What is Attendee Groups?
Attendee Groups enable event administrators to categorize users and send notifications or emails to a specific group of users. You can also show hidden features to a specific group of participants, for example, a private schedule, feature or document that is only visible to Investor group of guests. There are 2 types of Attendee Groups: Group (or Normal Group) and Registration Group. Read on to know more about attendee groups and registration groups.
Groups (also known as Normal Groups)
Groups can be located on the left of panel of the Attendees page at your event's admin panel. Admins can create groups at the attendees page and use these groups to categorize attendees. Admins can create as many Groups as your event requires and you can also group attendees into multiple groups. Admins can also choose to set limits for groups when necessary.
Registration Groups are distinguished by the Registration Ticket Names. This can be accessed on the Registration page under Ticket Name via the admin panel.
Adding attendees to Groups
Normal groups are based on the groups admin has created here.
There are 3 methods to assign an attendee to Normal groups:
Method 1: Assign a group to individual attendee
- Click on an attendee to open popup
- From popup select Groups tab ➔ Check the box accordingly to allocate attendee to a group and click save.
Method 2: Assign a group to multiple attendees
- From the list of attendees ➔ Check the box of the attendee(s) you wish to reassign a group.
- Click the Reassign button and select a group from the dropdown list. Changes will be reflected automatically.
Method 3: Assign group(s) to attendees before importing attendee list
