===== Planning Center Headcounts: ======
Planning Center Headcounts is an online mobile application that works with Planning Center Check-Ins to help keep track of any type of attendance, without needing to track specific individuals. Choose an existing event and a headcount type and start keeping track of your people. You can track them by entering the final number, or use the live counting tool. You won't need to write down your totals manually when you're done, since saving will instantly update your headcount total in Planning Center Check-Ins. Multiple people can even track headcounts on two different devices at the same time. Taking attendance is made simpler, more accessible, and your data is instantly saved to your account & can be included in your attendance reports.
• Set each headcount to have it’s own Capacity Limit
• Once you’re close to the limit, Headcounts will turn yellow and alert you with vibrating. Once you hit the limit, it’ll turn red and vibrate.
• The counter page now reflects the total number of headcounts across all devices
New in 1.1.1
• Performance improvements and bug fixes

Love the app
We are a tiny church (average attendance is the 40s) and love this for tracking who is here. However, my iPhone is used to stream the service and iPad is used as a confidence monitor, so the girls are counting from the back where the Mac mini is. They are using the website, but it is really complicated to get to the right spot on the check-ins page. Wondering if it would be possible to have a simple “Headcounts” app available for the Mac mini as well?
Half way there
Good idea but it needs to connect to the check in app. So that when a child is checked in they show checked in and “floating” in the building. When the child makes it to the classroom, the leader can then account for the child by selecting their name as they enters.
Also, the total headcount needs to be split by service. If you have multiple services it’s more helpful and accurate to reflect headcount per room per service. This is an additional benefit of having headcount rosters being driven from Check-Ins.
Developer Response ,
Hi! Thanks for the review! Just to clear up a bit of misunderstanding, this app is not to check children in - the Check-Ins Station app is designed for that. This app is to count those who don't need to check in by name, so you have an overall count in the rooms you don't check kids and volunteers into.
In addition, Headcount types are designed to be able to split up based on the times your admin has set up in Check-Ins. If one is missing, you'll need to contact them.
