With a simple click or touch, this feature helps event planners keep track of who attended their event.
Check-In Attendees from a Computer
If you have a dedicated computer (or computers) with internet access set up at a check-in desk at your event, you can log into your ePly account and bring up either the Primary Registrants, All Registrants, or Check-In report in the Reports section to check attendees into the event. When you've brought up the appropriate list, you can check the box in the Check-In Status column of the report to check-in your registrants. If you use the Check-In report, it will tell you who checked-in the registrant and when they were checked-in.
The first time you check the box in the Check-In status column, the registrant’s Attended status column is changed from Did Not Attend to Attended. Each time you check or uncheck the box in the Check-In Status column, a timestamp is recorded. A running log can be found at the top of the registrant’s details page under Check-in Activity.
