Another great feature in ShowGizmo is the Import feature. This allows you to quickly and easily load up data relating to the following:
- Attendance Data
If you already know what sessions attendees are going to, you can pre-load their schedule so they have a personalised schedule within the app.
All you need is a CSV file containing the data you wish to import and away you go. If you are using a registration system, you should be able to export all of this data.
Each Import page provides a downloadable CSV template to make things easy for you. Your CSV file must be correctly formatted, so please ensure you use this template for your imports to ensure there are no errors.
Importing Attendance Data
Go to Import > Attendance Data
Before you get started you should ensure you have:
- Added all of the tracks, time slots and sessions to your event
- A unique name for each session at your event
- Added or imported your event participants
Click on Download Template. You will need to fill in this template marking the sessions that each attendee is going to. Once you have done this, save the file as a CSV.
Click on Select CSV file, navigate to the location of your document on your computer, then click Open.
Once the file has loaded, click on Review, this will take you to a new page showing if there are any errors in the data. Once you have reviewed this information and are happy to proceed, click on Confirm Import.
