Check-Ins

UB ACM requires everyone who attends our events to check in. As a University at Buffalo student organization, we are required to collect the UBIT ID of students who attend our events. For our club members' convenience, we developed a sophisticated check-in system that allows members to effortlessly check in to our events.

Why do I need to check in?

You need to check in in order to be included in the official club membership count. This number is important to the club because it is reported to the two University at Buffalo entities we're housed under - the Student Association and the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences. Additionally, in order to be able to run for an elected position and vote in club elections, you must have checked in to at least three club events in the academic year.

How can I check in?

Step 1

Visit any channel on our Slack workspace. If you can't pick one, #general is a good pick.


Step 2

Type in the command

/checkin
followed by the event code provided at the event.


Step 3

Send the command and you should see a success message if you entered it correctly. If otherwise, double check the event code with someone!
