Use sections to define tables, a different location in a venue, set different price points or capacities. With sections you can link them to different dates, prices or even determine if they will be visible or hidden.
Sections are used in a number of different ways. However, most events will only ever have one section. When creating your event, you will naturally have one section created. After this, you can add additional sections. Sections can be either seated or spaces.
Consider using sections for:
- Defining different locations on your venue i.e. dress circle vs stalls.
- Setting different price points for a location i.e. premium seats vs standard seating.
- Defining limited capacities i.e. setting up tabled events.
- When using merchandising with seated events.
Each section will have a defined capacity (see seat/space) and can have a different price point if required.
As a section reaches a capacity of 20 or less, you will find a counter shows on the booking screen so that your patrons have a clear idea of how many places are still available. When your section's capacity is exhausted, the section will then show as sold out on the booking screens.
Sections can be closed or marked as hidden or as sold out via pricing schema.
From within your event and sections, you can add a new section. Each section must have a name and be set to be either a seated (theatre style seating) or general admission (space) and have a specified capacity.
- Each section must have a unique name.
- Sections will order when booking alphabetically based on their name.
- When adding a section, if the capacity, type and price are the same, you can copy from the previous to make adding faster.
- The description can be left blank or used to add details about that section (i.e. price, upper stairs without a lift, restricted view seats, table captain name etc).
If a section has a different price point, these can be linked via pricing schema.
You can see the bookings on a section via the Availability Report or via selecting your event on the dashboard events and seat / space.
