Importing Theatre Map Files from other Venues

Subscribe to Syndicate

If your organization performs at another venue that also uses Theatre Manager, it may be helpful to import the Pricing Map they use rather than to build a map from scratch. You can edit the Pricing map later to reflect your Price Zones, however the graphic itself along with all the seats and their positioning can be imported into your database using this method. This can save you considerable time over creating a new Pricing Map. Please feel free to contact Arts Management Systems if you need assistance in discussing sharing the file with the other venue.

The map you wish to import must have been exported out of the neighbouring organization's database using the .tmm (TM Map Interchange) format.

To export a map using the .tmm format, perform the following steps:

  1. Open the Pricing Map that you want to save as a .tmm file.
  2. Click the button.
  3. Choose "TM Map Interchange Format (.tmm)" from the menu
  4. Save the file to a thumb drive or other location where you can retrieve it easily

To import a Theatre Map file, you would perform the following steps.

  1. Create a venue (if you do not already have one) for the imported Pricing Map.
