Parents can check in their children from their own phones! Why is this great?
Fast: No more lines waiting to sign in on paper or a tablet. And parents can check in/out multiple kids at one time.
Flexible: Any parents who forgot their phone or don't have a smartphone can easily still use a school device.
Secure: Much more secure than a physical signature. Parents must be on-site and will only match if they are approved guardians.
Approved: We developed Quick Scan with licensing in mind.
Detail: If you wish, parents can submit notes and drop off info from their phones.
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
How does it work? Each location is assigned a unique QR Image. Parents will select Check-In/Out from their app and quickly scan the image. They will then be prompted for their Check-In Code to complete the in/out.
Will check-in codes still be used? Yes. Parents will be asked to input their personal 4-digit check-in code as the last step of checking in/out.
Where is the image displayed? You can display your unique image on a laptop, tablet, or phone. Just look for the Quick Scan option at the bottom of the check-in section of the app. If you don't see it, ensure a) You have the latest version of brightwheel, and b) Quick Scan is enabled for your school.
Can I print off the code? Yes! Here are further details on how to do this.
Can I turn this feature on/off? Yes. Any administrator can update the check-in settings at any time. Navigate to the School Profile from the Administrator Home screen on the app or under School Settings on the web.
How does the image work? We generate a personalized image just for your location. If you have multiple locations, you'll get one image per location. This is unique to you. In order for there to be a match, a verified parent/guardian from your school must scan the image from their device.
What if I want to change my check-in image? In your Quick Scan settings, you have the option to have a new image automatically generated for you. If you enable this option, a new image will be created every 3 hours. Note: We do not recommend this option if you are going to be printing your QR Image.
What if a parent forgets or doesn’t have a smartphone? No problem, parents will always be able to switch over to traditional check-in.
See our article on Check-in Settings for more info about all check-in options.
