Creating a Control House

A control house is used in conjunction with a season package to set the favorite seats of your subscribers. Each season must have a control house for each year the season package is used.

    A performance needs to be created for each performance code in the season package. For example, if the season package contains performances on 1-FRI and 1-SAT, then control house performances need to be created to match those.

  9. Once the performance has been created, select it on the Performance tab, and turn off the options to sell the event.

    This will prevent tickets to the event from being sold.

  10. Copy the pricing and promotion structure from one of the events in the package to the control house.

    If all performances in the event are the same price as the control house, one performance can be copied. If there is different pricing for each performance, then the control house events will need to match that pricing.

  11. The event can now be closed and used as a control house in a season package.
