  • Classrooms
    • B100
    • B101
    • B102

If a person doesn't fit the filters of the area, they will be grayed out, and you will not be able to add them to the area. To assign the person to the area, either adjust the filters on the area or change the information on the registration.

Auto Assign Attendees

If you have lots of attendees, and you've set your filters up appropriately, go to the Unassigned tab, and then click Auto Assign to fill your areas with attendees matching the filters.

The auto assign will account for filters first, and then it will consider those who are eligible for multiple areas. Choose the way you want attendees to be assigned to areas.

  • Waterfall will fill the area to complete capacity before moving to the next area.
  • Balance will make sure each area is has a similar number of attendees.

Change Area

You can change the assigned area from the All Attendees tab or from the area.

If you want to change the area a person is assigned to, click the area and choose a new one.

If a person doesn't fit the filters of the area, they will be grayed out, and you will not be able to add them to the area. To assign the person to the area, either adjust the filters on the area or change the information on the registration.

Unassign from Area

To unassign someone from the area, click Unassign.

The person will be moved back into the Unassigned tab until you assign them to a new area.
