Import Attendees
print icon

You can import attendees into an event for recordkeeping purposes (board meetings, past events, events hosted by an outside vendor such as a webinar, etc.).

 

IMPORTANT: importing attendees will only register the attendees for the event; IT WILL NOT GENERATE INVOICES. There is currently no way to generate invoicing for an event for imported attendees. If invoicing is needed, BEST PRACTICE IS TO REGISTER THE ATTENDEES FOR THE EVENT; this will create the appropriate invoice and will tie the invoice to the event. Manually created invoices do NOT get associated to the event.

 

To import attendees, on the Attendees tab, click the Actions button and select Import Attendees.

 

 

You will have 2 options- to import from an existing list/committee, or import using a CSV file.

 

Please note that if your import is for multiple/differing registration types, you will need to break up the import into one list/file per registration type.

List import

 

  • To import from a list, select the desired list from the dropdown. (REQUIRED)
  • Specify a registration status (Registered, Attended, No Show)
  • Specify a registration type. (REQUIRED) (A Registration Type must be assigned to the imported attendees, but note that this will NOT perform any billing. The main purpose for the import at this time is to get the names on the attendee list for attendance tracking. The registration type selection simply allows these attendees to come in marked with the correct registration type for reporting purposes.)
  • Click "Import" when you've made your choices.

 

CSV File Import

To import from a CSV file, enable the CSV File option.

 

 

The column headers available for use are:

  • Email
  • FirstName
  • LastName
  • FullName
  • Organization
  • ContactId

 

IMPORTANT: The MINIMUM REQUIRED fields are Email + FirstName + LastName, OR Email + FullName.

 

  • Once your file is compiled, select it using the "Choose File" button. (REQUIRED) Browse to the file on your computer and upload it.
  • Specify a registration status (Registered, Attended, No Show)
  • Specify a registration type. (REQUIRED) (A Registration Type must be assigned to the imported attendees, but note that this will NOT perform any billing. The main purpose for the import at this time is to get the names on the attendee list for attendance tracking. The registration type selection simply allows these attendees to come in marked with the correct registration type for reporting purposes.)
  • Click "Import" when you are ready to import your attendees. You will see a summary of the import, as well as any potential errors. The system will try to match the imported attendees to existing database contacts whenever possible (i.e. the imported email address is an exact match to an existing contact). Be sure to match attendees to contacts if needed (especially if Continuing Education credits/hours are being applied)!


Tip: using the ContactID in GrowthZone in your import file will ALWAYS match the correct individual in GrowthZone. ContactID is a reportable field in a Contacts Report.
