What is the check-in section and how is it configured?

In this article, we explain all the steps for you to carry out the control access for your event as efficiently and quickly as possible.

The check-in module is used to monitor the entries and exits of the attendees and determine the capacity of your event.


All attendees must access the event with a QR code.

There are 3 possibilities:

  • Sent via email with the QR code.

  • Activating the Digital Accreditation QR module in the App. To activate the modules, refer to the article 👉 "How to configure modules?". If you don't have access to the App yet, get in touch with the Meetmaps sales team.
  • With a Badge/Accreditation. 👉 You can create it with the assistance of the Badge Builder Guide.

To configure this module, go to the Settings section in the Registration Panel by entering the Check-in section in the left-hand side menu.

There are 5 customizable fields based on your needs:

  • Activate check-in: ⚠️ IMPORTANT, you have to activate it to carry out check-in ⚠️.
  • Activate Counter mode: Add attendees manually to the capacity from the check-in APP without the need for prior registration. Acts as a digital clicker.
  • Maximum capacity: Specify the maximum capacity for your event per day.
  • Acceso to the event or a room: In these two fields, you have two options:
    • No restrictions: The same QR can be scanned multiple times without the need for check-out.
    • Only one entry at a time: The QR of each attendee can only be used once. Only if there is a subsequent check-out can it be scanned again. Allow check-in without the need for prior general check-in: Perform check-in for specific sessions without scanning the QR code at the entrance of the event.
  • Allow check-in in session without the need to do general check-in before: Perform check-in for specific sessions without the need to scan the QR code at the entrance of the event.

On the right side, you will find the readers 📲:

They are used to access the Check-in app with the devices that will scan the QR codes of the event (for example, for the hostesses in the access control).

When you create a reader, it provides you with a username and a password that must be used to log in to the Check-in app.

❗❗ It is necessary to create a reader for each device that will be used.

TIP 💡 Event administrators can also use the Check-in App to scan using their email and password, but they have to be attenndees of the event too.

From here, follow the Check-in App Guide 📲 to execute the access control for your event.
