USING A TOUCH SCREEN MONITOR
With School Check IN
Touch Screen Monitor – Assemble and install the monitor per the manufacturer's instructions. Inside the box, you
will find a power cord, USB cable and two video cables. Connect the USB cable and only ONE (1) video cable to
your computer. Most computers will use the standard VGA video cable. The second video cable is a High-Def cable
and few computers have a video card that accommodates this cable. Connect all cables per the manufacturer’s
instructions. Touch Screen monitors also must be calibrated and again follow the manufacturer’s calibration
instructions.
School Check IN – From The School Check IN Main Menu,
please go to: Admin | Settings | Administration |
Check the Use Touch Screen box.
Click the Main Menu button and the touch screen is now
ready for use with School Check IN.
NOTE: The Touch Screen is intended only for use for
checking in and out. A onscreen keyboard will appear when
required. For all Admin and Office functions a keyboard and
mouse will be needed.
There is a slight learning curve on learning how to touch the
monitor. From our experience, we’ve found a crisp touch
with the tip of your finger or finger nail works best. Most
users pick up the technique very quickly, but using the drop
down "Pick Lists" and how to scroll down may take some
practice.
DUAL MONITORS -- To use a Touch Screen Monitor and a second
monitor, your School Check IN computer must be capable of supporting
two monitors (primary and secondary). Most laptops can do this. A
Desktop may require that you purchase a dual video card. This will
require that you remove the single video card and replace it with a dual
video card.
Windows – Windows needs to be configured to support dual monitors.
There are many instructions on the web. Try Googling “Installing Dual
Monitors”. There are several sites that offer excellent video instructions.
Windows will require that you set preferences on which monitor will be
Monitor #1 and which will be Monitor #2. To access these preferences,
right click on the desktop and go to Display
The settings will vary based upon which version of Windows you are
using.
Selecting which monitor to use as #1, and #2 and if you wish to “extend”
your desktop on to the second monitor or run different applications on
each monitor is a “trial and error” process. Not all video cards behave the
same and have the same features. You can “drag” an open application
from one monitor to the other.
We have tested this many times with the Elo Touch Screen Monitor and
have found that extending the desktop, so that School Check IN is
working on both monitors works quite well.

NOTE: Instructions for Windows Vista and Windows 7
may vary from the XP instructions listed below.
1. While running the dual monitors in Extended
Mode, start School Check In.
2. Go to Windows Control Panel.
3. Click on Display.
4. Go to Settings.
5. Click on the extended monitor (e.g. 1 or 2).
6. Deselect "Extend my Windows desktop onto
this monitor" and click apply.
7. Click on the monitor (#1 or #2) that you wish to
use to use for other applications.
8. Select "Extend my Windows desktop onto this
monitor" and click apply.
9. The extended monitor is now usable for other
applications. School Check IN will run on one
monitor and your other applications will run on
the other monitor.
Should these instructions NOT work for you, then you will
need to Google other possible solutions, as we will not be
able to help you resolve this. This dual screen information is
provided as is.
School Check IN was designed to work with a single
monitor, or a single touch screen monitor. School Check IN
“may” work in a dual monitor setting, but is not tested to do
so.
Here you will need to click on the drop down
pick list to select the monitor.
