  • In essence, a streaming event with no set date is like a season gift certificate. The customer pays in advance for a certain number of tickets that are valid for a pre-determined amount of time.
  • Once the event is streaming, you send the a link to your patron so they can watch it.
  • Go to Show | Utilities | Add a new season package.
  • The Add a new season ticket window will appear.

  • In the Title field, type the name of the streaming event you are adding. For the best sale screen appearance, restrict this entry to 26 – 30 characters.
  • In the Abbreviation field, type a shortened name for the show. This entry will identify the show on reports. The field is restricted to 15 characters and will auto-format the characters entered as uppercase.
  • Click the Create package button.

  • In the Edit show mode, click the Season prices button.
  • In the window that appears, click the Add a price button.
  • In the Detail for price category window, you have a number of options.
    • If you want to choose a different price category letter than the default one, click the ellipsis next to the letter and change it.
    • You can select a Standard price or Pay what you can.
    • You can set on and off sale dates. If you want to set an off sale date, check the Used box first, then set your off sale date and time.

Variables on the Season ticket information tab that may pertain to streaming events include:

  • Event type. Choose an event type for reporting and marketing purposes. You can create reports to see who purchased tickets for a certain kind of event and let them know about upcoming similar events.
  • GL codes. In the General Ledger Code field, type a key word to describe the department. Later, you can run reports by the general ledger entry. The purpose of this report is to group the shows and their money into a list for each department.
