Tired of taking class attendance? Let’s have your customers do it instead! Today a new feature is live that allows you to set up an iPad or laptop as a check-in station. Existing, regular users can use it to quickly sign-in for class. Think of this as your digital equivalent of the paper sign-in sheet!
For the nitty-gritty details read on!
Here’s how to use the new customer self-checkin feature in Punchpass. First you create a class. To launch the customer self check-in process click the bright green button.
That will bring up this screen - a simple, clean version of the attendance screen with no navigation or distractions. Customers scroll through the list or use the search box to find their name. They then click/touch their name….
and then get a confirmation to make sure they are indeed checking in the right person. All they need to do at this point is click Attend Class.
That’s it! The screen says thank you, asks them to see the instructor if they have questions, and is ready for the next customer.
To exit the self check-in screen you click the grey ‘Exit’ button in the upper right. Once you have finished the class you can click on the ‘regular’ attendance screen to see who you need to follow up with regarding passes.
Please let us know what you think - this is version 1.0 and we would love feedback! This feature is going to be part of our Studio plan, but will also be available as an add-on for Solo users who don’t need/want all the Studio features. But for the next few weeks it will be free for everyone to try out and see if they would like it.
