Use “anti-social” seating to make one buyer purchase all tickets in a group (ie. at a table, in a row, etc.)

(Last updated on: May 28, 2021)

Sometimes, you have a situation where, for example, there are four seats at a table or six in a socially distanced group, and if someone buys ONE ticket in that group, they are required to buy ALL tickets in that group.

First, you will need a seating plan that has table or group seating (cabaret seating). Here is an example of what it looks like.  (In this case, we’re using tables.)

We call this feature anti-social or antisocial seating.

NOTE: This operation works in Webtix. Since personnel sell tickets in-house with Wintix, they will manually select each seat or do a group select by doing a right click on the mouse to select a group of seats.

IMPORTANT: each group of seats that will be one ‘pod’ that will be bought together must have a unique section name in the seating PLAN. The name must be different from all other groups or pods. If the SECTION field is blank, antisocial seating will not work.

Take a look at these two screen shots. You can see they have unique section names for each group of seats.

  • To set up your performance for anti-social seating, go to Show | Edit a show.
  • Click the Edit chart button on the Options tab.

  • Click on the Data button.

  • Check the Use antisocial seating button.

  • When someone clicks on one seat in Webtix, Webtix autoselects all the seats at that table or in that group.

  • When the patron goes to the ticket selection tab, they will have the opportunity to select different price levels if they are available.

  • Here is an example of what the shopping cart would look like.
