7. Review the Reports 

Go Race Day > Race Day Check-In > Check-In App Summary


Benefits of using the Check-In App:

Dynamic Bib Assignment (less space for bibs, less waste of preassigned bibs that are never picked up, no paper lists)
Statistics on Packet Pickup attendance (use this data to show your Expo sponsors, schedule volunteers, adjust your packet pickup hours)
Use in collaboration with the Sign-Up App and never turn your online registration off until the race starts! (everything in one database, allow for more people to sign up!)
