Once you click the manage seating icon, a window will appear. The seating manager is your tool to control ticketing to your event. Here you may mark tickets to be blocked for online ticket sales, release seats that are currently held or have previously been sold, issue complementary tickets to friends or family, and report ticket sales from cash or check purchases.
Important Note: Your ticket buyers will only be able to see whether a seat is available or unavailable for sale.
The seating manager window provides a legend with all the available options for your seats. Click here for more information about the legend.
