Sometimes your event will warrant simple, quick ticketing. You won't want to collect a lot of information from your attendees and therefore want an easy way for attendees to pay and signup. On the event setup side, you won't have to manage much at all.
Tickets allow event hosts (you) to check-in attendees manually (using a checklist we generate) or automatically, using a QR scanner (which you can download for free on any app store).
SETTING UP TICKETS
Our ticket form tool is very simple and easy to get the hang of. There are a few key sections on the page, which all you will need in order to setup simple ticketing for your event.
Let's quickly dive into each:
Use this function to set the overall number of tickets you'd like to sell at your event.
SIMPLE FORM OPTIONS
This function let's you choose which information you'd like to gather from your attendees. Think of this section like a mini version of the main registration Form Builder. Any information you gather from the form will show up in your attendees' Details panel (accessed through your main event dashboard).
FORM BACKGROUND IMAGE
Click the link and you'll be taken to the main Form Builder, where you can set a background image to your ticket form to add some personality.
LINK & GUIDE
The last 2 functionalities in the Ticket Form tool are quite useful. One let's you grab a shareable link directly to your ticket form (that you can promote on your various digital channels). The other just provides a guide on using a QR scanner to check people into your event.
TICKETS ON THE DASHBOARD
Just as setting up tickets is simple in Eventsquid, so is tracking them. On your dashboard, you can quickly access useful metrics on your ticket sales.
Click into an event on your dashboard and push the purple Tickets button on the far right of the event's panel. Below, a ticket dashboard will appear, revealing quicksales metrics and full access to all individual ticket sales.
If you click the black Show Details button on any individual sale, it will reveal a information about that particular attendee's purchase. Check it below:
From here, you can alter ticket purchase quantities, check attendees in (this is a manual way to do it) and make sure they have paid their balance.
Additionally, if you click the Reports & Printouts button on the event dashboard, you can access a list of your attendee tickets in a dedicated report (called "Retail Ticket Detail").
From here, you can also alter purchases, reprint/re-email attendee tickets, mark attendees as "paid" and more.
After you setup ticket registration for your event, make sure to test the workflow to confirm this style of registration will work for your event.
