    Hi Franky,

    I know that the QR codes are sent through emails and easily accessible through email but my events have older folks attending. They are not tech-savvy so it will be time consuming for ushers to help them navigate their phones to find the email app, get the email then scan the QR code. This will cause delay in admitting the attendees.

    I checked the documentation and it seems that it only lists the attendees using [eme_attendees]. Is there a way to show a list of attendees with checkboxes beside their names so that if anyone does not know where their QR code is, authorized people can still take attendance for them by checking the boxes? Or is there another way to do this?

    Also, does EME already automatically take the attendees’ attendance when they log into their WP accounts and accessing the ‘EME Access Check’ page/post? I’m using ‘EME Access Check’ for virtual events and I have no idea how to take attendance for these attendees.

    Thanks.

    I have no idea what that “EME Access Check” page is 🙂 If it is something you created, it depends on the shortcode used.
    But: attendances are only stored if someone with enough rights scans the relevant qr code (or in fact goes to the url behind the qr code).
    Adding extra attendances is possible, however not “per event”. In the backend you have “attendance reports” where you can also add an attendance (name only, optionally add the date/time if not the current time).
    For virtual events there’s no magic solution … you need to use your video conf tool to check and save the attendance info. In theory it would be possible to create a local page on a site and check the date/time etc … before going to the actual virtual event url, but even that is never a guarantee on actual attendance (and while this is just a solution I came up with, I have never seen that on other sites so far).

    ‘EME Access Check’ is the EME code that is at the bottom of every page/post to limit access to certain groups/memberships. That is the name stated on my pages/posts.

    I’m using youtube live streaming to simplify the viewing experience. The attendees do not need to log into their youtube accounts as the video is embedded into my website so there’s no way for youtube to provide any meaningful data for attendance.

    Even if I use Zoom, it cannot provide attendance for me if I embed Zoom into my website.

    Anyway, thanks for your reply. Will try your suggested method.

    Ok, that ‘EME Access Check’ is only used if you’re logged in. If not, EME can’t possibly know who’s looking at the page …
