How would you recommend checking in participants (who have previously registered) at events so that those who attended have participant status changed from registered to attended? (And then, likely in a second step, those who didn't show have participant status changed to no-show). This seems so obvious- but I can't find it in the Civi documentation.
My thought is to use an advanced search with event name= [name], role = 'attendee' filters. After people have been checked off names when they come in to the event, use the 'update multiple contacts' feature. I created a profile with the field 'participant status', but it doesn't show up in the 'update multiple contacts' profile drop-down...and I'm wondering if this is even the best way to do this? Non-developer, just a user here. Thanks!
