How to use Session check-in tools to check-in attendees to sessions?

There're three ways admins can check-in attendees to sessions.

#1 Session Check-ins tool

Session Check-in tool allows event staff to check-in attendees to sessions. Simply select a session and check-in attendees to the session by clicking on Check-in switch. See screenshot below.

If you want certain volunteers to be able to access the Session Check-in tool only, go to Roles & Access Control (only super user has access to this tool), create a custom role "Check-in Staff" and set access control for this role to Session Check-in tool only. 
Once roles are created and access controls are set, you just need to create admin accounts for your volunteer (if not created already), assign this newly created role and send them a welcome email to set their password and be able to log in to their dashboard.

#2 Session check-ins using QR code

Additionally, a volunteer can check-in attendee using the built-in Session Scanner in the Dryfta event app. The scanner would scan the QR code in the attendee's badge and then checks in the attendee if there're seats available in the session and if the attendee is allowed to check-in to this session. 

For volunteers to be able to view the Session scanner, they need to have an Admin account. Using the admin login credentials, volunteer can log in to the app and view the Session Scanner under the App Navigation. 

#3 Checking-in individual attendee to a session

Go to Contacts, click on the name of the attendee to go to its detail view and under the Schedule tab, click on "Add Sessions to user schedule & Check-in user to sessions" button. See screenshot below.

Where to find the Checked-in attendees?

Attendees who have checked-in to a session would be saved and displayed in that session's list of checked-in attendees. See screenshot below.

Attendees on Waiting list

Attendees who tried checking-in after the seats were all occupied would be added to a waiting list and would be checked-in whenever someone checks out or when more seats are made available. All those waiting attendees would be listed under Waiting list for that session.
