    Event check in for previous participants

    Asked by spyonvegas on April 18, 2017 at 08:29 PM

    hello,

    i run yoga events and have a database of names and emails. we currently check people in with clipboards, pencil and paper. i want to digitize.

    i'm looking for two things:

    new participant: gather their name, email, and other data

    returning participant: a lookup function of some sort. whether by name or email address.

    the returning participant is key. 80% of our participants are returning, don't want them to have to type in their info a second time. 

    thank you

    Returning participant: a lookup function of some sort. whether by name or email address.

    The possible workaround for your requirement is to send the Returning Applicant an Autoresponder email with prepopulated form URL. This guides will help you to achieve your requirements:
