Wish List

The PowerChurch Check In system is an add-on product that works along side PowerChurch Plus to provide you an affordable and easy to use Check In system.

Wish List

Postby MTZMichigan » Thu Feb 22, 2018 6:49 pm

We have been using Power Church for well over 15 years, as well as using Check In since it’s inception. We have a very large congregation, so we have pushed the limits of the product in various ways and your support staff has always exhibited exemplary knowledge and professionalism. For this we want to say thank you.

In the course of using the Check In module, we have run into several issues that I will post to the Check In forum as well. We would like to request the following enhancements:

1) From a manned check in station, while in the Update an Existing Family window, from the second screen you can see the respective parents and the list of children below. We would like to have a means to expand or at least see the number of children that can be listed expanded. Presently, only 6 names can be entered.

If a large family brings friends, as a policy we list them with the family for ICE (in case of emergency) purposes. We thought about making the friend a new individual family, however they often do not have family information, so we basically only have the child’s name for the family record.

Possibly another panel can be opened with a ‘ADD MORE’ button that can allow more children to be added.

Of course, we can use Power Church Plus to add the any child beyond the 6 line limitation, however that kind of defeats the purpose of having Check In.

2) Along with the above consideration, we are actively preparing emergency exit plans for all our children’s activities. In lieu of this, we print a Check Out list for every activity during our services. These are handed to the leaders/teachers in order to account for all the children in their respective classes.

Would it be possible to have the ability to list phone numbers on this report? This would be a great aid if we need to contact the parent in an emergency that took us outside the building where we would not have access to Power Church.

Thank you so much for the consideration.
