The user can create a map of the concert hall himself and can also set different price categories as needed. The customer is allowed to choose from a map of the concert hall layout.

When creating a seating map for a concert event, as in the previous case, it is convenient to use sections to create a seating map, but you can also create a seating map using a set of tables. In the following example, you can see an example of creating a map using a set of tables where you can set the table shape and determine the number of chairs.
Map of seats and tables
For events such as balls or concerts, it is advisable to offer customers a map of the seats from which they can choose. So before creating the deadline, you need to create a resource and prepare a seat/table layout map that is displayed to customers.
Reources - Seats map templates
Creating the event itself involves setting up important information about the event. The user must not forget that in the section reserved resources must be set at least one resource, which is usually the venue. When a user selects just one of the map templates, the names of each category are displayed, which can then be assigned a price.
Once a map is assigned and saved for a event, a copy of the map is created from the template, and the map is only linked to that event and is independent of the template! Changes in the template will not be reflected in the deadline, it is necessary to edit the map directly in the given deadline!
Create a map
In the Resources tab, select seat map templates and create a new map. You can use a table or section to edit the seats. The section creates rows of seats (typical for concert events). When creating a section, you can rename seats or even entire rows, use the fillet function and set categories for each seat. The category serves mainly for price differentiation of individual seats or whole rows. When creating an event, the names of each category will be displayed after loading the seat map and the user will be able to set a price for each category.
The second option is to create a map of each table, where the user can set one of the two shapes and the number of chairs. If the customer is to book the entire table, not just individual seats, it is necessary to allow the reservation of the whole table (we must not forget that the price then applies to one table, which includes more seats). Here you can also set categories. The color coding will always be assigned to the part to which the reservation relates.
When creating a map, you can use Shift + drag to select multiple objects. By double clicking on a specific object you will be able to edit its content and you can, for example, edit the marking of individual seats.
When creating a template, you can also use objects that create a label using text. The map will also alert customers, for example, where the stage is located or whether a column will obstruct their view, etc. Tables and sections can be combined in one template.
Incorrectly set map: There are two categories in the illustration of the created seat map. On the sides of the auditorium section are pairs of tables. The right pair of tables is allowed to book only the entire table, so the entire table is color-coded, not individual chairs. At the same time, the preview also highlights an error you may be making while creating it. If you only allow the reservation of an entire table, you need to set a special category for these tables. In the preview we see that the price for one seat at the right table is the same as the price of five seats at the left table, which is definitely not desirable!
