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