Event App Overview

Event Overview - Check-in & Ticket Scanning Event AppSince our event app announcement back in February, our team has been busy building brand new event mobile apps for onsite check-in & ticket scanning. The new Event Espresso 4 event app allows you to transform your Android and/or Apple device into an onsite attendance management tool for events. Allowing event managers another option to manage check-ins at the door of their events.

Quickly check-in attendees and view information about your events and attendees. Built-in ticket scanning capabilities allow you to scan tickets (optional upgrade) at your classes, meetings, conventions, concerts, and everything in between. Event managers can also login to the website to view attendance records, generate an attendance list and export the list to a report in CSV format.

Benefits

Use the event app to check attendees in/out of events, view attendee/registration and event info. Additional benefits of using the Event Espresso 4 Event App at your event include:

  • No more messy attendee lists to deal with, just search for an attendee names and check them in from the app
  • Mobile Event App Registration OverviewSpeed up registrations at the door, by using your mobile device to scan attendees tickets (optional upgrade), instead of using your laptop and barcode scanner
  • Integrates in real-time with the attendee list in Event Espresso, within your own website
  • Easily view attendee/registration info, such as:
    • Attendee list per datetime
    • Ticket purchases
    • Payment status
    • Check-in status
  • Allows for multiple check-in “stations”. Eg, use multiple Android/iPhone devices to log into to the same attendee list so employees can check-in attendees using multiple different devices
  • Device-to-device QR Code scanning helps to keep your events “Green” by providing an environmentally friendly ticketing solution
  • Makes your organization efficient and innovative with easy access to event info, such as:
    • Event list
    • Venue info

Events Overview

The event app design team took a some extra time to give the event overview a few nice design updates this time around. Including the use of featured images, event descriptions, better datetime display, and selecting among multiple datetimes.

Attendee Overview

The registration overview screen allows entry staff check-in/out the attendees from within the event app. If you allow your attendees to leave, then re-enter later, you can easily check the attendee out, then check them back in from the attendee overview screen. This also updates the check-in/out records in your website database.

Check-in & Ticket Scanning

Ticket scanning allows entry staff to easily scan tickets at the door (EE4 Ticketing add-on required). When a ticket is scanned, a response is sent back to your event website checking that attendee into the event.

Mobile App Mockups

About the Event Espresso 4 Mobile Apps

Here’s what you can expect from the new mobile apps:

  • Feature parity with Event Espresso 3 mobile apps
    For the initial release, we are only working on feature parity with the Event Espresso 3 version of the mobile apps. Such as viewing events, registrations, and checking-in/out attendees from the mobile apps.
  • The apps will be free
    We care about your ticketing needs and want to make your lives better. You’ll be able to do check-in/out attendees, and those who use the Ticketing add-on will be able to scan tickets too.

Timeline?
The plan right now is to get the apps built, tested and release ASAP. If everything goes as planned, we can expect the development to take around 10 to 12 weeks.

What functions will the apps perform?
Event Espresso users will be able to check-in/out attendees and scan tickets using mobile devices, such as iPhones, iPads, and Android phones and tablets.

What about ____ feature?
We have a few ideas for features such as point-of-sale capabilities, etc, but these will have to come at a later date.

The team we’ve brought on to build the mobile apps has a lot of experience with building event related apps and we’re looking forward to working with them to add more great features in the future.
