Event Attendees Self Check-in capability
We would like the capability to create a simple webpage that allows event attendees to enter their email address, or any other field we define (i.e., Member ID). System finds the event registration for that contact and checks them in to the event. This self-serve check-in feature is available only if the attendee has paid the appropriate attendance fee.
This would relieve work from our registration people at events. We would set up two or three computers at the registration table and allow attendees to check themselves into the event.
This would also encourage pre-registration and payment for events. We are having issues with many walk-ins as people are not pre-registering for events.
These event attendances would show up on each contacts events page in their contact profile.

I'd love to see a mechanism to allow members to quickly and easily check themselves in to an event without going through the whole registration process.
For regular meetings this would improve the speed up the entry process and provide a means of tracking attendance.
For events that are open to the public it would be a nice perk for members to be able to get in more quickly. Either a quick scan of their mobile member card at a kiosk or clicking on a button that is only visible to members in their mobile app when they arrive at an event so they can proceed past the registration table.

Alternatively, allow members to check themselves in in the Events section of their profile on their own smartphones
