The Check-in activity makes on-site registration easier and faster.
With the import and export functionality, it makes your life much easier. It’s good for the participants as well, as they can get over the check-in process much faster. The hosts / hostesses type a few characters, press a button… and done! No more where-is-that-page, no more long check-in queues.
Not to say a professional solution gives the image of excellence. On the other hand, running about with papers may do the job, but it’s not the best either…
You can integrate the Check-in with the Welcome activity to give a warm welcome for the arriving participants.
