Event Attendee Lists 

There are a number of ways of running your events and each association has different techniques that work for them and their members. With so many new and useful features out there that aid event management it’s hard to know which ones will work for you which you can really benefit from. A useful feature that has been proven to aid and improve the event management process for staff is the ‘Event Attendee List’.

Attendee lists allows staff to view at any time throughout the event ticketing process exactly how many tickets have been purchased along with the full list of attendee names. The list also highlights the payment status of each attendee and you can sort based on the payment status for Having Trouble Managing Event Attendee Lists and Selling Tickets Online? example: 

  • Payment pending
  • Payment received and completed
  • Payment failed
  • Payment denied
  • Payment refunded
  • Payment cancelled

This is great for staff to know exactly who has completed payment and who has received a cancelled or other status allowing staff to follow up on anyone who is having trouble registering. Once the ticket sales are closed or even better the event is a sell-out staff can then download the attendee list to a spreadsheet.

Say goodbye to manual input of data including; attendee’s details and other errors that can be asociated with manual data input.

Online Ticket Purchasing

There is also the time spent in manually processing each order as well as performing the following steps of uploading data to a spreadsheet and the tasks are sometimes never ending!  

Online ticket purchasing could reduce your frustrations through members having the ability to register for events online and perform payments quickly and easily. Staff can be on top of member actives all the time in regards to setting seating limits, early bird tickets and closing dates. Staff are able to avoid overselling or any last minute ticket sales.
