Check-in Function: What’s Changed?

Avatar Emily Higgins, 

If you’ve previously used our ‘Guestlist’ function, you may notice a couple of differences with how our new check-in function works. We’ve spent a lot of time designing a simpler, more streamlined user journey to make your overall experience much faster.

🖥️ So, what’s changed in the Dashboard?

Adding clarity to your form setup

A simpler interface; to add check-in to your form just click on the toggle, “Track attendance”. Then proceed to set up your form and import your list of invitees.

All data fields from your imported csv file must now be mapped to your form fields - or it’ll be discarded. This behaviour also means the old option to “Show data in app” is redundant, so you won’t see this

Export Attended Status with your event data

The new Attended Status is related to individual records, so it’ll be included with your dataset when you export it post-event.


📱And in-App, what’s changed there?

A concise, streamlined user experience

The new check-in functionality contains fewer steps, fewer screens and fewer options. Search, check-in, done.

Check-in revolves around search

To check-in a person to your event, start typing name or email - then select from the imported list. If they don’t appear here, you can add them as a new walk-in.

Now you’ll only see records for those who you’ve checked-in to your event. This means that if you haven’t checked-in anyone, then you’re not going to see an entire list of invitees (which is good news for data protection!).


Skip un-required fields

If there are un-required fields in your form, you can skip these questions by tapping ‘Save & Close’.


Edit records live at your event

The ability to now edit your imported records in-app means that you can improve the accuracy of your records and make changes as required.
