|Purpose & Scope|
|How can I Practice with Check-in?|
|We suggest you practice a few days before your activity. This will allow you to become comfortable with the process well before your first participants appear. Before you can practice, you must create a working practice environment. Your activity schedules are configured for the dates and times of your activity and this is most likely not when you want to be training your volunteers!|
To set up a practice time period, we suggest you edit one of your activity schedules and add a recurrence. You will do this in portal.FellowshipOne.com. Use the following steps to help you set up a practice recurrence.
Note: This procedure will work for Check-in in Assisted mode. Self Check-in mode strictly obeys the start and end times configured for the activity schedule. If you want to practice with Self Check-in mode, you will need to create a schedule with the correct time period for your volunteer training. Ensure that your practice recurrence date range does not coincide with the real activity schedule. End the schedule a few days prior to the activity occurrence. Practicing with this schedule will record attendance.
