2. Event Entry
This section of the dashboard allows the event organizer to manage the attendee entry, view participants lists & customize email notifications to attendees.
Here the event organizer has four choices:
1. Anyone can enter in just 2-steps with a unique link
2. Only people who are invited can enter
3. Anyone can enter after sign in
4. Anyone can enter without sign in
1. Anyone can enter in just 2-steps with a unique link:
This event entry will allow the event participants to enter the event hassle-free without requiring OTP or sign in. The unique event access link will be sent to the email address provided by the registrants.
Refer to the following article for detailed information: How to set up a 2-steps email authentication entry rule for participants?
2. Only people who are invited can enter:
People on the participant list can enter the event using their unique links.
An event organizer can use this option to restrict event access to specific people. The event organizer needs to upload a list of authorized attendees.
Only the attendees (imported emails ) specified on this list are allowed to enter the event, and other people who have your event link but are not included in the CSV will not be able to join the event. They will get a message saying that the event is private.
Send an invite via email.
After uploading the list, the event organizer will have two ways to invite their participants:
Send participants the event link, and only those included in the CSV file uploaded will be able to attend your event.
Send every participant a unique link via email.

Share the event link with your target audience only, as anyone who has this event link would be able to enter the event. Email addresses will be shared with the event organizer and provided in the event analytics report.
This option also helps in managing abuse. You can also block abusive attendees during the event, and they won’t re-enter the event with the same email address.
4. Anyone can enter without sign in: Share the event link with your target audience only, as anyone who has this event link would be able to enter the event.
