Click on the 'Create Event' button to create your event. You can find this at the top right of the dashboard.
When you create an event, there are 3 steps you go through:
- Type of event
- Event details
- Ticket management
Step 1: Type event
You choose the type of event in step 1. You have the following choices:
- General Admission: This is an event without fixed rows and seat numbers.
- Seated: This is an event with fixed rows and seat numbers. GUTS will have to build the seating map and add it to your account.
- Livestream: This is a livestream event. The ticket buyer does not receive a QR code that can be scanned, but instead he/she can watch the live stream.
Step 2: Event details
In this step, you enter the general information of your event such as title, times, location. All information entered on this page, can be viewed on the sales page under the info button.
You can always add/change the information later. Read more here.
Step 3: Ticket management
Here you can create your first ticket shop.
This shop is called Default, and is immediately available until the end of the event. Per account (phonenumber) you can buy 10 tickets. You can choose 'Edit' to change this:
You can create your first tickets in your shop.
To create a ticket, you need a pool. We use pools to manage the capacity. You can read all about pools here.
When you have your pools, you can get started with your tickets and setting up your shop. Here you will find all the manuals about managing your shop.
Seated event: When you create a seated event, your pools are automatically created based on the seatingplan. There are also tickets in the shop right away. You can open them and adjust them.
Save as draft
When your first shop has been created (or if you want to continue later) you click 'Save as draft'. As long as your event is a draft-event, you can use the preview function in the shop. You can view your event and buy tests tickets to make sure everything is set-up correctly. This preview is exactly how your visitors will experience the flow, except for the payment which, in preview mode, uses a test payment-provider so you are able to buy test-tickets. Test-tickets will stay in your account, but won’t affect any actual sales and statistics. They will disappear when you publish the event.
Is your event and the shops as desired? Then you can publish your event.
By publishing, your event will be live and you can start selling from the desired date.
Under the tab 'Management' you can press 'Save and Publish'.
