Add a patron to your database through our iPad app. These patrons will not be updated into your database until the next time you sync the iPad.


Synchronises all of the information between the iPad app and your MyGuestlist account. You will need to perform a sync at the end of the night. 

Each section will be discussed according to it's heading in the application.


  • The Guestlist section is where you can view all of your lists on the current day (after you have synced the iPad)
  • Add Guestlist allows you to add a Guestlist via the iPad app instead of on the website. This is a fantastic way to add lists on the move.
  • Search Guestlists is a fast and efficient way to search your lists
  • All Guestlists displays how many lists you have on the night, as well as the total amount of attendees and how many of those people have arrived. By clicking on All Guestlists, all the attendees will be displayed in the Attendees section (including those who have arrived).
  • All Guestlists for today will be displayed under todays date. By clicking on these guestlists, the attendee section will display the patrons for these lists.
  • A 'Walk In' is just a person that you want to record for statistics. This person is added to the current Guestlist that you have selected. If you would like to keep walk-ins separate, it is recommended you create a new list called 'General' and add walk-ins to that.
  • Attendee + is where you can add attendees to the current list you have selected.
  • Search attendees is for searching in the current guestlist. If you would like to search all attendees, select 'All Guestlists' in the Guestlist section and then search for your attendee.
  • The area where you see a circle next to a persons name is where you can tick off an attendee as arrived. Touch the circle to have this applied to your Guestlist.
  • At the bottom you can see Attended, with the list of people below who have already arrived. You can un-tick these people and put them back in the unattended list by ticking the circle next to their names. This section also displays their arrival information - arrival time, price of entry, gender and rating.
