If you skipped linking your Onsite event to a Socio Registration event when you set it up, no problem! You can quickly and easily link the two so that attendee data can flow into Onsite automatically. If you're using a Socio Event App, and not Socio Registration, you can link your Event App to Socio Onsite.

⭐️ Keep in mind, if you link Socio Onsite to a Socio Registration event that's linked to an Event App, the Event App will also automatically be linked to the Onsite event when you link registration.

Why link?

When you link Socio Onsite to Socio Registration and/or an Event App or Community, all attendee date flows into Onsite automatically, so there's no need to import attendees manually.

Registration

All Tickets you create in your Socio Registration event are pulled into Socio Onsite as Attendee Types. Attendee Types can be used to create badges for specific groups of attendees or to create visibility rules for elements on a badge. Attendees' ticket QR codes are also pulled into Socio Onsite, so attendees can use the Check In with QR Code feature.

Event App

If you're not using Socio Registration, but you're using an Event App, you can link Socio Onsite to your Event App so attendee data flows into Onsite. For Event Apps with active Lead Retrieval, you can print Lead Retrieval QR codes on attendee badges, and attendees can check in with those QR codes.

⭐️ Keep in mind, attendees synced from an Event App or Community that isn't linked to Socio Registration won't have an Attendee Type. If you need to use Attendee Types for badges or visibility rules, consider exporting Onsite attendees, filling in Attendee Type values, and then re-importing.

Link to Registration

Go to the Attendees tab, and click the Integration button. In the modal that appears, find the Socio Registration event you want to link to, select it, and then click Save Changes.

Attendees will now automatically flow into Socio Onsite from your Socio Registration event.

Link to an Event App/Community

⚠️ Caution! The Settings menu is only available after publishing Onsite. To publish, you must have at least one complete Badge and one Attendee.

Hover your cursor over the Settings menu, and select Pair an Event. In the modal that appears, find the Socio Event App or Community you want to link to, select it, and then click Save Changes.

Attendees will now automatically flow into Socio Onsite from your Event App or Community.

Now that your event is all linked up, and attendees are in, take a look at creating badges based on Attendee Types!
