So you've got classes and appointments on your schedule/calendar, that's great! But now you want to know, "Who's actually showing up?" Well, with our newly released check in feature, you can check off clients as they show up, and run a report to see how full your classes are! Next versions of check-in will let you see who exactly is showing up, and get more insight on your classes.
Setting up Your Services for Check-In
To start out with check-in, visit the 'Services' section, and click 'Edit' next to any service you'd like to enable check-in's for. At the bottom of the Services screen, you'll see a new option, called 'Enable Check-Ins'. Turn this slider on to enable check-ins for that class or appointment service.
Checking In Your Clients
After you've turned on check-in for a service, head to the schedule/calendar page, and choose a class already on the calendar. As you click the class, you'll open up the 'Session Profile'. As long as there are clients booked into the class, you'll see a new option next to their name, called "Check-In". You can check the box next to individual names, click 'all' to select all, or 'none', to deselect all clients.
Now that you've checked in clients, you'll want to know, how many clients are or aren't showing up for classes? Head to 'Reports' and click the 'Attendance Report'. On the right side of each class is now listed a column for 'No Shows'. This is a summary of how many clients for each class or appointment were not checked-in. To view the specific client names, you'll want to refer to your schedule/calendar for the specific class and see which names weren't checked, or, on the left side, the class date and time is clickable to view the Session Profile.
You're probably thinking, "That's great!", but wondering if you can view which specific clients didn't show up, communicate with them or click directly to the class. Our future enhancements for the check-in feature will include many of these features, we're bringing you these updates as fast as we can!
