In EVENTsight, it is also possible to add an attendee manually, one by one. This is a good option when you only have to add a limited number of persons.
To add manually: go to the ‘Attendees’ section click ‘Add attendee’ > fill out attendee details, custom data, workshops and extra persons > click ‘Save & continue’

- Comments Off on How to create a SMS campaign
A SMS campaign can be used to send a certain text to group of people participating at the event. For example, it can be used to send participants of a workshop that the workshop will start in 10 minutes or to communicate last-minute changes.
To setup the SMS campaign:
- Name the campaign
- Select ‘SMS’
- Pick your country code in the drop-down menu
- Choose one of the two phone numbers
The text will be sent to the phone number that is filled out in the ‘Mobile phone’ field.
Now you can add the content by clicking ‘edit’. You can personalize the content as well as the layout.
If you’d rather update your attendees by sending an email, see the topic ‘How to create an email campaign‘
Go to the home screen in registration mode and select the event you want to register for. Click ‘Search’ to search for attendees in the list. The top of the screen shows a search bar, in which you can enter the attendee’s data to look up your guest. The following data can be used in your search:
- first name
- last name
- company name
- email address
- birth date
- custom data
It is not necessary to fill out the full data of the attendee you’re trying to find. Even with a few letters, a limited list of attendees will show up, out of which you can pick the one you are searching for. To show the full attendees list, click ‘Show all’. Scroll to find your attendee.
If you click the blue ‘Check in’ button, it will turn green and the person will be registered.
When there are guests that didn’t subscribe to the event, but are allowed to enter the venue, it is possible to add an extra attendee onsite. This is only possible if you activate ‘Allow the creation of new guests at the entrance of the event’ in the Setup. When this setting is deactivated, the add button on the home screen of the registration mode is greyed out.
If the setting is activated:
click ‘Add’ > this will guide you to an empty attendee screen > define all the fields you want under attendee info, custom data, workshops and extra persons > click ‘Register & Continue’.
When you add an attendee onsite, that person will automatically be registered as present, unlike when you add an attendee in the backoffice.
On the homepage of the event, click ‘Scan’ and you will be able to scan barcodes. You can scan barcodes using a wired scanner, a handscanner or the camera scanner on an Ipad. You can also manually type the numbers in the search field.
When you scan a barcode, a text will show up in green ‘Registered’ together with the name and details of the attendee.
If a warning message shows up, something went wrong:
- Barcode is invalid or unknown
- Double registration: the same barcode was already scanned

In registration mode you can check attendees in and out for an event by scanning, searching or adding an attendee. It is not possible to change the setup of the event, unless you return to the backoffice. Make sure the event you want to register for is active. If there is no event active, it is not possible to activate registration mode.
To set the event active: go to the ‘Setup’ section > click ‘Set as live’.
Activate registration mode: click ‘Registration mode’ in the top right corner > click ‘Switch to registration mode’.
When you switch to registration mode, you will see the event overview where you can select the event you want to register for. To register for an event, make sure the event is ‘set as live’ in the backoffice.
If you selected an event and you want to change the event, you click the menu icon top right and click ‘Change event’. You will be brought back to the event overview.
If you select the event you want to register for, you will see the home screen of that event. Here you can search, scan or add attendees, see statistics, manage the event or log out.
When you imported a large number of guests, it can be difficult to find a specific attendee. With the search bar, you can easily find attendees:
- By name
- By company
- By email address
- By birth date
- By custom data
With the advanced filter you can specify on which field you want to search. It is also possible to search in the custom fields you defined during the setup. This makes it possible to narrow down the search to one specific person.
When you want to stop using the advanced filter or you want to search for a different attendee, you can clear all fields by clicking ‘Clear’.

The second column of icons in the attendee list is for onsite management purposes.
