Creating Events in Presence

Clubs can create events, which are automatically displayed on their homepage or when searching for events through the WCSU Presence homepage. Presence Checkpoint, available on the App Store and Google Play Store, can be used to check in event attendees. CSI also offers card readers to swipe WCSU IDs and check in event attendees. Events on Presence track the total number of attendees, as well as analyze their demographics.

To create an event:

     1. Use the event tab.

2. Click the  button in the top right corner of the page.

3. Fill out the required information! You can also take notes and keep track of a budget, which is private information only visible by club administrators and CSI staff.

4. When you’re finished, click the  button to send the event to CSI staff, who will review and approve the event. Once approved, the event appears on your club/organization homepage, visible to anyone who visits Presence.

5. During your event, use the Presence Checkpoint app to check in guests. You’ll need the event PIN number, which can be found under the events tab.

Type the PIN number into the Presence Checkpoint app, then type in guests’ student ID numbers to check them in.

CSI offers ID swipers that connect via headphone port to a smartphone. If your phone doesn’t have a headphone port, make sure you have an adapter that converts from your phone’s charging port to a headphone port.

After your event is over, check back on the events page to see how many people came!
