Scanning or Manual Check ins

You can scan tickets via the QR code or use the list of ticket holders to manually check attendees in by swiping left over their name. The TryBooking Scanning App can also check out attendees so that they can check in again at a later time.   

To start scanning tickets, from the bottom menu, select the TryBooking Scanning App  icon. This will activate your camera.


TryBooking Scanning App tap to scan


Simply hover the phone over the QR code on the ticket. A successful read will display a green screen and a ping sound. There is no need to push a button in order to scan tickets.



A red screen and alarm sound indicate that this ticket has an issue.

The red screen text will indicate :

  • If the ticket has already been scanned, if so by which scanning point / person and how long ago.
  • That the ticket is for the wrong session (Day or event).
  • That it is the wrong ticket type based on a rule that you've applied.


Finding tickets

When a person arrives without their ticket or their ticket won't scan, it's easy to find their booking / ticket. Go to your list of ticket holders by clicking the Screen Shot 2017-08-09 at 11.51.37 AM.png icon and search by their last name, which will filter the list. From here you can check the person in by swiping left over their name.  

TIP: If you are scanning tickets with the camera click the icon Screen Shot 2017-08-09 at 11.51.37 AM.png to move to search your ticket holder and then the camera icon to return to scanning again.
