1. Face Value of Tickets

As of July 1st, legislation put in place by the Ontario Government regarding tickets for concerts, sporting events, and theatre productions went into effect. Since TM is designed around and only implemented for primary ticket sellers, a feature has been added to specify what components of the overall price goes into the ‘face value’ of the ticket.

  • The display of the face value is enabled in the Web Options Tab. If set, then print at home tickets and web carts will automatically show the face value along with final price.
  • There is a new field in ticket face calculation that calculates the Face Value for the ticket face prior to printing it. To access it:
    • add a new calculation to the ticket face
    • Select Ticket Information as the category
    • Select Sale Price (using Face Value calculation to insert the field into the ticket face
    • Place the face value field where you want it on the ticket and save
    • Make sure to test your ticket
    • Repeat for all affected tickets.
