How to create a “holding” show for paid tickets that will be exchanged at a later date

Sometimes a patron would like to change their tickets to a different show but doesn’t know what date or show they would like in exchange. This will most often occur in cases of family emergency or unexpected cancellation of a show.  

In a case like this it is better to move the patron’s tickets to a holding show so that the income from their purchase is not counted under the wrong show or accidentally counted twice after they move.  

  • To set up a holding, go to Show | Utilities | Add a new show
  • Make sure to name this show with a year and a title that will be easy for your box office personnel to identify.  

  • If you have the same prices throughout your season (i.e. every A price category is $25, every B is $20) then you can copy run of show prices from another show in your season. 
  • If your price categories are not the same, you can either copy run of show prices, and the sales exchanged would be out of balance until moved into the new show.  
  • OR you can enter as many sets of price codes into the run of show prices in the holding show so that every price code for the season is represented. This way the sales transferred into the holding show will always be in balance.  The simplest way is to copy and paste the entire selection of price categories.
  • Click Add this show.
    • You can fill out the theatre and location fields, but it’s not necessary because this show will only be seen by box office staff.
  • Click Add Date.
    • We recommend that the date you choose is the last date of whenever your exchanges will be valid.  
    • In this example, the exchanges are only able to be exchanged through the end of the year 2020. So the date will be set as 12/31/20 and the time will be set as 11:59 PM. 

  • Click Add date and time.
  • Click Edit date.
  • If you use a seating chart for your shows, use a seating chart for your holding show. It doesn’t need to be the same seating chart as a normal show.
  • In most cases, it is better to make a seating chart that is a block (usually more seats than your normal seating chart).  
  • Attach that seating chart to your show by clicking Use a seating chart then select Yes to create the chart.
  • Select your seating plan from the list and click OK.

  • Select Run of show prices 

  • If you copied run of show prices from another show, this window will contain prices.  
  • If not, then you will need to Add a price and fill out each individual price category until all your price codes for the season are represented.  

  • This show is now ready to be sold. You can simply exchange already purchased tickets into this show and then move the tickets from this holding show into whatever show and date you choose later.
