Eventbrite adds major new check-in feature

Over the last few months, a ton of Eventbrite organizers have streamlined the tedious check-in process with Easy Entry, our hit iPhone app. And the app got even better last week with the launch of version 2.0, which includes a barcode scanner, support for repeating events, and much more—all for the low price of $0.00.

But what if you don’t use an iPhone or simply prefer to check in attendees from your laptop? Today, we’re excited to announce the launch of check-in for the main Eventbrite platform. Your events management platform just became your go-to tool on event day!

You can now access the new feature under the Day of Event tools at the bottom left of your event’s Manage page. Here’s an overview of what it can do:

  • The Check In Attendees feature in Eventbrite gives organizers the power to check people in at an event using a web browser with their Eventbrite account.
  • Quickly finds attendees by name or email. As users type in the search field, attendees matching the text are auto-suggested and the list of attendees is reduced to match the search query.
  • Syncs with the Eventbrite Easy Entry iPhone App. When an iphone user checks in people and syncs them with the server they will be listed as attending on the Check In Attendees page.
  • In the Charts and Reports section, you will see detailed reports on who came and who didn’t, and what time your guests arrived.

And here’s a glimpse of how it looks:

At Eventbrite, we’re all about one-stop shopping, and we see this as a major step in our efforts to build great new tools that extend the reach of our platform. Simply put: it’s going to make event day way easier. Enjoy!
