Free yourself from guestlist stress

Free yourself from guestlist stress

If you're still creating guestlists, printing them out, updating by hand when more people inevitably need to be added, and crossing off names with a biro on the door, life could be so much easier!

Our guestlist feature allows you to create multiple guestlists, and populate them on an individual and/or bulk basis. Crucially, this means you can send scannable tickets to as few or as many guests as you like (even if they are not already a FIXR user) and scan their tickets on the door like any other attendee.

It's super simple to use, you can enter their name and email address or upload a .csv file, and your guests will automatically receive an email with their ticket. You can even use the FIXR Entry Manager app to manage a separate guestlist-only queue.

This feature is perfect for any event organiser looking to organise free entry for friends, special guests, sponsors and even artists without it impacting your ticket sales figures.

How do I create my guestlist?

Step 1: Log into your FIXR organiser account.
Step 2: Select the event and then 'Guestlists'
Step 3: Select 'Create Guestlist' and give your list a name

Remember, you can create as many guestlists as you like, so you might want the name to determine the type of entry or wristband your guest will receive. For example, you might put 'Hospitality Guestlist', 'Jess' Guestlist' or 'Sponsor 1's Guestlist'.

FYI: The name of the guestlist will appear on the guest's ticket so please don't create a guestlist called 'People we hate but have to invite anyway'.

How do I add guests to the list?

You can add these individually by selecting 'Add an Attendee'. Each guest will need:

  • First name
  • Last name
  • Email address
  • Number of tickets

If you want to upload multiple guests at the same time, you can import a .csv file by selecting 'Import Attendees'.

Once you have added the attendees to your guestlist, each will automatically receive a confirmation email and pdf ticket which can be redeemed on the door using the FIXR Entry Manager app.

How do I manage my guestlist?

No list is set in stone, so you will be able to create and edit guestlists as you go and add/remove attendees within them. Each guestlist will be displayed as a ticket type within the Entry Manager app, but it won't affect your ticket sales number on the organiser.

On entry, you will be able to select which guestlists and other ticket types you want to be able to scan on each device. This means you can manage queues in almost any way you like from the list if necessary.

Benefits of using a guestlist on FIXR

  • Send scannable tickets for all guestlist attendees to simplify entry management and admission, and capture audience data for all of your attendees.
  • Replace clunky and outdated methods like printed guestlists, saving time on the door and minimising delays.
  • Improve the accuracy of audience data and insights, with all attendee data centralised on one easy-to-use platform.
  • Ensure entry management is a simple and seamless experience for event staff and attendees alike - no more confusion about who is (or isn't!) on the list.
  • Manage capacities safely by getting real-time data on how many tickets have been scanned - including those on guestlists - in the FIXR Entry Manager app.

What event organisers say:

The guestlist feature has made our life so much easier. We used to have the problem of writing a physical list and needing someone on the door checking it.

Now, we can send [guests] a ticket. Nobody has to call me during events saying “come to the door”.  Kojo, Status 100 Promotions
