Venues & Halls

Venue and hall is where the event is hosted. Normally the Venue is the building. E.g. The opera house, inside the house there are multiple halls e.g. The great stage, the small stage, the back stage etc. In a venue, address information and geographical location are defined. In a hall, number of seats are defined.

To create a hall, navigate to Administration - Venues - Hall and click Add Hall.

The hall needs a Name, an Abbreviation, to be connected to the correct Venue, set Number of tickets (hall capacity) and Configuration name. It is also possible to set an admin name, only visible in Box Office for administrators. 

In the tab Configurations, you can edit the name of created configurations and delete them. A configuration will be deleted when the switch is set to Yes and the user clicks Save.

In the Entrance tabs, entrances can be created and that can be connected to seats in the hall view. It is also possible to change names of already created entrances.

There is a dedicated tab for Translation of the Venue name.

Note!

  • Backdrop image is only used for numbered halls.
  • If Is numbered is set to Yes (only for numbered halls), it is possible to set if seat numbers should be shown on the seat in BoxOffice sales view or not.

Add seat notice

A seat notice is visible in box office sales view, in the buying process online and on the ticket. Add it by clicking Edit, inputting a notice (e.g. "restricted view") and clicking Save.

Change price zone and entrance

In the same view it is possible to change Price zone and Entrance on selected seats. This is done in the same way as you add a seat notice. 

If you want to add a price zone in an already created event, you would first change it in the sales view, then navigate to edit event (Administration - Events - Dates or by holding the ctrl key and clicking the Edit button), go to Hall & prices and add a new price to the newly created price zones. 

NOTE! It is not possible to select seats in a price zone that don't have a price connected to it.

Remove seats

The last thing you can do in the hall view is to permanently remove seats from the event. These seats cannot be created again when removed so in most cases it makes more sense to block them instead of deleting them.

Copy or create new configuration

It is possible to create a new configuration from the changes made above or copy them to other configurations or events.

Copy configuration

Navigate to sales view and make the desired changes. Choose if all seats should be copied (other event specific changes will be override) or if you only want the copy to apply for specific seats, mark those seats.

Image_2020-10-28_kl._13.15.37.png

  • Choose what to copy: Choose what settings that should be copied.
  • Choose where to copy: Choose which events that the settings should be copied to.

Create new configuration

Image_2020-10-28_kl._13.17.20.png
