Family Check-In is designed to work with an iPad without installing any additional apps. The overall use and navigation of Check-In with an iPad is almost identical to a PC or Mac.
We recommend using iPad Check-In for Staff Check-In Stations and stations with printing disabled. Using an iPad with Self Stations is NOT recommended. This is due to the limitations of AirPrint in the Safari web browser.
To use an iPad for Check-In, you will need the following:
To print labels using an iPad, you should have an AirPrint-compatible label printer that is connected to your network. Click HERE for step-by-step instructions on our recommended label printers.
Once your printer is connected to your network, proceed to Check-In Settings and select "AirPrint" as the Printer Type.
iPad functionality is identical to Mac & PC in Check-In with the exception of printing labels. To print a label, do the following:
Select the individuals you wish to check in and select "Print Labels".
A new browser tab will open with your labels. Select the share button.
Next, select "Print". Your Options will immediately appear. Select "Print".
Select the label printer you wish to print from and select "Print".
Depending on your iPad settings, you may not see an option to print after selecting the share button. Navigate to the bottom of the menu and select "edit actions".
Proceed in adding the print option to your favorites at the top.

Yes. While only Apple products can use AirPrint, some label printers (like the Brother 820) can also connect to Windows PCs and print wirelessly over WiFi.
All Ipads running IOS 16 or higher are compatible with ChurchTrac.
iPads are compatible with any Label Printer that has the AirPrint capability. We officially support the Brother 810W and the Brother 820NWB Label Printers.
No, but we strongly recommend it as your connection could become unreliable or slow if it is shared with your entire church.
