Unlocking the Power of Seat Holds, Access Codes and Password Protect

Unlocking the Power of Seat Holds, Access Codes and Password Protect

We're thrilled to introduce two groundbreaking features that will transform the way you manage your events: Seat Holds + Access Codes and upgraded Password Protect.

With these additions, your event planning experience just got a whole lot smoother, more secure, and incredibly flexible. Let's dive in and discover how these game-changing features can elevate your event management.

Seat Holds + Access Codes

For events with an added seating plan, Seat Holds make managing seats at your event even easier - letting you to put seats on hold for specific guests, like season ticket holders or VIPs.

You have the flexibility to create Access Codes individually or upload a bulk list of patrons and their assigned seats. Once you've generated these unique codes, you can communicate them to your ticket purchasers easily.

Alternatively, if you’re running an event where you’d like to reserve blocks of seats for certain attendees, Seat Holds makes this easy. You can easily setup special access areas for VIPs - and even setup separate pricing for these guests to maximise your ticket revenue.

Seat Holds integrates seamlessly with your regular open public sales. Once your Seat Holds have expired, tickets will be open to the public to book without requiring any additional set up from you.

Password Protect

Our upgraded password protect feature allows you to safeguard your event against unauthorised bookings. Instead of letting just anyone reserve tickets, you can now upload or individually create passwords, which you can provide to specific patrons or groups.

You can also set limits on how many tickets patrons can purchase, which is ideal for scenarios like membership renewals.

The best part? You have full control and can switch passwords on or off at any time. You can also create booking windows, enabling you to sell tickets in waves. This means you can offer first access to members, followed by email subscribers, and then the general public, all with ease.
