Whether you use an iPad or a computer for your Check-In is a matter of preference. Many ministries prefer iPads due to their cost, portability, and easy-to-use touch screen.

Setting up an iPad to work with your label printer requires first configuring the printer with a computer. This ensures that the printer is connected to your network and that the correct settings are saved. Click HERE for step-by-step instructions with our recommended label printers.
Once your printer is properly configured with your PC or Mac, proceed to the Check-In Settings and select "AirPrint" as the Printer Type.
We've put together an article showing the best ways to set up the check in stations, depending on your needs.
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, tap "Print". Your Options will immediately appear. Select "Print".
You can only use Mac computers in tandem with Ipads. PCs do NOT support Airprint.
All Ipads running IOS 13 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.
