FAQs: MY SQUADUP

  • Can you build me a custom webpage for my event?

Yes, but there is an associated cost. Contact sam@squadup.com to inquire.

  • How does the group chat work?

Anyone can use the event chat on the web to post comments or images. Within the app, you must be registered for an event in order to participate in chat. If you are, you can post images, video, text, and location.

  • How do I check people in at my event?

In the SquadUP iOS app:

Click on the Host tab in the bottom navigation bar. Click on your event. Click on the Check-In option. From here, you can

a. Tap on the name of your attendee, or tap the (+) next to the name of your attendee (for when your attendees have multiple guests) to check them in.

b. Use the built in camera QR scanner to scan and validate the QR codes on the tickets of your attendees.

If you have a Linea Pro 5 2D Scanner, you can connect the scanner to your iPhone 5/5s and use our app with the external hardware for ticket scanning / validation.

In the SquadUP Android App:

Click on the Host tab in the bottom-right menu popup. Click on your event. Click on the Check-In option. From here, you can

a. Tap on the name of your attendee, or tap the (+) next to the name of your attendee (for when your attendees have multiple guests) to check them in.
b. Use the built in camera QR scanner to scan and validate the QR codes on the tickets of your attendees.

  • Where is the content in the social gallery coming from?

Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter.

  • Can I edit my event-specific hashtag?

Yes. On the Create / Edit Event page, click the Customize section to expand. From there you can edit your hashtag, or turn it off entirely.

  • Can I edit my URL? What happens if I do?

Yes. On the Create / Edit Event page, click the Customize section to expand. From there you can edit your URL. If you do change your URL, your old URL will forward to the new URL automatically.

  • What are the ideal dimensions for my banner image?

For event banners, we recommend images that are 350px tall and at least 1000px wide. The minimum width is 1000px and height 350px. The more px wide, the better (ie 1600px wide is great).

We also recommend avoiding logos / text, because the image adjusts dynamically, based on screen size, and this can distort the text.

  • What are the ideal dimensions for my flyer?

Flyers can be any size, but we recommend high quality square images. An example would be 1000px by 1000px, or 600px by 600px.

  • Can I give permission to other users to manage my event page?

Yes, we allow you to have full control over co-host permissions. To add co-hosts and control co-host permissions, head to the Create / Edit Event page and expand the Customize section. You will see a field to enter a co-host’s name. Enter the name, and make sure to register the co-host if they are not already a SquadUP user.

After reigstering your co-host, you can grant them the following permissions: Add To Attending, Cancel Event, Check-in Guests, Contact Guests, Copy Event, Download CSV, Edit Event, Hide Co-host Name, Invite Friends, View Guests, View Funding/Charts, Refund guests, and View Sales Notifications.

  • Do you have Passbook functionality?

Yes, we do!

  • Does SquadUP sell data on my guests?

We value your privacy; we will never sell your data to a third party.

Yes, you can change the color of the banner text and flyer text in Step 1 of Create / Edit Event.
