Getting Started with Check-In Only events

The guide provides a walkthrough for Check-In Only events.

Create an account:
Visit our Check-In Only sign-up page to create an account. Your first event - up to 100 guests - is free. Each subsequent event is $75, and allows up to 3500 guests.

After creating an account, an email will be sent to verify your account and create a password.

Download the Guest List template
Use our Guest List template to prepare guest information for Event Farm. A list must be uploaded with a Ticket Type (typically “General Admission” or “GA”) before guests can be added individually. The Guest List cannot contain custom fields. Table numbers, hotel rooms, meal preferences, and other information is best-suited for the Check-In Notes field.

Create an event:
Select Add Event, choose Check-In Only, and Purchase More (if necessary). Populate all fields, and click Create. View the Create A New Event, Or Copy An Existing Event article for additional details.

Upload the Guest List
Log in to Event Farm and select your event > Event Info > Upload List > Choose File > Upload. You may also use Guest List > Invite/Add Guest > Invite Group > Choose File. With Invite/Add Guest, there may be options that mention sending invitations - no emails are sent for Check-In Only events.

The Guest List must be in .csv, .xls, or .xlsx format. The system will analyze the file before displaying your guest information.

Check that Event Farm has correctly identified field names, and if it has misidentified or does not recognize a field, use the dropdown menu to connect it to a field available in our system. Any guests marked in red will have a question mark to the left of their name - hover over the question mark to identify the issue. Select Check Changes (if applicable), and then Continue. The system may take several minutes to upload this information into your event.

View the Guest List and add additional guests
View the Guest List to verify the list has successfully uploaded. To view or edit a guest, select a guest > Guest Invitation to view their information. Select Remove to take the guest off the list. Select Invite/Add Guest to add individual people to the event.

Download the Check-In or Green Plum app
Check-In 5.0 (iOS) offers a modern design, swipe-based gestures, and improved performance regardless of internet connectivity.

Green Plum 1.2 (Android) offers a similar experience to Check-In (iOS), with a new design and improved performance.

Check-In (Android) is the traditional, original check-in experience. It offers additional features not yet available in Green Plum.
