Do I need to create an EFT file each time I deposit an EFT Payment?

No. You can deposit EFT payments at any time. When you choose to create the file, Theatre Manager will automatically include all the EFT payments that have not been previously submitted for transfer.

Keep in mind that there are limitations to past and future-dated transfers. If the EFT payment falls out of the date range restrictions set by the bank when the EFT transaction is processed, it will be rejected by the bank. Your bank will notify you of such rejections.

Entry Zones: setting the order of entry for patrons

The order of entry is a way to help you manage the order of ingress of patrons into the venue. You may
  • want to seat people at the front middle section of the venue first, followed by aisle seats.
  • have a balcony where you can simultaneously seat people at the same time as the main floor
  • have a number of entrances where you scan tickets that let people fill in different sids of the venue without coming into contact with each other
