Check-In Attendees

How to check-in attendees using several methods

With atEvent’s attendee check-in feature you can pre-load lists of attendees to your event. Then once the event begins you can check-in attendees as they visit your booth. If your event is configured to Check-In attendees you will be able to view the option for Check-In on your home screen. The check-in feature on the app has several methods for adding attendees. 

This article is divided into the following sections: 

  • Getting Started: The Home Screen
  • Check-In Attendees: Screen Features
  • Check-In Attendees: Standard Check-In
