If you want to know where your attendees are coming from — Facebook campaign, Instagram campaign or your own website, our Referral Code feature is here for you! You can see where the attendees are coming from based on the links they used to register. Hopefully, this may help you better understand your attendees!

It is very simple to set up a referral link for your event. Here is the detailed instructions on how to do so:

1. Go to your Event Dashboard

Dashboard

On your Event Dashboard, click on View Event on the top right corner, and in the dropdown menu, click on Show Event URL

 

2. Copy your Event URL

Event URL

Copy your Event Page URL.

 

3. Paste and Add your Referral Code
