Note: I know this recipe is pretty hacky, but it works for what I needed. I will update this if I ever find a better solution. Please comment below if you have any better ideas.


We had some concerns about having to change all of the selected check-in areas every time the selected Check-In Configuration is changed on the Rock unattended check-in Admin page, so I set out to figure out how to automate that process.

The script in this recipe will automatically select all of the check-in areas for the current Check-In Configuration and deselect and hide all of the Additional Areas whenever the Kiosk Device or Check-In Configuration fields are changed.

How To

  1. Go to Admin Tools > CMS Configuration > Pages and find the check-in Admin page.


  2. Edit the block properties for the Administration block in the Main zone.


  3. Under Advanced Settings, add this script block to the Pre-HTML box:

    <script type="text/javascript">
            //make sure the correct areas are checked to start with
            //handle changes to any of the fields
                //delay the action to give the DOM time to update
                //increase the delay if results aren't consistent
                setTimeout(SelectAreas, 300);
            //make sure only areas associated with the current check-in config are checked
            //TODO: find a less hack-ish solution
            function SelectAreas()
                //check the areas for the current config
                $('.rock-check-box-list').first().find('.checkbox input').attr('checked', 'checked');
                //uncheck and hide all "additional areas" checkboxes
                    .find('.checkbox input')

Go to your check-in site and try it out. If it's working correctly, all of the checkboxes under Check-In Area(s) should be checked and the Additional Check-In Areas section should be hidden.

I have tested this as well as I could, but please let me know if you come across any issues or if you come up with a less hacky solution.

Also, if anyone can give me a example of why I would ever want to choose a certain check-in configuration, but then choose areas from a different check-in configuration, I'd really be interested to find out why the Additional Areas section is even available.
