Check In App Released for Mac

The Guest Manager iPad Check In App has been ported to a native macOS app! Enjoy the same great check in experience you’re used to on iPad and iPhone, optimized for the Mac.


The app will sync in realtime with other connected iOS devices and Macs, just like the iPhone and iPad app will.

Check in guests

  • Search and check in guests by name, custom fields, etc
  • Add new guests
  • Monitor arrival log
  • Edit and manage events and attendees

Dark mode

Events can run late. No problem, make the app easy on the eyes with dark mode.

Benefits over web based check in

  1. This app works offline, just like the iPad and iPhone app
  2. Optimized experience for check-in
  3. Instant searching
  4. Talks to other iPad and iPhone devices in realtime

iPad vs Mac?

Please note the following features are not available in the Mac app:

  • Scanning tickets/barcodes (using either the camera or external scanners)
  • Name badge printing

Check In App

V2 - iPad and iPhone Event Check In App

Guest Manager Check In version 2 is now available on the Apple App Store.


New Features

  • Added support for the Socket Mobile bluetooth scanners

    Check In Actions

    where you can configure actions to take upon check-in. This initial release includes actions for assigning a barcode to an attendee (for example activating a pre-printed pass or wristband), taking a photo, collecting a signature, product pickups, and printing a name badge. In the future we will offer actions for filling out a form, signing a waiver, and more! Let us know your ideas.


    for events with sessions, you can allocate vouchers to an attendee, which can be redeemed for attendance at your sessions. Useful for attendance tracking where you don’t know in advance which sessions an attendee will attend, and would like to pre-allocate a certain number of sessions that the attendee is eligible to attend.

    Product Pickups

    You can add or import items on an attendee profile to make available during check in, either scanning or lookup. This is designed to be a flexible system, used for tracking anything such as add-ons, meals, product samples, welcome packages, etc.

Bug fixes and enhancements

  • Navigating from an event back to the main event list is more intuitive, simply swipe up or down on the top bar while in an event to reveal the back button
  • Improved syncing using periodic background tasks to ensure data is kept up to date
  • You can now use the camera from the main attendee list to lookup a guest by scanning their barcode
  • Improved realtime syncing using Apple’s latest iOS 13 web socket frameworks
  • We now request permission for push notifications so you can better control and monitor device connectivity from the web based application
  • When you are offline, with changes needing to sync, a push notification will remind you periodically that there is data that needs to be sent upstream
  • New notification at the top when working in offline mode
  • Can type or scan to assign a new barcode to an attendee
  • List registered sessions in attendee profile
  • Past events now display in descending order, meaning the most recently ended event is shown first
  • Scanner view now displays the current event and date to prevent any confusion
  • You can now quickly log out and in as a different PIN/user (e.g. from full access mode to Scan Only mode)
  • Email address is now an option to display in the attendee list
  • If you are scanning for sessions, and the session just ended, a friendly popup asks you to switch scanning to the next session
  • Improved readability of custom fields in the main attendee list
  • Added “Absent” tab to the attendees list, to filter by guests who are not checked in yet
  • Improved readability of the events list, moving date and venue to their own line
