How to Create a Student Check-in Screen Shortcut (Chrome)
Many schools use a tablet for their Student check-In Screen. This allows students to check-in for attendance and encourages children to be responsible.
The major concern of school owners is a student getting into the backend of the system. Creating a shortcut to the Student Check-in Screen can remove this worry.
