Many thanks to everyone that helped AttendStar at the event! Even though we only handled reserved seating early reports indicate that 120,000 were there on Saturday. What’s […]
New Discount Code functionality is here. Up until now you had to create two discount codes to create a discount of say $5.00 on one ticket and $10.00 on another ticket. Well one of our genius clients said “Why?” and we listened. So soon you will be able to use the same code for different […]
We are working on improving our event checklist and making that available from within the Event Manager. The goal is to make the checklist more meaningful and bring up things you might not have thought of. The checklist can also be downloaded. The event checklist can be seen here.
