You can quick + easily create your matchmaking tags in the Admin panel by completing the followings steps:

- 2.Click on the blue button, 'Change tags'.

✅ Your first Matchmaking tag is created (repeat the steps to create more matching opportunities).
Please read the below carefully as it is crucial to the success of the matchmaking system and help your users get the most from the event.
Once a matchmaking tag is created in the Admin Panel, it appears as an interest option for the app users, it is then down to them to select the interests that apply to them.
Weighted matchmaking tags allow you to set a priority of who should receive more matches at your event. This allows you to differentiate which user groups or exhibitors will get more focus at the event.
Here's an example: You have 3 different tiers of sponsors at an event (Bronze, Silver, Gold). You as an event organiser want to ensure that the Gold sponsors receive the most matches. The Gold sponsor receives more matches and has higher traction of potential leads.
To set a weight to a matchmaking tag, you can complete the following steps:
- 1.From the Admin Panel, go to 'Matchmaking'.
- 2.Click on the blue button, 'Change Tags'.
- 3.Either create a new tag or edit an existing tag (all tags must be created before you can add the weight).
- 4.In the section 'Matching tags' type the name of another tag that you want to set the weight against.
- 5.Choose the weight of the tag between 1 and -1 (the higher the number, the more matches will be generated)
In the example below you can see that we have edited the Attendee matchmaking tag setting the weight of how many matches a Gold, Silver and Bronze Sponsor will receive. The Gold Sponsor is given a 1, Silver 0 and Bronze 0.5 this means Silver will receive fewer matches than Gold sponsors but more than Bronze sponsors.
There are two different ways of matchmaking users. Flick between the tabs below to find out how you can do this.
4. Review the number of matches and select 'Save to database' to notify users of their matches.
Note: At least 10 users must have registered their interests before you can connect users.
