Creating a Self Check-In Event is done in much the same way that you create any event on the calendar, by going to the Engage section of the MCR website. 


Members will use their Mobile App when they arrive to the location for self check-in. This can be done for checking in and checking out! Leaders will need to approve or deny the check-in before submitting attendance. 


To create a Self Check-In event: 


  1. Click the plus sign in the upper right corner to create a new event 
  2. Choose your template type for the event
  3. Insert details about your event 
    1. Make sure to include AM/PM for the start time or the system will not allow you to click create 
  4. You will need to click the box for "Self Check-In" which will bring up a map to set the self check-in area, use the search bar to enter the address or name of the building/area you want to pinpoint as where Members should be when they check in. 
    1. If you want Members to submit excuses if they cannot attend, be sure to click the "Submit Excuses" box 




 


To check-in, Members will go to the Mobile App to Check-In: 

n the app go to upcoming events and click on the name of the event and select "Self Checkin" 



                        


You will see a pop up screen that asks you to verify that you want to self-checkin. Click "yes" to checkin. 



When you are ready to checkout, you can either click the QR code icon in the upper right corner (which will bring you to all available events for checkin/checkout) or click the event name in upcoming events.



                                        


Press the "Self Checkout" button at the bottom of the event page.

 



Confirm your submissions by selecting "Yes"

 



Once you have checked out you will notice that the event indicates both the time and distance from the events designated location for both checkin and checkout.



The Distance/Time feature allows chapter leaders to verify checkin. The person who created the event is who sets the location, so any question about location should be directed to that person.
