Snafflz does not focus on selling tickets at the moment nor does it take any commission of tickets sold. However you can add a concession price for each guest and collect the fee directly at the entrance when you check-in your guests.
The Snafflz web service is running in all common browsers having the latest version installed.
We recommend mobile app users to install iOS10 for better performance and to avoid printing and synchronization issues. Older devices running on iOS9 like iPad mini (1st generation), iPad (2nd/3rd generation) and iPhone 4S are not recommended.
You can use as many tablets (i.e. iPads), smartphones and computers for check-in and data capture as you need - for no extra charge.

Only available for subscribers and Pro 1500 users.
Switch on the VIP notification functionality in your Snafflz mobile app. You find the switch in the sidebar menu.

Press "Download CSV" or "Print" in the "Guest List View" of the Snafflz web app. The CSV file includes all guest data: name, company, email address, check-in data, the info gathered via your custom data fields, VIP attribute, etc.
The data grids you see on screen are the ones that will be printed. In the "Data Fields" window you can set which data fields should be visible.
The master list (control list) is our contacts database feature. It's your pool of guest data. Each person in the master list counts as a contact.
No. The master list is not a guestlist. Hence it is not possible to check contacts on it. A check-in is always connected to an event guestlist.
You can filter the master list, add & import & delete individual contacts or export it just like your guestlists.
You can select and copy names to an existing guestlist or create a new guestlist with the names.

The Snafflz web app provides a convenient interface to create and customize your registration page.
Press "Create new registration page". This opens up a new registration view with some of the fields already filled out for you.
One of the most important things about event registrations is the deadline. Once the deadline is reached the event registration page is closed for further registrations. After the deadline the Snafflz system automatically feeds the successful registrants (hence an allowed number of guests) into your event guest list.
In order not to exceed your final guestlist's size go to the "Registrations" tab in your Snafflz web app and set the field "No. of RSVPs (including guests)" to the desired amount.
This still permits an unlimited number of RSVPs coming in in order to capture as much data as possible during the registration period. However, when the registration deadline is reached only the allowed number of names will be automatically added to your guest list. This works on a first-come-first-served basis (eg. for 100 available spots, only the first 100 names registered will be added to your guest list, receiving a final confirmation email).
Snafflz has also collected the rest of the RSVPs which did not make it onto the guest list. These names are available by "Download RSVPs". Of course you can manually amend your guest list any time.
Click the "Choose Questions" button to customize the registration form. In the popup window you can select the fields visible on your registration page. You can also set which ones should be mandatory. If you would like to collect the same information from a guest's companion tick "Enable questions for companions".
If you tick "Set registration private" in the "Registrations" tab and set a password, the registration page will require the user to enter this password on the registration page. This way you can ensure only the right people register for your event.
The default sender email address is the email address of the user who created the event. If you would like to change it just fill the new email address in the field "Change sender email" in the "Registrations" tab and click "Verify". For security reasons a verification email is sent to this new email address. Follow the instructions to complete the process.
When a person registers for your event Snafflz will send out an automatic confirmation email to this person. This email confirms the successful registration but is not the final confirmation ensuring access to the event.
For Pro 1500 and subscription plan customers, this confirmation email can be disabled.
Click the "Move off list" buttons in the "Registration" tab in the Snafflz web app. Blocked RSVPs are not on the guest list but can be downloaded. This feature is only available while the registration is running.
You can upload JPG, GIF or PNG files. If the image is larger than 600 x 900 pixels, it will be resized and converted. File size limit is 1 MB. If your upload does not work, try a smaller picture.
The image will be displayed on the top left of the registration page.
Before publishing your registration page you can preview the design and functionality of the page by clicking the "Preview" button.
If you are satisfied with your registration page you can publish it by clicking "Create registration page". If you wish to do some changes after, just update the settings in the "Registrations" tab and click "Save".
The Snafflz e-invitation feature provides the easiest way to invite your guests and have their RSVPs synced in the guest list. It goes with all the info you need to share about the event (name, date, time, venue, image) and allow guests to reply within the invitation. All confirmations go straight to the guest list, so it is always updated.
Press the "Invitations" button in the "Guest List View" in the Snafflz web app to send a custom e-invitation to your guests.
The email recipients can 'RSVP' or 'Decline' directly in the email. The current state of the invitations is shown in the invitation status in the "Guest List View", in the "Guest Details View" and in the "Invitations" tab on the tablet.
Yes. It is possible to use our default email invitation template and customize the design of the message body easily with our rich text editor. You are able to insert many variables (e.g. the QR code, any guest data field, ...), upload an image, add HTML code if you already have your own templates and much more.
When you upload an image, it’s nice to see it well displayed in the actual email your guests will receive. To ensure this, please follow these guidelines: • Templates are designed for a maximum width of 600 pixels in width. Snafflz will automatically size your images to fit into this limit, so it is recommended to upload correctly and avoid compression; • Resolution should be 72dpi; • Formats can be JPEG or PNG; • Web images should be saved with the RGB color profile or mode; • Snafflz recommends keeping size files less than 1MB. Larger files load slowly in your guest’s mailboxes; • Avoid adding too many images in the template. This can lead to messages landing in SPAM folders.
Yes, via the guest list’s “Filter” option. Just filter by an invitation status.
Yes. The sender name and email address can be changed for each message template. The sender email can be specified in the invitation editor window and is saved to a message template (upon verification).
By default, your messages are sent from your user account email or your set global sender email address.
“gmail” and “yahoo” email addresses get substituted by the default @snafflz.com email address to avoid spam detection and blocking of email messages.
Yes. Press the grey round "Email statistics" button in guest list view to download statistics about sent, not sent, clicked and spam report emails. This feature is not available for Free Taster, Light and Pro 500 plans.
Snafflz allows you to create and publish a landing page that can be linked to your e-invitations. The RSVP button in the email links to that landing page and guests can enter additional information (i.e. companions). All information added by them is reflected in the guestlist instantly.
A landing page is a registration page. If the user clicks on the RSVP button, he will be redirected to the page. The name and email data of your guests are already pre-filled in the registration form. Any other information you would like to add can be set in the "choose questions" window of the "Registrations" tab.
Only you own your data. Once you delete an event or name, all relevant data is deleted from our system. We guarantee the highest privacy standards, including SSL data encryption (the same as used for electronic banking).
