Updating guest lists

When you go to upload your guest list, you will need to include a "Barcode" column in order to assign a unique identifier to each guest. This can be as simple as assigning a guest a number like "1", "2", "3", etc, please note these barcodes must be unique per registration. Below is an example spreadsheet.


When you are matching your fields upon importing, you will match the "Barcode" field to "Barcode" in Boomset. It may automatically match this for you.

If you make edits to existing attendees OR adding new attendees to the list
1. Re-upload the list (with the barcode still associated) and any changes you've made in your attendee spreadsheet.
2. Re-upload the list with the new attendees added. Be sure to also assign them barcodes in case you need to make changes again to the list.


When you complete this, Boomset will show you the following message to confirm the changes you are making:


"2 Guests are ready to import" reflecting the 2 new attendees added to the list.
"17 Guests are ready to be updated" reflecting the attendee list that includes changes.

You will still see two guests lists imported: the original guest list and the new guest list with the changes. The guest list imported with the changes and 2 new attendees will reflect only the number 2, as this is how many new attendees were added. Note: If you choose to delete the list that was imported most recently the system will only remove the new attendees imported, it will not remove the changes associated with the updated attendees.
