Is there a way to generate a message after an attendee is checked in?

Hi there,

Not currently, or at least we don’t have anything within core that does it out of the box so it would require custom development.

I’m guessing you would also like a custom message type for this so that you’re not just triggering pone of the default messages?

Correct, we’d like to trigger a custom message type for check in.

Ok, so you’ll need custom development to add a message type for this. The latest version of the Event Espresso 4 (4.10.9.p) has actions fired when a user is checked/out:


Those could be used to ‘trigger’ messages but you’ll need the help of a developer to add that message type if you are not comfortable trigging the message yourself.

Thank you Tony. I’m a developer, so I’d be comfortable adding this message type. Any tips or code you’d recommend that I look at?

I’d start by checking out some of the documentation for messages here:–Messages-System

Then view how one of our add-ons registers a message type through the EE_Register_Addon API, for example HERE

Then view how the message itself is set up HERE

Then, how that message is triggered HERE

Extremely helpful, thank you very much Tony!
