New iPhone Check-in App Update

If you have an iOS device and want to process lines faster, the new version of Ticketbud’s check-in app is perfect for you!

After working closely with event organizers, our new app is designed to fulfill all of your needs as an event organizer and your attendees will thank you. Never again will you have to worry about the line being held up. And best of all, this app is completely free for you to use.

Awesome New Features:

List of All Events  When you first open up the Ticketbud app, you’ll be prompted to log in- the username and password are the same as your Ticketbud login info.

Right when you log in, you’ll be able to see a list of all the events that you’re currently running. When you tap on a certain event, you’ll get access to a whole host of rich data such as your gross sales, sales by ticket type, and the attendee list for that particular event. You’ll also be able to check in attendees from your list or scan tickets, which brings us to our next awesome feature:

Check in by name, or scan ticket QR codes: In order to scan a ticket’s QR code, all you need to do is tap the “scan tickets” button, which then utilizes your device’s camera to view and process the code. You’ll then be notified one of two ways: Ticket Validated, or, if the ticket is unrecognized or already used, Ticket Invalidated. Ticket scanning is one of the easiest, fastest, and best ways to keep those lines moving.

The coolest part of the QR ticket scanning is that it doesn’t even have to be a physical ticket- our ticket scanning feature also allows you to check in attendees tickets right from their phone.

If you’re not using physical tickets, you can also check in by name. All you have to do is use the Attendee List feature, which gives you a search feature that allows you to check in guests by tapping a button next to their name. You don’t need to have physical features for this to work.

Mobile Scanning and Multiple Devices Did we happen to mention that you can even further avoid bottlenecks in lines by having multiple devices with the Ticketbud app at your gate, thus allowing you to check in tickets at the same time? You’ll love that and the fact that the app works seamlessly across multiple devices. It’s just another reason why Ticketbud is known for being obsessive about helping organizers succeed.

Note that as of writing, the Ticketbud app is only for event organizers. Don’t despair if you’re not a Ticketbud organizer, however- we have something in the works for you as well!

If you’re an organizer (or attendee) and you have feedback for our new app, please don’t hesitate to contact us. We’re here to make your event as seamless as possible. As always, Ticketbud is here to help you take control of your event.
