How to: Utilize Attendee Profiles

Learn more about attendees and create networking opportunities.  

Attendee Profiles allow organizations to gain more information about their attendees through expanded fields and sections. Profiles also enable other social features such as the Attendee Directory and Direct Messaging for additional interaction and engagement through your event.

Enabling Attendee Profiles 

To enable attendee profiles, first open the registration page in the Sitebuilder tool to edit your registration settings. Registration must be on to enable profiles. 

Then, toggle on 'Profile info'. 

Toggle on 'Avatar' if you would like attendees to be able to optionally upload a profile photo. We recommend toggling this on if you are using the Directory feature.
