How to Bulk Upload Attendee Photos

  • Updated

Upload your attendee and speaker photos with one .zip file!

For this method, you will need the following items:

  • A folder containing attendee photos in the .jpg or .png format
  • A list of all attendee Barcodes

To retrieve attendee barcodes, navigate to Analyze --> Reports in the event admin portal. Click on "Create Report", select "Attendee Report" as the type, and hit "Create".

Then, in the report builder, use the "Add New Column" dropdown to add columns to the spreadsheet you will receive. You will want to include at least First Name, Last Name, and Barcode, but you can also include any other identifying information needed. When you're ready, click on "Export Report" in the upper right-hand corner to have the spreadsheet sent to your email.

Now, using the report, you can go back to the folder of photos and rename each file to the barcode of the corresponding attendee, followed by the file extension (e.g. 100.png, 200.png, etc.).

Zip the folder by right-clicking on it and hitting "Compress [folder name]" if you are on Mac, or "Send to" --> "Compressed (zipped) folder" if you are on Windows.

You can now go to Manage --> Import a Guest List in the Event Admin portal, and look for the second option saying "Upload a portraits/selfies .ZIP file". There is a sample .zip file here if you would like to use that as a reference point.

Click "Upload" and and select the .zip file from your file explorer. Please note that there is no confirmation screen, so the file will be uploaded and processed as soon as it's selected!
