Shortcode

Learn about how to use the shortcodes available in the plugin.

Check-in

Add the shortcode [check_in_event id = <the _event_id>] to one of your site pages replacing <the_event_id> with the even product ID.

For example, [check_in_event id = 220]

Event product ID

A table will be shown in the front end, including the complete list of the tickets linked to the selected event product. (Only visible to users accessing the site as administrator or shop manager).

check in

Click on the ticket to access its data.

Ticket details

By default, the search occurs by inserting the ticket number. By selecting the ‘automatic search’ checkbox the ticket will be checked in automatically after searching it.

Search by ticket number

If you are using the plugin in combination with YITH WooCommerce Barcodes and QR-Codes, the search can be done by scanning:

  • the order barcode: this returns the list of tickets linked to that order (the order must include the event product used by the shortcode)
  • the ticket barcode: this returns ticket data if the selected event includes a ticket with the barcode 

Export

From the table, you can export a single ticket or all the ones included in the list.

Export tickets by shortcode

Check-in

The check-in for the tickets can be applied manually or automatically.

For manual use, you have to click on ‘thumbs up’ for check in, and ‘thumbs down’ for check out.

Check in and out

If you choose the automatic check-in, you need to enable the checkbox “Automatic check-in” highlighted in the following image.

From now on, for each search, the automatic check-in will apply to all the tickets shown as search result. By enabling the de “Automatic search” option results appear as soon as you stop typing, without pushing enter or the search button. This is a useful option if you are using a scan to check in tickets.

Event calendar

Use the shortcode [event_calendar] to show the calendar wherever you like. It can be a bigger version like this on any page of your website:

Alternatively, if you prefer showing it in a widget, please, use the dedicated widget.
