Open access works on the same principles as closed access. The attendees are required to authenticate themselves with their email address. The difference is that with open access, the organizer does not have to collect the registration data of the participants and create a registration list, but instead, the participant registers himself when going through the check-in gate. This means that anyone can join the event.
💡 Use case
Open access can be used when the security of the event is not first priority.
The open access gate allows you to check that the email address entered by the participant is valid. This is useful if at the end of the event when sending newsletters, follow-ups, etc.
It is still possible to pre-register participants to facilitate their entry.
Although open access allows everyone to register, it is still possible to remove registrants from the list (only works if the participant tries to log in from a new device or browser).
It is very important for the organizer to have a PIN template ready. You can read more about it here.
