To test a barcoded invite live:

Create an event, an e-invite associated to the event and sending the e-invite.

  • Create an event by selecting the blue Create event button and run through adding an event name, start and end time.

  • Now add yourself as a guest by selecting the Guest_Create Guest button. Simply add your full name and hit ok.

  • Now add your email in the email field and also create an ID tag that the system can use to send the test invite too. You add a tag by selecting the blue Add tag link on the right hand side under the tags field. IMPORTANT - make sure you select the blue Save button to save all the guest profile fields.

  • Now go back to the event by clicking the event name in the upper part of the screen.

  • Select the Invite button to create your Invite.

  • You'll now be taken to your created default Invite template. Don't worry about editing the invite as this is just for test purposes.

  • Now scroll down and select the Save and continue button.

  • You'll then be taken to the pre-send area. Select the PDF format tick box and then click inside the white field at the top which says Select inside it.

  • Select the tag (the one you created). This will now only send the Invite to you, as you have this tag ID against your guest profile.

  • Now select the Send button.

  • Your invite will then be scheduled to send.

  • Your invite will quickly moderated by us and then sent out. This will occur quite quickly.

  • Your invite will now be sent to your Inbox as a PDF attachment including a unique scan code.

Now go to your app store and download the iOS Qflow for events checkin app or the Android Qflow for events checkin app.

  • Once downloaded go through the onboarding slides and select 'I have an account already'

  • Log into your account using your user email and password.

  • Select the test event to download the checkin data.

  • Now select the Tap to Scan button, hoover over the QR code on screen on the PDF ticket and successfully scan the invite code.

  • You can then scan the code again to test the duplicate scan function.

    This is a very simple test of Qflow's functionality. There is much more to the app in terms of guest list management, scan modes, invite branding / person guest inserts (name, ticket types, guest notes etc.
