Keeping track of your attendees is one of the most crucial tasks when hosting an event. Meetup offers tools to help you easily sort and manage your event attendees.
To access your attendee list, follow these steps in the Meetup for Organizers app.
- Go to your event homepage.
- Tap Going.
If the event has already ended, the link will say Went instead of Going.
Viewing your attendees list
Before your event starts, you can quickly look up any attendee and adjust details of their RSVP. Use the search bar at the top of the list to search for an attendee by name.
Sorting your attendees list
You can view a subset of your attendees or reorder your attendees list.
- Sort attendees alphabetically
- Filter attendees by host or bringing guests
- Most recent response - Sort attendees by their latest RSVP date
- First event - see who has RSVP’d for the first time
- View answers to an event question
Tap an attendee’s name to:
- Mark as Going or Not Going
- Mark as Paid or Unpaid for ticketed events
- Edit guest counts
- Add or remove as host
Enabling a waitlist
Set an attendee limit when you publish an event to activate a waitlist. When an attendee RSVPs to an event with full attendance, they’ll be automatically placed on the waitlist. A new tab will be available in the attendee list when someone is placed in the waitlist. In this tab, you’ll be able to view all waitlisted attendees, and add or remove them as needed.
Learn more about managing your event’s waitlist.
Managing your attendees before an event
Before your event begins, you can tap the …(three dots) icon in the top righthand corner of your attendees list.
A pop-up menu will appear where you may:
- Close or open RSVPs
- Edit guest limit
- Edit attendee limit
In the 24 hours before or after your event, you can keep track of event attendance in real time using the check-in feature.
