Event managers have the ability to add a “Profile Picture” file upload type question to events which enable attendees to upload a profile picture as part of the registration. 

The profile picture can be added to badges, word exports, or downloaded when editing the registration. Event managers can use the following process to export profile pictures as files to their computer. 

Note: The same process can be used for other “file upload” type questions which require upload of an image (example: Company logo).

Creating a word export for profile pictures

In order to export profile pictures as files, the first step is to create a word export to include the profile picture in the event manager’s preferred size. Event managers can enforce all images to export with a maximum dimension size, or allow full size images to be exported.

Take the steps below to create a word export for profile pictures:

  1. Go to Setup > Badges and Documents
  2. Click “Add” to create a new word export
  3. Use the ‘Reportable personal tags’ dropdown list and select “Upload Picture: Profile Picture”
  4. (Optional) Replace the “maxWidth” and “maxHeight” text with the maximum size in pixels for the picture (example: “{{PICTURE:PROFILE PICTURE:300:300}} to limit height and width to 300px”)
  5. Click “Save”

Note: If no maximum width and height are entered, the profile picture will export in its original size.

Exporting profile pictures as files

Once attendees have registered and uploaded files as profile pictures, an event manager can export profile pictures as files by taking the following steps:

  1. Go to Setup > Badges and Documents
  2. Click to “Select” the word export to run
  3. Add filters as needed on the ‘Search’ page
  4. Click “Search”
  5. Select all people found and click “Proceed” to create a Word document
  6. Open the Word document and click "Save as..", then choose “Web page (.htm)”
  7. Within a web browser (such as Google Chrome), open the exported file (example: EFwordExport.htm) 
  8. Within the menu, click "Save page as..." and select: "Web page, complete"
  9. Locate the folder on your computer. Within the folder will be all the profile pictures as individual files

Note: The process of exporting profile pictures as files has been tested in Google Chrome and Internet Explorer.
