Check-In Users

Each database should have a user role named Checkin. This is the only role that is needed in order to log into TouchPoint Check-In. This is true for both the PC version as well as the mobile versions - iPad or Android.

We recommend that you create a people record to use exclusively for logging into Check-In. Once you create the people record create a user account and select only the Checkin role.


Checkin is the only role that you can assign to a user without having to also assign the role Access. Checkin has a special use case.

Check-In User Records

If you have stations for children and for students, create people records named Child Check-In and Student Check-In in the same family. Create User Accounts for each one with Usernames of Child and Student accordingly. Set Passwords and assign only the role Checkin. All of your children’s Check-In stations would log on using Child, student Check-In stations would log on using Student.

The reason we recommend this type of set up is so you can give the username and password to a volunteer who can open your Check-In kiosks, but who cannot use those same credentials to log in to the normal application and have access to all of the people records in the database.
