To add the Attendees module to your guide, just click on 'Add a new a feature" in the top-left corner of the guide-building screen. Find and add the Attendees menu item. That's it! This feature is designed as a user opt-in social feature and cannot be pre-loaded by a Guidebuilder. If you are looking to add a pre-filled attendee list please see the Can I upload my Attendees list? section.
Note: You may want to rename this menu item to "Check-in and Connect" or some other action-oriented wording to encourage your users to network with one another!
First, make sure you're logged in! To log in, tap the icon in the top-right corner of the screen. Log in or sign up for an account.
Manage Your Profile
After you have logged in, tap on the icon in the top-right corner of the screen.
Tap the gear icon near the top-left to edit your profile.
You can choose to add information here; we recommend adding some details so fellow users will reach out to you!
Connect with Users
Tap on the Attendees feature in the main menu. At the bottom of the screen, tap to check-in!
You will now be listed and visible to other Users.
Tap on a User's name to view their profile. At the bottom of the screen, tap to connect!
What can I do with my connections?
Once a person has accepted your invitation to connect, you will be able to view their profile and contact details. These connections will be stored and visible from your account (top-right corner of the screen) regardless of which app/guide you are accessing.
If you would like to add a directory of users into your guide, you can use the Custom List feature.
The Attendees / Check-in & Connect feature cannot be preloaded with any information, however. Users voluntarily log in and choose to check in. Your Users have control over the information they choose to provide in this feature.
Networking is an integral part of life, and adding the Attendees feature to your guide can greatly boost your guide's success. Want to learn more? We talked to experts to get their thoughts on the Psychology of Event Check-Ins and Boosting Event Engagement.
