To begin using a mobile device for check-in, simply follow the steps below. Please note you will need an available check-in license (or the Campus Edition) in order to use an iPad/tablet for check-in. If you need to purchase an additional license, or need any additional help, please contact us.

If you are planning on running Express Check-In’s (allowing parents to check-in via their iPhone), see our Express Check-In Tutorial.

Mobile check-in FAQ’s are available here.

Step 1: Install the App

In the Apple App Store or Google Play Store, search for “KidCheck”, and proceed to download the app onto your tablet.

Step 2: Sign In and License the iPad/Tablet

In order to run check-in, the iPad/tablet will first need to be licensed.  If you need to purchase an additional license, please contact us.

Open the KidCheck app, and enter your KidCheck username and password to login.

Android

After logging in, select the “Check-In” section > select Licensing > select the blue circle with the plus sign > name your license, select your campuses and other options > select the blue circle with the diskette icon.

iOS

After logging in, tap on the “Check-in” section > tap Create  > tap License this Device, enter the requested information, and then tap the Save icon.

Step 3: Start Check-in

Now that your iPad/tablet is licensed, starting check-in is quick and easy. Under the Check-in section, tap on the template or program that you’d like to use for check-in. You’ll then be able to select which Dymo printer you’d like to use for printing labels.

In order for a Dymo LabelWriter printer to appear in your list of available printers for check-in, it needs to either be connected to a KidCheck PrintHub or original PrintHub, or be connected to a computer (either Mac or Windows based) that is on your network and has the KidCheck Client running in the background.  You are able to connect multiple Dymo printers to the same KidCheck PrintHub or computer.

Example Setup #1: a KidCheck PrintHub Express (with two printers attached) and two tablets

 

Example Setup #2: one computer (with two printers attached) and two tablets

Note: if you want parents to check-in using their iOS device, you’ll need to activate Express Check-in and configure a KidCheck PrintHub.
