Choose an attendee registration method

You can invite all participants to your Brella event by either sharing one open join code/link or a unique join code/link for each participant.

🗝️ The registration method refers to how attendees, speakers, sponsors, and admins join your event in Brella.

There are two types of registration at Brella:

  1. The Open join code will be accessible by anyone who has the open join link.
    *Great for public events.


    • Join URL: 
    • Join code: CODE123
  2. The Invite-Only (Unique join codes) will have to be created one by one for each participant.
    *Great for paid events.


    • Join URL:
    • Join code: UNIQUE-CODE

1. The Open Join URL/Join code

The event join code is the same join code for all event participants. You can create and edit the join code in the Details tab in the admin panel, and it will always be displayed in the Overview tab.

The benefits & cons of using this method are:

  • All the attendees will join with only one join code/link to the event.
  • Your event can be accessed by anyone who receives the join link/code; the access is not monitored.
  • This is a faster way to invite attendees to the event.
  • You can customize the URL. For more information, visit this page.
  • You can add participants to a Group and specify their attendance type by adding them to a group. 👉See how to move a member to a group.

⭐ Tip: When sending registration emails out, sending the whole open URL is better if you use the Open join code. Read more about this topic here.

2. The Unique Join URL / Join Code (Invite-only)

With this functionality, you can generate unique join codes for each attendee in Brella. This is the most secure way to give access to your event. 

You can generate unique join codes for all your event's participants by creating the join codes manually or with the CSV file option in the People tab > Invites.

The benefits & cons of using this method:

  • Attendees will access the event with a unique join code to determine each attendee's number of "seats." Each seat represents a ticket; once used to register, it will be used, just like a concert ticket. We explain to you how this works here.
  • 🚨 Note! You have to send the join codes through your email system. Brella doesn't send any emails out for the registration.
  • It's the best way to control the registration traffic in Brella for your event. If you have a strict attendee cap, use this registration method.
  • You can read more about unique join codes on how to use them for your event.
  • You can add participants to a Group and specify their attendance type when creating Invites. 👉See how to add members while creating invites.
⭐ Tip: When sending registration emails out, if you use the 'Open join code,' it's better to send the whole open URL and the Join Code. Read more about this topic here.
