Did You Know: Timed Entry

Did you know you can control capacity, easily adjust ticket quantities and time intervals, and monitor who’s in attendance with individual time slots?

As you begin the process of reopening your in-person events, you’ll need an event technology solution that can help you safely welcome attendees and control how many are in your event at any given time. With our timed entry feature, you’ll keep the lines moving and easily gate how many attendees can purchase tickets for each time slot. Plus, by managing entrance times to your event, you can stagger admissions to ensure social distancing and set dedicated cleaning and sanitizing times throughout the day.

When creating an event series in the ShowClix Admin, you’ll be presented with an additional step to build out a schedule for hourly, daily, weekly, or monthly recurring events. Simply choose the date and time range at which your event occurs, and the system will automatically create a calendar widget that appears directly on your event page, so your ticket buyers can easily choose their preferred time slot. You can further customize this calendar by listing the number of tickets remaining for each time slot, setting a series threshold, and hiding sold out events.
