Check-ins are a crucial part of your onsite event networking experience. Learn how our Check-in App ensures quick multi-location event and session check-ins of your participants from any mobile or tablet device.
b2match Entrance is a perfect tool for keeping track of participants on your in-person or hybrid events. It allows easy check-in and check-out of participants at your b2match event, or on specific event locations.
Please note that b2match Entrance will soon replace the old b2match mobile app, which will then be used only by b2match participants.
Once logged in, you will be presented with all events for which you are listed as the main or supporting organizer. For easier navigation, the list is divided into current, future, and all events.
The app menu can be accessed in the upper right corner where you can connect the app to a printer, find legal information, rate the app, switch between light and dark mode, and log out of the app.
To access the app settings for this specific event, click the settings symbol in the top left corner.
Here you can define whether badges are printed automatically after you check a participant in, you can select or change an existing printer, and turn vibrations on or off.
Event Home page
Once you select the event for the check-in, you will see the Home page of this event.
Events can have multiple locations, so you need to select the one you are or will be located in.
The default location selected will be "event".
If you have defined more locations in the Agenda, you will be able to check participant in our out of those specific locations. This way, you can keep track of your participants even more and always know where each of your participants is.
You can change your location by tapping the "Set your checkpoint location" section.
You can also see an overview of the number of checked in participants at each location, as well as the organizers of the event.
The participant list displays all participants that have registered for the event.
At the top of the list, you see which event location is selected.
The list is divided into "Absent" and "Checked In". This way, you can clearly see which participants were already checked in on the selected location, and which haven't.
By tapping a participant on the list, you can see their check in activities to see where has this participant been checked in so far.
You can easily search the list by typing a participant's name, and you can sort the list by:
- time of the check-in (newest to oldest)
- alphabetically (A to Z)
- alphabetically (Z to A)
- registration (newest to oldest)
Manually Checking In
To check a participant in or out, you first need to make sure you are checking them in at the location you want. Then, you simply need to tap the check-in button next to the participant profile.
The participant will then be moved to the "Checked In" list. To check them out, tap the check-out button next to the participant profile.
Checking In with QR Code Scanning
To speed up the process, you can check participants by scanning QR codes.
Please note that participants can get their QR code by:
Once you open the scanner, you will be able to perform 3 different scans:
- Find - scans the participant QR code to open their profile preview and see their check-in history
- Check In - checks the participant in to the selected location
- Check Out - checks the participant out to the selected location
To use the scanner, you simply need to point your camera to the participant's QR code and the action selected at the bottom of the screen will be performed.
Once an action is performed, a pop-up will be displayed to indicate that it was successful.
This mode allows you to check participants in or out much quicker, without the need to change screens, manually search the participants, or press any buttons.
The Activity History allows you to see all check-ins and check-outs on the event.
You can see individual participant history by tapping a profile on the list, or all the activity on the event.
Check-in data is shared with the organizer's tool, so you can also access it there. You can use the check-in information to send targeted emails or push notifications to participants, depending on their location. You can filter the list with the Advanced Search.
