F1 Check-in on the iPad
We just recently heard that someone had found an app that would allow them to run Fellowship One Check-in on their iPad! After hearing this, we couldn’t resist trying it out on our own to see how it worked, and that’s what we did. The overview of how this is happening is through a Remote Desktop Connection. This means that the iPad is acting as a viewer, showing you what is happening on your full PC. That means this process still requires a computer capable of running check-in, but now you can view/use it on your iPad! So, let’s walk through how we set it up and got it working!
1. Enable remote connections to your Windows Check-in PC
-Go to your Start button and right click on “Computer” and then click on Properties
-Make a note of your computer’s name, you’ll need this when we set up the iPad app
-Switch to the tab “Remote” and check off the box for “Allow connections from computers running any version of Remote Desktop (less secure)”
2. Download the WinAdmin iPad app
-Go on your iPadd app store and download the iPadd app named “WinAdmin” ($8.99 in the Apple App Store)
3. Set up the WinAdmin app
-Open the app on your iPad and press the “+” button
-Now fill out the information required. Fill in whatever title you want for “Server Title”, put the computer name that you found earlier in “Server Address” and then fill in “Username” and “Password” with the credentials you use to log into the computer you will be viewing through this app.
-Press “Connect” in the upper right hand corner and you should see your computer appear and can now run F1 check-in!
And this is what you end up with!
Although we wanted to share this idea with you, it’s not our app, so we won’t be able to provide any support around it, but feel free to leave a comment below and someone may have an answer for you! But what we are even more excited about is the additional functionality we will be rolling out in our REST API over the next few quarters and seeing what our Development Community makes specifically for Fellowship One! This is just the beginning of what we believe will take place within the next year!
