The Funnel Events module comes with a handy check-in app to help manage attendance on the day of your event. By using the app, you'll be able to update the attendance within your event in real time.
To get started, you'll need to download the app from the app store by searching 'Funnel'. Once downloaded, use your regular Funnel login credentials to access the app.
You'll notice three modes within the app: QR code, parent, and admin.
The code for your event can be downloaded from within your event in Funnel, printed, and placed around different entry points of the school. It's also available to be scanned directly from the app. When the code is scanned by the parent, they'll be prompted to complete a form, where they can either check-in or register.
This mode offers a branded experience and is intended to be displayed on a mobile device, allowing parents to search for their pre-registered name or register their details as a walk-in.
This model is designed for staff and students who greet attendees and check them in. Admin users can search names in the global search functionality and be presented with possible matches. If the attendees didn't pre-register for the event, they can provide their details to be added in as a walk-in.
For extra security, there's a passcode set to restrict accidental movement between parent and admin modes. To move from parent mode to admin mode tap the settings cog until you're greeted with the passcode screen. Enter your passcode and you'll be taken to admin mode. The passcode is visible and can be managed in your Funnel Account Settings.
Pro tip! Remember to be prepared for your upcoming events. Test the Funnel app and always check the app store on any device you intend to use, to make sure there are no available updates to process. Don't forget to have the devices charged. If you're concerned about connectivity on the day, remember to export your event registration list from within your Funnel account and print it to have it on hand.
