Does the app need to be connected to wifi to scan?
It doesn't need to be connected to scan, but it does need to be connected to sync the data. So you'll want to add the app key when you're online. If you go offline, make sure the app reconnects before you log out of it so the data can be synced to your reporting.
What is the recommended internet speed our venue should have to successfully sync data?
The more the better! But a solid minimum (per device speed) is 5-10 Mbps down and 3 Mbps up.
If the venue doesn't have wifi, what's an alternate set up we could use?
Wifi is a general term. Hotspots, or a native ISP provided network, can suffice as long as it matches the speed above. We don't recommend offline ticket scanning unless necessary.
What if the internet goes out?
Continue scanning, don't power cycle the device. Don't log out of the app. When connectivity is back, do a force sync (under settings in the app) to ensure that all the data is updated.
Will a scanner with a data plan work?
Phones with data plans can work great! Just ensure you have 2 bars of signal or greater onsite to ensure reliability.
How many devices can be used at once?
As many as you need! Just make sure they are all using the same app key.
