FAQ

Categories: Account, Payments

No, there aren’t. However, if you choose to use online payment there is a small handling fee paid to the operator.

Category: Handling

Yes, but not always. Attendees can change their data or cancel their registration on their Attendee’s Profile (his personal screen with all registration details), if the registration is open. This can’t be done if:

  • registration is closed;
  • attendee has been accepted – in case of a Paid Event (even if registration is still open).

Categories: Design, Integrations

Yes, this is really simple. Go to Form menu and click on Integration tab. Copy the code and paste it on your website. The widget automatically adjust itself to the width of your template.

Category: Design

Yes. It is possible to put your own graphic (logo or header) instead of Konfeo.com brand on your registration page and e-mails. Please contact us to activate this feature. See White label option in Pricing for details.

Categories: Handling, Security

No, for safety reasons Konfeo is used to communicate with registered attendees only, however, there are a number of easy to use online applications for this purpose.

Category: Handling

Yes. You can easily copy your old registration form to use for a new event or clone the whole event and edit any fields to customize it for your new event.

Categories: Account, Payments

Absolutely not! Creating an account and using it is free and always will be.

Category: Security

Absolutely not! Your privacy and security is of utmost importance to us. Your database is your personal protected property. Any data submitted on your account is protected and will never be used by us or anyone else except for that purpose for which it was intended.

Categories: Design, Handling

Definitely yes. We put much effort to make sure that the system (administrator panel and registration page) looks good on all models of screens. This means that you and your attendees can freely operate the system using smartphones, tablets, monitors and other devices.

Category: Handling

It is pretty straightforward. First, make sure participants of your event receive e-tickets – check the appropriate option in the Event settings before opening the registration. Test the barcode scanner beforehand:

  • connect the scanner to the computer/laptop (you can also connect it via bluetooth to your mobile device)
  • run the system demo
  • generate some sample e-tickets
  • open the Check-in menu item and log in to the check-in app
  • switch to Scan mode
  • use the scanner to scan the tickets and check if the displayed information is correct

In the case of a scanner failure, you can always enter the ticket number manually or use QR codes. You can use any number of scanners to handle the reception, but due to the very high speed of scanning (a fraction of a second), we recommend keeping the ratio: one computer = one scanner. If you connect several scanners to one computer, receptionists won’t know whose scan result they see on the screen.

Category: Handling

It’s easy: add a checkbox to your form and tick the option for mandatory fill. Enter the proper description and place the link to file in HTML format.

Categories: Account, Handling

It is very easy. After logging in, click on the user icon in the upper right corner of the screen and then click User’s profile. In the Login settings section, you will find the email address that is your LOGIN to the system. You can change your login at any time.

Category: Account

If the time comes when you choose to delete your Konfeo account, please write a short message and send it to info@konfeo.com. Remember, that the instruction should be sent from the e-mail address assigned to the account you want to delete.

Category: Handling

It’s simple, the procedure is as follows:

  • on the list of events, in the Completed tab, click on the relevant event, then go to the Event settings menu
  • at the bottom of the page, click the Delete the event button and confirm the deletion

ATTENTION, deleting an event also deletes all accounting documents related to it – download them, if you haven’t already done so.

Categories: Handling, Payments

You don’t need to use discount codes to sell group tickets/seats at a more favorable price than individual tickets. Instead, go to the Groups/Fees menu and create a new ticket/fee type for group registration. If you intend to offer a Valentine discount for couples, set the parameters to “2” in minimum and maximum number of submitted attendees checkboxes. Assign a lower unit price accordingly. In this way, you will force the registrant to provide data for two attendees and to charge a double but more favorable fee than two individual registrations.

Similarly, if you intend to offer more favorable ticket purchase conditions for groups, set the minimum group size and assign the appropriate price.

Category: Integrations

It’s straightforward – for training organizers, we have developed a widget displaying a list of active events. Just copy the appropriate code from the system and place it anywhere on your website:

Category: Handling

It’s simple: just fill in following fields in Groups/Fees settings:

  • minimum number of submitted attendees;
  • maximum number of submitted attendees.

Changing these parameters allows you to set up a proper mechanism for registration. In the first step, the attendee will be asked to choose the number of submitted persons. The next step will take him to the standard registration form with additional fields for multi-registration.

Category: Design

Use dashes (-) between words in your registration page address. Your link should look like this:
https://my-good-looking-registration-address.konfeo.com
This way the address is easier to read and wraps in lines.

Categories: GDPR, Security

You can manually delete the personal data of attendees registered for your events at any time. If you don’t, the system will automatically delete this data 180 days after the event ends. You will receive an email two weeks in advance informing you of the planned deletion.

The functioning of this mechanism is dictated by the requirements of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which indicates that “personal data may be stored for a period not longer than it is necessary for the purposes for which the data is processed”.

Category: Handling

There is no limit although you can limit the number of tickets/seats anytime, by simply going to Groups/Fees settings or setting Global ticket limit.

Categories: Account, Handling

As many as you want! Really, the more the better! We are pleased to be of service to you.

Category: Design

As many as you want. There is no limit.

Category: Handling

As many as you like, but only to registered attendees.

Category: Security

At Konfeo, we use the following procedure to ensure the security of the users of the system:

  • database backup every 3 hours during the day (archived for a year)
  • daily backup of user files (archived for a year)
  • daily system configuration backup (archived for a year)
  • weekly operating system update
  • weekly security update for Konfeo software
  • daily overview of system logs

All of these activities are designed to ensure maximum security of the information collected in the system. In the event of an unexpected and serious system failure, we can restore the system to its full functionality within a maximum of 60 minutes.

In Konfeo’s history, this has not happened yet, but we have tested such a scenario as part of preventive activities.

This is really simple and take only few steps! Here is a recipe for MS Word:

  • download .zip file and unpack on your computer: Konfeo_ids-certs.zip
  • download the current list of attendees and rename the file to: ids-attendees-list.xlsx
  • replace .xlsx file enclosed in the package on a previously prepared list of attendees
  • open the file (IDs or certificates) and accept the SQL command
  • change the relevant information apart from merge fields and go to the Mailings menu
  • check if everything is ok (Preview results) and finally print documents (Finish & Merge – Print documents)

You have done IDs/certificate to the attendees of your event!

Category: Handling

You can use any mobile device (tablet, smartphone) with a QR code scanner to operate the check-in. Older devices require a code-scanning app, while newer devices have a scanner built into the camera. You don’t need to install additional applications if you can scan QR codes on these devices.

To start scanning tickets, log in to the reception app (check-in) in a web browser. Take a few simple actions:

  • log in to your Konfeo account on your computer/laptop and go to the appropriate event
  • open the Check-in menu
  • use the provided login and generated password to log in to the check-in app on your mobile devices

The principle of the app operation is straightforward:

  • open the code scanner on your device and scan the first ticket
  • the link from the QR code will open a web browser with the scan result
  • use the back button or gesture to return to the scanner
  • scan another ticket, etc.

That’s all—maximum efficiency with minimum configuration.

The recipe for changing the status is as follows: find the right person in the attendee’s list and click on the name. The attendee’s profile will open, where the following options will be available at the bottom of the screen:

  • Accept allows you to change the status from Present to Accepted;
  • Set ‘Waiting for payment’ allows you to change the status from Accepted to Waiting for payment.

That’s all.

Webhooks are automated messages sent from one app to another when something happens. They’re much like SMS notifications sent by your bank, e.g., when you receive payment. There is an action (payment) and a bank’s reaction (SMS). Webhooks work pretty much similarly.

This way, Konfeo can send a notification to your other app when someone registers for your free event or pays for a paid event (after the attendee’s status changes to accepted).

Notifications include: first and last name, email, event title, ticket/seat name, price and currency, info about additional attendees. The structure of webhooks is as follows:

{
    "type": "attendee_accepted",
    "attendee": {
        "id": 123,
        "name": "John",
        "surname": "Doe",
        "email": "john@doe.com"
    },
    "fee": {
        "price": 123.45,
        "currency": "USD"
    },
    "event": {
        "id": 234,
        "name": "Event name"
    },
    "group": {
        "id": 345,
        "name": "Group name"
    },
    "form_fields": [
        {
            "id": 45,
            "type": "text",
            "label": "Phone",
            "value": "123 456 789"
        },
        {
            "id": 46,
            "type": "text_area",
            "label": "Bio",

            "value": "L"
        },
        {
            "id": 50,
            "type": "check_box",
            "label": "Newsletter",
            "value": true
        },
        {
            "id": 51,
            "type": "check_box",
            "label": "Marketing",
            "value": false
        }
    ],
    "additional_attendees": [
        {
            "id": 124,
            "name": "Jane",
            "surname": "Doe"
        }
    ]
