  • Mobile Phone Check-in

    Last year I told you about our problem of trying to check-in 1750+ kids (http://codersforchrist.com/cs/blogs/nick/archive/2011/07/25/VBS-Check_2D00_in-Process-Improvement.aspx) at roughly the same time to avoid the long line that growing as our Vacation Bible School program grows each year.  I hinted that the solution might be to ...

  • VBS Check-in Process Improvement

    This year we had a little more than 1750+ kids use the automated check-in system for VBS across three of our campuses. Looking at this graph which shows the number of check-ins per minute, you can see check-in does not ramp up as sharply as we would want on Monday (red). (click for larger image) By Tuesday (blue) after some adjustments ...

  • Custom IE Error Page (DNSERROR.HTM)

    When you use a web based kiosk for your attendant-less check-in system, you should think about what's going to happen if your network fails you -- especially if you're using the 3G network.  This is what you'll see if the kiosk cannot reach the server:   That page is especially problematic if you don't have a keyboard ...

  • Remote, Mobile, 3G, Check-in

    When we launched our Queen Creek campus at the Queen Creek High School, we decided not to rely on the local network there.  Having learned our network reliability lessons when we ran a test church at Campo Verde High School the year before, we instead decided to put some trust into the 3G cellular network. So far it's been pretty ...

  • Our Virtual Check-in System

    For the past few weeks, I was beginning to think our new Arena check-in module was only going to be a virtual system -- not a real, working application.  You see, we had to postpone the full rollout a few weeks ago when our first full scale pilot had a printing meltdown.  After about 20-40 people had successfully checked ...

  • SharpForge

    One of the things I think we'll need to address within our Arena ChMS Community is the ability to have (manage) multiple developer custom projects.  While its possible to do this without a tool, its terribly inefficient and not recommended. SharpForge is an open source .NET 2.0 (C#) software project hosting web application that ...

  • Coming to Gilbert

    It's nothing short of insane around here these past few days.  About week ago we received the 'keys' for our new 155+ acre campus in Gilbert and we've been trying to get everything ready for our soft opening this weekend.  There are so many teams doing tons of work but here are some of the IT related ...

  • Arena Check-In (response)

    First the good news.  After meeting with the Arena team, I can now say it looks like we'll be able to move off of our custom developed "Student" check-in system without any issues.  It's a no-brainer.  The Arena Check-In system works very similar to ours.  We can even customize the screens to look like our ...

  • Arena Check-In or CCCEV Check-In

    One of the many Arena tasks I have on my plate includes examining how we might use Arena’s built in “check-in” capabilities for our two self-serve, multi-campus environments (Children’s and Students).  Since there is no Arena documentation (as of yet) describing how check-in might work within the parameters of our ...

  • Zebra Label Printers - Driver Problems

    [ImageAttachment] Our check-in system has been working so quietly over the past 10 months that I forgot about it. I just got off the phone with a friend who was experiencing some issues with their Zebra printers and realized that I never wrote about how we fixed our issues. The short story is: we threw out the Zebra ...
