Ability for clients to check in to classes via the mobile app
AdminJuan Alvarado (Admin, Trainerize) commented
I am aware of a feature on roadmap that will automatically check in a member into a class if they check in to the club within an hour of the class start time, but this could be problematic for some clubs that have high frequency of members that check in and don't actually go to the class. This will feed the system data that they checked in, but in reality they didn't show up to the class and just worked out. 2 suggestions from Quantum Fit Life to address this....
1. make this auto check in to class optional, as some clubs would rather the auto-check to class in not take place.
2. Give access to instructors to view the classes on their mobile ABC + app, and allow them to mark members as attended vs. not attended through the app instead of relying on DT for this. They feel this would give them more accurate info and it would be easier than having to jot down who attended and then go to a DT screen to log that info. This feature would ALSO help instructors manage members that check into club, and then a few minutes later decide to enroll in an upcoming class. Once they actually show up to class the instructor could mark them as attended.
**Some club penalize or charge members for true no-shows, so the auto-check in feature, even when it happens with a member at the club, puts them at risk of getting bad data and losing out on penalizing true no-shows.
