Notes About Themes

  • Theme Preview: The theme preview is a sample of the elements chosen. It is not an exact replica of how your theme will appear spatially when using that theme in the Check-In Kiosk.
  • Image Size: If the image size does not match your screen resolution, the image will be stretched based on width with height cropped when using that theme in the Check-In Kiosk.
  • Font Size:
    • If using an iPad, tablet or smaller device, we recommend the Extra Small or Small font size.
    • Font size selection does not mean that all font used in the theme will be the exact same size. Keyboard, number pad and button fonts are defined to optimize space and usability without making other font (e.g. search instructions) overly large or small.
  • Check-In Kiosk: Themes only apply to the Check-In Kiosk (not the Admin Console or Classroom Manager). In Check-In Kiosk, all unattended screens are "themed" - Search, Results, & Preview, but attended forms - like Add/Edit Family are not "themed".
  • Uploading and Editing: Only themes originally created in the Check-In Admin Console can be uploaded for use and editing.
  • Pre-Loaded Themes: Check-In Suite comes with five pre-loaded themes that you can edit or copy.
  • Professional Services: You can engage Professional Services to recreate existing themes from Check-In 2 in the new Check-In Suite. Hourly rates apply.
Reminder: Themes are custom to your system (similar to custom views). Thus, emailing Support to troubleshoot issues with custom themes will require you to engage Professional Services. Hourly rates apply.
