To account for your Main Guests and any +1s they might bring, create a column on the guest list excel for 'Total Guests' (i.e. Main Guests and their +1s)

Please note: ‘Total Guests’ is not the number of additional guests coming with the main guest, it is the total number of guests including the Main Guest.


How to account for Additional/ +1 guests on the Excel file

To ensure an accurate guest count the Total Guests logic is as follows:

No RSVP =  0 Total Guests
(This is to account for anyone not expected to come and won't count them toward total guest count. Choose NO RSVP after importing when it asks you to assign a default value)

Main Guest Only  =   1 Total Guests
Main Guest + 1  =      2 Total Guests
Main Guest + 2 =      3 Total Guests
etc.

These numbers are what should be placed in the 'Total Guests' column on the excel spreadsheet for each guest. It should look like the below example:


Pro Tip: zkipster additionally recommends adding a custom guest field for the Guest's Names on the excel file so that check-in teams have that information readily available when checking in guests and their +1s.

Please note we have a cap of 10,000 guests per event as this is the limit we can guarantee flawless performance and a quality experience of zkipster. This limit applies to Main Guests only and is the total across any guest lists inside one event (not including +1s). Adding your guests to various sessions will count towards the 10k guest limit for guaranteed best performance on the app.

For events with 2,000+ guests, please additionally refer to our article on how to manage large guest lists in zkipster.
