Check-In: Supported Printers, Drivers, and Labels

Find a supported printer your organization is comfortable using that meets the price point and functionality needed to run Check-In well. Then, configure with the proper label type and drivers.

Warning: Check-In label printing will NOT work with Chomebooks (Chrome OS computers)

 

Supported Printers

  • Brother QL-700 / QL-710W / QL-720NW
  • Brother QL-800 / QL-810W / QL-820NWB (*Bluetooth on this model not supported by ChMS)
  • Dymo 450
  • GoDex DT4 and DT4x

 

Pro Tip: Brother Wireless Printers are recommended, particularly the QL-810W. Here's why:

  • ONLY the 810W or 820nwb will work with the iPad Check-In App (iOS). (An iPad only connects to a WiFi-enabled printer).
  • It includes a label cutter rather than perforated tear-away labels, which tend to get misaligned when pulled too hard.
  • The 810W costs less than the 820nwb. 

IMPORTANT NOTE: A requirement for Brother printers is the continuous length label roll - item number DK-2205

*(The labels included in the box are not DK-2205 when purchasing a new Brother Printer. The correct labels must be purchased separately).

Configure Check-in Settings in your ChMS database

Normally, iPad check-in (via the check-in app) does not require choosing a check-in station. If no check-in station is chosen, the user can check into any group that allows check-in. If a check-in station is selected, the iPad Check-in app will honor all Station settings (i.e., only allow members to check into groups they are a member of, restricting check-in to groups with a certain property, etc.) Additionally, it is advised that there be a Station for each mobile device, especially when using Android devices.

 

Check-In Software Downloads:

To use Check-In with Label-Printing, you can use one of the three check-in options below. (While all work well, we typically recommend one of the first two options for the easiest setup). 

  • Desktop Check-In App 
    • Best for Mac/Windows laptops, desktops, or Windows Tablets
  • iPad App
    • Requires a Brother Printer with Wireless capability (models 710W, 810W, 720WB, 820WB)
  • Browser-Based Check-In
    • Requires the latest version of Java
