Some events only need a general attendance number to track how many people attended. Other events need to track specific attendance to follow up with certain people.
In Planning Center, you can track general and specific attendance, depending on the purpose of an event. Answer the questions below to find the best way to take attendance for your event.
If you need to know how many people are at the event, you have two options:
If you want people to register before the event, use Simple Signups, which allows people to reserve multiple signups simultaneously.
If you need to tally the total number of people in a specific place at a particular time, you can use the free Headcounts app!
Some events are public, like services anyone can attend. They typically have a regular frequency, and they're scheduled indefinitely.
Other events require some notice, like an invitation or a link to a page. These events also typically have end dates or take breaks between events.
So, what kind of event are you having?
If the event is for building relationships, create it in Groups.
If it's not a team meeting, you need to use Check-Ins.
