To accommodate Social Distancing guidelines, an automatic Seat buffer has been added. This will allow you to set a number of seats to buffer at Setup -> Tickets -> Options. For example, if the buffer is set to 2 seats, then when a customer selects their seats online, at a kiosk, or at the selling screen, 2 seats will be blocked off to the right and left of the customer's selected seats, assuming they are not next to an aisle.
