How To Check-Out With Receipt Texts
1. Visual Check-Out
You can use the guardian’s check-out receipt text to visually verify the security code to the same way as with a printed Guardian Receipt. The security code will match the child’s name badge security code as well as be listed in the Admin Console next to the child’s name.
2. Check-Out at Station
For improved record keeping and overall security you can scan the QR code in the guardian’s check-out receipt text. You can scan from a computer check-in/out station using the KidCheck 2D Barcode Scanner or from a tablet check-in/out station with the tablet’s built in camera.
