Additional settings to note: 

  • If a Group is selected while add/editing a new family member through the Check-in Suite application, the Group Role assigned will be the Group Role defined in that Group's Group Type record.
Note: There is no longer a Configuration Setting for Search Instructions because of internationalization. If this value needs to be changed, it can be done via the Kiosk Theme.
Most applications reset and reload new settings after 24 hours, so don't be surprised if your Configuration Setting changes don't take effect immediately.
