Event planners can choose how attendees can check-in to their event using Eventsforce Kiosk. This may be by scanning a QR code, typing a last name, entering a check-in code, or a combination.
The default settings allow for paid and unpaid attendees to check-in on-site by scanning a QR code and will be marked as “Attended” in your event.
Check-in with QR code
Eventsforce recommends using a QR code as this is the quickest and most efficient method to check attendees in on-site. QR codes also allow for attendees to check-in in rapid succession.
Selecting “Yes” will display a “Scan QR code” area on your app with the camera enabled to scan a QR code.
Selecting “No” will remove the QR code scanning option and just allow one of the manual lookup modes to be used. If “No” is selected, you must choose an attendee lookup mode.
Attendee lookup mode
If allowed, attendees can also check in to your event using a check-in code sent to them by email, or by searching for their last name and selecting their registration. If you are allowing check-in by QR code, you have the option of choosing “Off” so QR code is the only method of check-in.
Note: If using “Check-in code” or “QR Code”, be sure to read more about how to add check-in items to an email.
Require full payment for check-in
The event manager can choose to allow “unpaid” and “partly paid” attendees to check-in on-site. This may be useful in situations where payment is collected after the event.
By selecting “No”, attendees can check-in on-site even if their registration is not fully “paid”.
By selecting “Yes”, only fully “paid” attendees can check-in on-site.
