The zkipster app is built for quick and smooth guests' check-in and management during your event.
Here is a quick video of the zkipster App:
An Overview of the zkipster App on iOS devices:
As with the browser, in the app, you can access your upcoming and past events.
In the events home screen, you can sort the event list and access the App settings and support channels using the three dots icon at the bottom.
Inside Your Event:
On the top of the screen, you will find the event information, flyer, and images followed by the guest lists.
Inside the Guestlist:
Once you are inside the list, you will see your guests and their associated information. You can set which columns to appear on the app and in what order from the Guest Fields section in the zkipster browser. You can learn more in the article here.
Use the icons at the bottom to navigate through the features and manage your guest list:
- Guest Lists icon takes you back to the event main page
- Seating: access and manage your event seating chart (iPad only)
- Search guests across all guest lists
- Use the + button to add new guests to your event
- QR Scan: activate the zkipster's scanner and check-in guests by scanning QR codes and barcodes
- More: access the app settings, zkipster's Help Center, or get in touch with the support team
How to Check-in Guests
Check-in for events is best when exclusively on the app interface. In case of loss of signal, the system continues working offline on the app interface which guarantees check-in with no interruption. You can download the zkipster app from the App store on your device.
Please Note: There is no limitation in the number of devices which can be used for check-in, there are also no extra charges for the usage of multiple devices.
You can check-in guests using:
- The Check-in button in the guest profile
- Swipe to check-in
- Scan QR codes and barcodes
Via the Guest Profile:
Use the Search Bar or Search Button to look for guests by name, email, plus one guest or other relevant information uploaded via custom fields. Then use the check-in buttons in the guest's profile to check-in the Main guest and any +1's.
Swipe to check-in
Swipe to check-in is available on both- iPad and iPhone devices. Swipe to the right across the guest's name. Single guests will be checked in immediately. For guests who have a +1, you can check the main guest or the party altogether by clicking on the single or multiple people's images respectively.
Scan QR codes and barcodes
You can scan barcodes and QR codes to find and check-in guests quickly. Use the QR code reader on the bottom of the screen to scan the code.
To speed up the process, enable the ‘Check-in Guest After Scan’ mode via the app settings. Then zkipster will check guests in automatically after scanning their QR code.
Note: A continuous Check-in option is available when scanning your QR code/Barcode. When auto check-in is enabled a square icon is shown on the top bar when the camera is open. Continuous check-in is active when the three square icons are shown and off when a single square appears. Learn more about continuous guest check-in in this article.
As long as you are connected to a stable WiFi connection, the guest count and check-in numbers will sync automatically across all devices. You can track the progress at the top of your screen. You can also see the check-in summary inside the event page, on the right of each guest lit.
If you lose your WiFi connection - causing the app to go into offline mode, the check-in and guest information will continue to be stored locally on each device.
After the event, make sure to reconnect your devices to the internet- one device at a time and enforce manual sync, swiping down across your screen. For more information on working in an offline mode, check the article here.
