🚨This is a beta. There may be bugs!🚨

There are two scenarios where you may want to use our new dynamic attendees list features. 

  1. Allow your event attendees to create their own profile and add it themselves to the page
    There are scenarios where manually controlling the list is a burden, such as maintaining a list of all of your attendees. Here you can enable our Profile Adding setting to allow folks to add a profile they create themselves to the people list. 
  2. Allow people records added by you to be claimed (and changed) by your attendees
    A more complicated scenario is where you want to manually populate a list, but you do not have all the information you would like. Ideally, you could pre-populate the list and allow a user to update their own photo or contact info. With our person claiming setting, a user can navigate to an individual person record and "claim" it, by tapping the "This is me" button. This will replace the record you created with their profile.

How to enable a dynamic attendees list:

  1. Within the Yapp Editor, create a new People Page or go to an existing one
  2. Click the gear next to the page name
  3. From the page settings popover, click the "Add their own Profile" and/or "Claim a person added by and admin"
  4. Click Done
  5. When you're ready, publish your app!

How to add a profile

⚠️ Make sure you are using the latest version of the Yapp Mobile App!

  1. Open your app inside of the Yapp app
  2. Navigate to the people page that has Profile Adding enabled
  3. Tap the "Add my profile" button that is floating over the tab bar at the bottom
  4. If you have yet to fill out a profile, we will automatically bring up our profile editor and give you a chance to add some details

How to claim a profile

  1. Open your app inside of the Yapp app
  2. Navigate to the people page that has Person Claiming enabled
  3. Navigate to your Person record
  4. Tap the "This is me" button that is floating over the tab bar at the bottom
  5. If you have yet to fill out a profile, we will automatically bring up our profile editor and give you a chance to add some details

What does the profile editor look like?

We've broken it up into 4 parts: 1. Personal info, 2. Photo, 3. Contact info, and 4. Links. Everything here is optional, so a user can choose to expose as little or as much information about themselves as they are comfortable with

Current Limitations

Since this will be an early beta test, not all the features we plan on including will be present. 

  • This dynamic profiles require that the user have an internet connection to fetch up to date profiles. If you were able to load the page previously online, we will cache those results for offline use
  • Right now, there is no plans to allow you, the admin, to change an individuals profile.

What we're working on

  1. Profile Claiming: This will allow you to populate the people list with the basic information you already have. Then attendees will be able to "Claim" a profile and provide more information. such as a profile photo. 

What we're considering

If any of these things are important to you, please let us know!

  • Moderation: The ability remove a profile and for a users social posts to be approved before posting
