The event check-in software, Teal Pass, is no longer being used by Campus Ministry for easy check-ins to The Gathering chapel.
The ticketing software, a Nashville startup, was introduced at the beginning of the fall semester and suffered a few hiccups. Now it’s being discarded in favor of the original scanning method.
“Until a system and a program is tested and in place, we are going back to the old system,” campus minister Cyrus Eaton said. Lipscomb University was one of the early adopters of the technology.
“Ultimately it’s a great idea but it’s not ready,” Eaton added. Some students took advantage of the software to check in to chapel without actually attending. For now, Campus Ministry will send extra chapel scanners to The Gathering to help students leave chapel quickly and safely.
Be sure to bring your student I.D. to chapel in order to receive credit. If you haven’t done so already, go ahead and delete Teal Pass from your smartphone.
