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.
