In many instances, you may have a maximum capacity for your event. Line-Up enables you to set a capacity for each performance of your event that you create.
Setting a capacity
The capacity can be set on the Edit/Ticket Management page for your event.
Simply scroll to the Date/Time section and either edit a capacity for an existing performance, or if you're creating a new performance, edit the capacity as you enter the new date and time information.
Capacity and ticket sales
Setting a capacity means that regardless of the ticket inventory you make available across the various ticket types that you create, you will never be able to sell more tickets than your capacity.
For example, let's imagine that you create an event performance that has a capacity of 100 and create the following ticket types:
In this situation, you're very unlikely to want to make available 50 Adult tickets and 50 Child tickets to get to your capacity of 100. Instead, you're more likely to want to be able to sell up to 100 Adult tickets and up to 100 child tickets, dependent on the make up of your ticket buyers. Setting the capacity enables you to do this. Having set a capacity for a performance, when you create your ticket types, you can make as many tickets of this type available as you wish, safe in the knowledge that however many ticket types you create, you'll never be able to sell more than your capacity.
Line-Up also enables you to keep a constant reserve of a certain ticket type. This is what we refer to as Capacity Locked tickets. Read more about Capacity Lock here.
