Using OpenTickets to Sell Tickets for a Formal Dinner

The most obvious use of OpenTickets is for selling tickets to performance Events of one kind or another – but using our Seating Extension opens up many more possibilities

If you are holding a formal dinner of some kind and want to sell tickets for designated seats around a series of tables – this is easy to do

First create a new Seating Chart – and then import the background image for your table(s) that you wish to use

Now using the Circle Tool carefully draw your first seat over number 1
Within its Properties settings assign it a Seat Number, Capacity and set the opacity to 0.5
