On The Day
This tutorial gives some pointers on what you should prepare for on and before the day of your event. It includes how to check people in, how to give access to event staff, and preparing a printed guest list.
Checking in ticket holders
Ticket holders will arrive at your event with one of the following:
What you will accept is up to you however you will need to check in the ticket holder and there are three ways to do this:
1. Ticket Scanning
Using the camera on your smart phone or tablet you can scan the QR code that the ticket confirmation email contains.
You will need to download the app to do this: iphone/ipad, android
Note: You can also use a standard QR Code reader application however it will be a little slower as it is accessing via the web.
2. Select by Lookup
By visiting gomobileevents.com on your phone/tablet you can check in ticket holders. This is especially useful if the ticket holder doesnt have the QR code for their ticket.
To quickly select a ticket holder start typing their name in the search window, when their name appears: press it.
The ticket holder may have bought multiple tickets, you can check in by selecting the names of the guests you are checking in
3. Printed Guest List
Sometimes it is easier to use a printed guest list (such as for night clubs). The pen and paper approach may be appropriate if you do not have access to a smart phone at the venue.
To print a guest list: select "Export" from the setup page and then choose the guest list
A csv file will be downloaded (you need to do this on your pc/mac) which can be opened from Microsoft Excel and then printed.
