Setting up Tickets
Tickets can be added and edited into RTS using the ticket price category module. This page does not cover how to determine when tickets are available. See Ticket Class Rules.
This section goes over adding ticket categories and how to add tickets to those categories.
- Navigate to
Setup -> Tickets -> Price.
- Create a Price Category by highlighting "General" and selecting "Edit".
(Note: Price Categories are where you store tickets.)
(Note: RTS recommends utilizing as few Price Categories as possible. New Price Categories can be added by selecting "Add." If you would like to create a new category with the same time tickets, select "Clone". This will clone the settings of an existing category.)
(Note: The Setup Ticket Price Category window is not for adding tickets, it is for adding categories of tickets.)
(Note: All tickets in RTS must be in a Price Category.)
- After selecting "Edit", the Setup Ticket window will populate.
- When editing a ticket category, select "Add Ticket" and designate the name of your item accordingly.
- Enter your price (without tax). If you would like to add tax (which will be included in the price on the selling screen), enter in the Tax 1 and Tax 2 fields accordingly.
- Modify your ticket names if needed.
Note: The RTS Selling screen allows for 7 characters. If your name is longer than 7 letters, consider shortening your name for the Employee Screen and the Ticket Print Screen. (i.e., change Senior to Sr.)
- Repeat steps as needed, and choose "Save and Close".
Setting Up Tickets Explained:
Ticket- Lists the tickets in your database. If you are configuring tickets for the first time, this field will be blank until tickets are added.
Show Disabled Tickets- If checked, tickets that were previously deleted will appear in the list
Move Up- RTS determines the ticket order on the selling screen, based off how they are listed in the Ticket Window. If you would like for a ticket to appear higher on your list, highlight the ticket and select Move Up
Move Down- Moves your ticket down in the list. This list determines the order of appearance on the selling screen.
Database- Determines your ticket name in the database
Employee Screen- Designates the ticket name that will appear on your selling screen. The ticket should be modified to less than 7 characters to fit on the selling screen.
Ticket Print Name- Displays how the ticket will print on the tickets. Characters are also limited for the ticket, so modify your ticket name accordingly if needed.
Internet Name- Display name for online ticket sales.
Kiosk Name- Ticket name displayed on the kiosk
Kiosk Description- Description that appears under the ticket on the kiosk
RtsApp Name- Ticket name displayed on your RTS App
RtsApp Description- Description that appears under the ticket on your RTS App
Price (no tax)- Price of ticket before tax.
Tax 1- First tax to be calculated. Will appear as a combined amount with your Price amount.
Tax 2- An additional filed for tax
Enabled Employee- If checked, the ticket will display on the Employee Selling Screen
Enabled Kiosk- Determines if the ticket will appear on the kiosk
Enabled Internet- Designates if the ticket will be available for purchases made online. For example, a Pass would be enabled for Employee usage, but not for sales made online.
Reward Points- Designates how many points will be earned for the loyalty program.
Enabled Web API- This determines if the ticket type will be available for sales for third party sites that use the API, such as movie pass. If this is checked, all sites that you use on the API will be available for you to determine if the ticket is available for sale on that website.
Link Item Options- Links a concession item with a ticket. This can be used to have an item associated with the ticket or discount the price of a ticket while still reporting to the boxoffice correctly.
Item- Choose the item that will be linked to your ticket.
Item Amount- Choose how many concession items will be linked.
Item Price- Designates the price of the ticket.
