Import guests in EVENTsight is made as easy as possible. If you just created your first event and go to the “Visitors” tab, you will see that you don’t have any visitors yet, and that you can add a visitor or import visitors. If you want to add them manually, click on “Add Attendee”, and a popup window will appear where you can enter the visitor’s details
To import guests, just click on the “Import” button and it will bring you to the import screen, where you will be asked to select a file to import.
At this moment EVENTsight allows you to import XLS, XLSX or CSV files. EVENTsight will automatically read out all the headers of your import files, and guide you to match them with the correct fields in EVENTsight. If you make a mistake, click on the blue arrow to break the link.
When you assign a column to the barcode, EVENTsight will use the values of the column for the generation of the barcodes. Important is that EVENTsight won’t allow duplicate barcodes within 1 event, when you assign a column to the barcode field, EVENTsight will check for duplicates in that column. See also multiple file imports.
When all your fields are correctly mapped, click Import. You will be brought back to the main screen, and a red indicator “Importing…” will tell you that we are busy working on your import. You can verify this as you will see the total number of subscriptions go up.
