checked in by Grandparents

Postby pcu62061 » Tue Jan 03, 2017 11:24 am

We have many grandparents checking in/out their grandchildren. Since they are not in the "family", it takes a bit longer to check them in/out. Currently, they have to go to check-in non-family member. Is there a quicker way to check in/out with grandparents? Can we add them to the family somehow without altering other powerchurch information?

Thanks in advance.

Well, you can check-in a child by using the Child's Name instead of looking up the Grandparent's name. This is often done with children whose parents are divorced. The children's personal profiles are under the parent who has day-to-day custody, but when the other parent brings in the child, they look up the child's name for check-in.

You can add the Grandparent's names in the notes section of the child's personal profile so there's a confirmation method.

The only other way to do this would be to add additional personal profiles for the grandparents to the family record, but that can cause other issues.
