Click on the ID button, click on Dates, Times and Prices at the venue the audience you wish to email is attending, click on the performance Details… button and click Email Attendees. You can message  all audience members and add an attachment here if needed.

 

Using the door tool

 

When you are ready to share the door tool with front of house staff so they can check in attendees – go to the Events tab in the management dashboard and filter for the event. Click on the ID button, click on Dates, Times and Prices at the venue the audience you wish to check in is attending, click on the performance Details… button and click Door Tool. You will see this pop-up:

 

 

First, stop sales a suitable time before the performance begins. This will prevent any more tickets being sold through the Festival’s online box office and ensure you or your venue know how many tickets you or your venue have available to sell on the door. Sales will normally be stopped automatically 10 minutes after the start time of your performance.

 

Second – admitting the audience – You or your venue should always check audience members have a valid ticket. In some regions, it is a legal requirement to know how many people are in the audience at any time. Eventotron’s door list and checkin tool can help you with this.

 

There are three options to launch the door list and check-in tool:

  1. Click Go! To open the door list and check-in tool on your desktop
  2. Scan the code to launch the door tool on your smartphone
  3. Email your front of house staff with a link (input email addresses with commas between)

 

Once the door list and checkin tool is launched you will see this:

 

 

Agree to the terms and conditions

 

 

You can activate QR reader to scan people’s tickets and automatically check them in.

 

You can print the doorlist

 

You can search the list by name or ticket ID number and hit Check-in next to the attendees details

 

The list automatically refreshes every 60 seconds, but you can hit refresh list if you need to.

 

Artist ticket sales view

 

To allow artists / event managers to see their ticket sales, the Venue Finder must be visible in Info Collection. The artist will see their sales in the same way as the festival/season manager – in Dates, Times and Prices. Here is the artist’s view:

 

If the ticket buyer consents to the artist receiving their information the name and email address field will be populated. If not then the personal information of the ticket buyer will not be available for the artist to view. (You can override this and choose to always show audience contact details to artists in SSBO – Box Office tab, Options flip Always show audience contact details to artists to YES. Do be aware of data protection laws when enabling this).
