This gives you the ability to Check out all event members from the event


This allows you to change the Current Status and Event Visibility

Event Status

The event status relates to what stage your event cycle is in

In the Planning and Complete status, only members of your organization can see your event. Active status means it is open to the public and your wider event team can now start joining - Find out more on Event Status.

Recommendation: Activate your event BEFORE you send the invite email to your team, otherwise your team won't be able to access your event.

Event Visibility

The event visibility relates to who can access your event.

  • Invitation Only - our highest security event. The members need to belong to the organization AND be invited in to join your event.

  • Staff only - the members need to belong to your organization to be able to access the event.

  • Anyone - open to members of the public with a QR code, this can be your volunteers, suppliers, contractors, vendors, etc.

  • Recommendation - Select Anyone BEFORE you send the invite email to your team, this allows a quick onboarding process without them getting stuck at the 'Check-In' stage.

Check in

This page is important to highlight safety instructions, environmental observations and reminders for staff to send Blerts to the organizational team.

Check In & Check Out allows you to automatically prompt your crew to check-in and out when they enter or leave the Event Geo radius
