**Useful tips**
  • When you create the integration, pre-existing attendees on Eventbrite event will not sync into CrowdComms dashboard (CMS). So please ensure you create the integration prior to registrations on Eventbrite starting.
  • ONLY the delegate’s First name, Surname and Email are automatically synced through to CrowdComms dashboard (CMS), all other information needs to be set up using Custom fields mapping.
  • You can add as many custom fields as you wish, as long as the fields in Eventbrite are also Custom fields.
  • Eventbrite Custom field can only be linked to a CrowdComms Custom field or a Person Field.
  • Syncs from Eventbrite to CrowdComms dashboard (CMS) are instantaneous.
