To set up paid ticketing functionality as part of your registration, please first see our Stripe Integration set up guide.


Setting Up Registration Ticketing

To get started with Registration Ticketing first log in to the CMS and select your desire application.

  1. Navigate to 'Settings'
  2. In the secondary menu scroll down and select 'Feature Toggles'
  3. On the 'Feature Toggles' page, within the 'Delegate Registration Section' you will need to 'Enable the Registration Feature of the App' and then 'Enable Registration Ticketing'.

For more information on setting up your Registration please see here.


Payment Settings Overview

To initiate the process of adding tickets to the Dashboard, which will later be linked to your Registration Form, navigate to the 'Registration' tab. Then, within the Management section of the secondary menu, click on 'Ticketing - Beta' and 'Payment Settings'.

From within this page you will be able to configure your Tickets currency and Tax rate. Some points of note:

You will need to set your tax rate either in the CMS or in Stripe, setting the tax rate in both platforms will result in the tax amount being applied to the ticket twice.


Adding Tickets to the Ticket Library

From within the 'Ticketing - Beta' tab, select 'Tickets' and in the top corner of the page, click on 'Create new ticket'. In the ensuing pop-up dialog, begin inputting the ticket details, such as the label, price (leave blank for free ticketing), and capacity. Once completed, click 'Submit'.

If you've chosen the Public Registration form with email verification, users must complete verification within 10 minutes of form submission. Failure to verify will cancel their ticket allocation, requiring re-registration. Alternatively, if email verification is handled by Dashboard admins, the ticket allocation limits will not apply.

At the checkout once a user is verified, the ticket will be held for 30 minutes to allow the consumer to complete the purchase. If the payment times out the ticket allocation will be released for purchase.

On the Edit page, you have the option to provide additional details about the ticket. This includes the ability to incorporate an image or icon, along with a description, using the rich-text editor.

The subsequent section on the Edit page provides details regarding ticket availability. While this section is optional, you may find it useful if you wish to limit ticket distribution to specific groups or control the timing of ticket availability. Additionally, you have the option to restrict the dates and times when tickets can be distributed. For instance, if you're offering Early Bird tickets, you can confine their distribution to the first 10 days after registration opens.

Adding the Tickets Section to the Form

Now that you've added all the tickets to the Dashboard, it's time to incorporate them into your form.

To start adding ticket options to your Registration Form, navigate to the Registration tab. Then, within the Content section on the secondary menu, click ‘Form Designer’.

On this page, you will see the Basic Information section. This is a default section that enables the registrant to add their email, first and last names. 

If you've already built your Registration Form and wish to incorporate the Tickets Section seamlessly, just click on the 'Create new section' button, illustrated below. If you're interested in mastering the art of crafting the Registration Form from the ground up, click here.

To create a new section, simply complete the section details in the pop-up dialog. This includes providing a title for example 'Tickets', selecting the section icon, specifying Group Privacy if you intend to restrict the ticket distribution to a certain audience, adding a brief description, and then clicking Submit.

Adding the Tickets Options to the Section

Now that you've set up a section for tickets, you can proceed to add the section fields and link the tickets you've created here. Simply click on the '+' icon to add a new ticket type. This action will open a dialog presenting various field options and two types of Ticketing options:

  1. Single Ticket Selection – Allows users to select a single ticket from a list of available tickets
  2. Multi Ticket Selection – Allows users to select multiple tickets from a list of available tickets

Single Ticket Selection

This option is most suitable when you require the user to choose only one selection from multiple options. For instance, if you offer an admission ticket for your event with choices such as Standing, Seated, Restricted View, and VIP - Front Row, and users are limited to selecting just one option, the Single Ticket Selection feature is the ideal choice.

When you select this option, you will be presented with the configuration dialog

On this dialog, you will see four tabs, and they are:

  1. Setup – Here, you'll input the label name for the field along with an optional brief description. Additionally, provide a list of choices that will appear as options on the registration form. Click on the '+' icon, and in the ensuing pop-up dialog, you can select from a list of tickets that you've previously created in the Ticket Library.
  2. Validation – You have the option to designate this field as either mandatory or optional.
  3. Connect – You can map the current field to either the Profile or the Custom field in the CrowdComms People’s list. In addition, you can also add the user to a session or a group based on their answer. Please refer here for explanations of how to configure this tab.
  4. Visibility – You can customise this tab to determine when to display or hide the current field, depending on the user’s response to other fields. Additionally, you can add People Group settings to limit the visibility of this field to specific groups. For detailed instructions on configuring this tab, please refer here.

 Once you’re happy with the text field configuration, click ‘Submit’.

Multi Ticket Selection

This option is most suitable when you need users to choose multiple selections from a range of options. For example, if your event includes merchandise such as travel mugs, stationaries, umbrellas, notebooks etc, and users are allowed to select two items from the list, the multi-ticket selection is the optimal field choice.

Another scenario where this field type is useful is when you have sessions listed in the Agenda Module within the Dashboard, and you want users to book the sessions they wish to attend during registration. In the Connect tab, you can link the user's selection to the sessions available in the Agenda Module. To master the creation of an Agenda Module from scratch, click here.

When you select this option, you will be presented with the configuration dialog.

On this dialog, you will see four tabs, and they are:

  1. Setup – Here, you'll input the label name for the field along with an optional brief description. Additionally, provide a list of choices that will appear as options on the registration form. Click on the '+' icon, and in the ensuing pop-up dialog, you can select from a list of tickets that you've previously created in the Ticket Library.
  2. Validation – You have the choice to designate this field as mandatory or optional, and you can also specify the maximum and minimum selections users are permitted to make from the list of options.
  3. Connect – You can map the current field to either the Profile or the Custom field in the CrowdComms People’s list. In addition, you can also add the user to a session or a group based on their answer. Please refer here for explanations of how to configure this tab.
  4. Visibility – You can customise this tab to determine when to display or hide the current field, depending on the user’s response to other fields. Additionally, you can add People Group settings to limit the visibility of this field to specific groups. For detailed instructions on configuring this tab, please refer here.

 Once you’re happy with the text field configuration, click ‘Submit’.
