Sell Tickets On Your Facebook Page & Timeline

VenueWize now lets you sell tickets on Facebook, directly from  your business Facebook Page or personal Facebook Timeline, by using our new Facebook Timeline app for events.  With one click the app creates a tab on your Facebook Page listing all of your upcoming events (created on VenueWize) with a ticketing, RSVP or guest list request page. When a guest buys a ticket, RSVPs or requests a guest list, our app automatically notifies his or her friends about your event in a non-intrusive way right on Facebook. The registrant also automatically receives an email confirming his or her attendance. After signing up for a few events, a Facebook Timeline box appears on the registrants profile listing all of the events they've registered for.

Guest List Management on Facebook Timeline

If you don’t have a Facebook Page, you can directly host the event on your personal Facebook Timeline with one click. After hosting a few events on your personal Facebook Page, a Facebook Timeline box will appear on your profile listing all of the events that you are hosting.

All of the Facebook registrants are then auto-compiled onto a guest list, accessed using the VenueWize event check-in app, ready to be checked-in at your event with iPads and iPhones. Of course, you can then check analytics to see exactly how many people Facebook brought to your event.

Check-in Attendees with iPads | Live Real-Time Syncing

VenueWize’s event manager app has released a new real-time live syncing system which is available in the newest version of the iPad on the iTunes App Store. The new syncing system keeps all of the door hosts checking guests in to the same event, updated in real-time with each others latest check-ins, live statistics and any guests which are added to the list last second.

The time interval that the data between door hosts is synced can be adjusted in the settings of the iPad or iPhone app, ranging from 30 minutes to real-time. If you have no Internet connectivity or lose Internet connectivity at your event, guests can still be checked-in, however check-ins done by on one iPad will not be viewable in real-time on other iPads. Once you regain Internet connectivity, all check-ins across all iPads and iPhones will automatically sync.

Event Check-in App Manages Guest Lists On Your iPad & iPhone with One Swipe

VenueWize’s event check-in app now has a much quicker way for event organizers and their door hosts to check in guests. “One Swipe" check-ins allows the door hosts and event managers to check-in guests by quickly swiping their finger across a guest’s name on the guest list manager screen in VenueWize’s iPad or iPhone app.

One-Swipe Check-Ins

We still allow you to check-in guests like before, by tapping a guest’s name, selecting the specific number of accompanying guests (for tracking and analytics purposes), then selecting check-in. However, we found that for fast paced events with a large quantity of attendees, tracking statistics about the number of accompanying guests’ gender is less important than the speed at which all guests are checked-in and enter the venue.

So, what happens if the guest in question has important notes created by the event manager that must be viewed by the door host and the One-Swipe check-in is used? In that situation, a small popup appears displaying the notes to the door host.

What about plus counts and analytics?

If a guest has a plus count, for example Alex + 5, and the One-Swipe check-in is used, then only one person is checked-in and that party becomes Alex + 4. In cases like this it is recommended that the normal way of checking-in guests be used, since then the door host can click the name, and specify how many people in Alex’s party have shown up.
Whenever the One-Swipe check-in is used, analytics are still gathered, however since the gender is not specified, a count of one guest is added under N/A for gender on your analytics dashboard.

The One-Swipe check-in will speed up guest check-ins and improve event management for events where speed is an important factor.
