BADGES are a unique series/tags assigned to a particular user at the time of registration which helps to identify the user at the event and track the user.
The benefits of activating badges via our system are as follows:
Badges help you to keep an account of the number of visitors
It helps the visitors to have a hassle-free experience at the event as they can avoid the on-site registration process. In addition, it will help you as well in the registration process by avoiding the multiple registrations of the user.
Badges help you in increasing more interest.
Maximize conversion and minimize drop-offs with immediate badge assigning.
Organizers can do the required settings from the Dashboard itself, for user registration and setting up badges/ ticket IDs/ pins for them to sign in.
Kindly follow the below steps in order to enable badges:
Step 1: Badge Setup
Enabling this feature will make the user's entry to the event restricted to a validated passcode. Therefore, users only with valid passcode will be allowed to enter. The passcode can be badge id, ticket id, or common pin code (as applicable).
You will have two options to restrict event access
1. Manually Assign Badges: With this option, you can assign badges with a unique id to selected attendees (manually through the lead section)
2. Enable auto Badging: You may enable this toggle option in case you want automated assigning of a unique badge-id to users on successful RSVP registration. This enables faster onsite check-ins & tracking.
Step 2: Badges can further be assigned to users in two ways:
a. Auto: With this option, the badges will be assigned automatically to the users once they sign in.
b. Custom Series: This option will assign badges to the selected number of users in the pre-defined series. For instance, you selected series as abc1,abc2,abc3...abc10. In this case, the system will assign these badges to the first 10 users and then will stop assigning for the rest of the users.
Note: You will still be able to capture leads in the form of RSVP irrespective of whether this functionality has been enabled or disabled. Go to RSVP settings for more details.
Step 3: Enable Common Pin Code
This common Pin is for users who could not be assigned badges so they can use this pin to log in, instead.
