Creating a Check-In

Note: Via the website, you can only create a Check-In if you are logged in via a mobile device such as a smartphone or tablet. 

To create a Check-In via the website on a mobile device:

  1. From the main navigation menu, select Journal.
  2. Tap the blue plus icon. In the Add Item menu, select Check-In.

You will be immediately prompted to select a location. The location you select must be within 500 ft of your current physical location. Use the map to move the cursor to the location you wish to tag or tap Search to search for the address. Tap the location you wish to tag from the list below the map to select it. 
  4. Once you're ready, tap Select This Location to make your selection.

  7. If you wish to include notes with your entry, click within the field below where it says 'Start typing here...'. If you have ToneMeter™ activated for your account, look to the bottom-right corner of your screen to review its analysis of the content you have written in your Check-In. If the ToneMeter™ is colored red, tap the icon to view what has been flagged in your note.
  8. You can also attach one or multiple photos and MyFiles to your entry. Tap the paper clip icon to attach images from your phone's camera roll or file storage drive.
