If user has access to Events, the user will always have access to setup pricing at the event build level but those templates won’t be saved at organisation level as a template for future use. They will only be able to create pricing templates that will be applied to those events and saved against the event. What is a pricing template? It’s essentially the pricing that defines what should be charged. When building an event/activity, the key is identifying how many pricing templates you need. For every date/time that has different pricing, you’ll need to create a pricing template. For example, if ‘Saturday matinee’ has different pricing to ‘cheap Tuesday’ and ‘weekends’, then you will need three pricing templates. You may even create one called ‘main’ which will be allocated to most dates and times. In saying this, all days could use the main template, while Tuesday will use the cheap Tuesday template. Your Saturday matinee time will use the matinee template and finally, your weekend pricing will be taken care by the weekend template.
Holds can be tickets held for staff, promoters, sound desk, competition winners etc. If your capacity was 1000 and your holds were 100, 900 tickets would then be available online.
