The Performance Tab is used to create and manage some aspects of the performances that make up an event. Performance information cannot be added (and the tab will not be made available) until the: have both been entered and saved. If a play has already been set up you can access the Performance Tab at any time.

NOTE: the upper part of the window is only active if some performances are selected in the list. When performances are selected, clicking the buttons in the upper half of the window will change the settings in each selected performance.

For example:

  • Select 3 performances
  • Select (or de-select) allow to sell internet or another option
  • Those 3 performances will (or will not) be able to be sold online. The change is immediate.

Performance Email Reminder

Send Reminder You can indicate if you want an email reminder sent to patrons who purchase to a performance. This email can be customized to each event or performance by duplicating and editing a web page, or you can use a default one.
Reminder in Advance Time If you do want an email reminder sent for any performance, then you can indicate how far in advance of the performance it should be sent. This value is typed in weeks, days, hours, and minutes format. Example values are:
  • 6h - for 6 hours
  • 1d - for one day
  • 1w - for one week
  • 4w - for one month
  • 1h30m - for 1 hour 30 minutes
You can type the amount in all in minutes, or using the the format above, or use the clock icon to pick a date so that the system will calculate the actual number of minutes in advance for the reminder time.

Any ticket to the event bought closer to the performance than the email reminder time will receive an immediate reminder.

Single Seat Rules for Reserved Seating Maps

Single Seats not allowed Means that a patron selecting tickets online will not be able to make a seat selection anywhere in the map that would leave a single ticket. This option is designed to maximize revenue and is the recommended/default option.
Single seat checking disabled/relaxed Means that a patron can pick any seat they want and leave single seats on the map. This maximizes patron choice, so the patron could:
  • pick the middle seat out of three, or
  • a single in where there are two seats left.
  • The patron cannot, however, leave a single ticket between two others in their seat selection. (i.e. they can't pick every other seat).
The example to the right shows an example of what would be accepted using this rule.
