Onsite Attendee Check-in, Event Tickets and Barcodes

Jun 16, 2014    By: Mark Turner



TICKETS

UPDATE: be sure check out our post on fee-based tickets.

When you create a new event in your account a ticket for that event is created in the background. So, each time someone completes a registration on your registration form a personal ticket is created for them.

Here’s how it appears:

After completing a registration your registrant will land on the confirmation page where they may click the View and Print Your Ticket button. You can customize the information that appears above this button to suit your needs.

V6-Onsite1

Upon doing so they will be presented with their ticket for printing.

V6-Onsite2

If you do not want a ticket created for your attendees you can turn this feature off. To do this, head into your event’s edit menu and select Build/Design Your Form & Website > Event properties > Select the last item in the list ‘Enable/Disable Event Tickets’.

EW6-BC1

From here you will uncheck the ‘Enable/disable event tickets’ checkbox.

V6-Onsite4

You can check/uncheck this selection at anytime whether your event is in test mode or live.

BARCODES

In addition to the barcode that is created on the registrant’s ticket, you can also create one for the confirmation email. To see how this is done read How to Set-up Barcodes.

ONSITE ATTENDEE SCANNING

Now that your attendees have barcoded tickets you can use the Event Wizard® Attendee Scanner App to scan the barcodes when your attendees arrive at your event.

The attendee scanner app will scan the barcode on a screen (phone, tablet etc.) or paper print out then automatically update your attendance report in your event. This app can be used for multiple events in your account, and multiple devices can be scanning at the same time without data conflict.

The Event Wizard® Attendee Scanner App is available for all Apple iOS devices and Android and is free of charge. Download the Event Wizard® Attendee Scanner App now.

ATTENDANCE REPORT

To access your attendance report to see who has attended your event (been scanned in) or not attended (not scanned) click the reports icon in your account.

V6-TestForm3

Then select Attendance Report in the Reports & Tools dropdown list.

V6-Onsite5

Your list of registrants will appear in this report.

V6-Onsite6

Use the Show: dropdown list to show only those that attended your event or did not attend your event.

  • Use the two lists to segment your registrants and send targeted emails based on whether they attended or did not attend.
  • Running webinars, seminars or classes that go towards CE credits? The Attendance Report is the perfect way to track credits based on attendance.

How to Set-up Barcodes

Apr 8, 2014    By: Mark Turner



Setting up barcodes in your event is the same as setting up any other merge tag within your Event Wizard® edit menu (task list).

Use the Event Wizard® Attendee Scanner App with your attendee barcodes onsite at your event. When barcodes are scanned for each attendee your attendance report will update real-time in your reports.

HOW TO SET-UP BARCODES

There are two areas we recommend adding barcodes; the confirmation email and the confirmation page (thank-you page). In either instance, adding the barcode merge tag is the same. Let’s use the confirmation email in this example.

The first thing to do is head into the confirmation email edit screen in your task list. Once here, click your mouse inside the editor screen so the cursor is flashing. Then select the merge tag dropdown list labelled Insert System Merge Tag. 

EW-BC1

Then select 1D barcode and the barcode merge tag will be added to the email body.

EW-BC2

Click save and you’re done! Now, each time a registrant completes their registration and receives their confirmation email a unique barcode will be in their email.

BC3

Instruct your registrants to bring the email with them on their mobile phone or in a print out to be scanned at the door using the Event Wizard® Attendee Scanner App. Each time a barcode is scanned your attendance report will update that person in your reports as attended.

If you need assistance setting up barcodes feel free to contact us today.

Event Wizard® Mobile is Here!

Jul 25, 2012    By: Mark Turner



Last Thursday Event Wizard® Mobile was released for Apple, Android and Blackberry devices, making it a snap to manage your events onsite and on-the-go. Event Wizard® Mobile is free to use but you must have an Event Wizard® account to use it.

We had been thinking of a mobile app for quite sometime but knew it needed to be done right. The big question through the entire process was, what did the on-the-go Event Wizard® user need? Keeping this in mind ensured we built only the core functions that a user onsite and on-the-go needed and left out bloated features and functions that wouldn’t be used. As a result we made sure functions like checking in attendees and checking your registration counts were included. You can even submit a support ticket if you need assistance with your account when you’re not near a computer.

Head over here to get Event Wizard® Mobile on your smartphone or tablet.

Once installed open it up and enter your Event Wizard® login information. The next page is your home screen. From here click Manage Events to access your events.

At this point it will all be very familiar. Click on any of your events and off you go.

If you require any support assistance use the app’s interface to submit a ticket just like your regular account.

With Event Wizard® Mobile you can:

  • View, open and close your events
  • Search & view registrant details
  • Check-in your attendees
  • Resend registrant confirmation emails
  • Record registrant payments
  • View past invoices
  • Submit & manage support tickets
  • and more!

We hope you like the app and would love the hear any feedback you may have. In the meantime go take your event on the road, it can do that now!
