Stages are seating charts in which the seats are arranged and grouped by sectors with their settings. When creating an upcoming event, you can choose a seating chart from those already created.

  2. Go to the Stages page in the office panel
  3. Click the icon in the top right corner to create a new hall.
  4. The Designer Hall opens for you

The sketch of the hall is drawn in approximate proportions to the actual hall. When previewing in the system, each sketch is automatically sized according to the available screen space.


On the left is the toolbar, and on the right are are the artboard settings. Everything you do must be within the bounds of the artboard. Artboard size can be changed from Artboard settings.

  1. Stage builder tools
  2. Artboard. Items outside the artboard will not be rendered in the system.
  3. Stage name.
  4. Save changes button
  5. Return actions taken to the desktop - Undo/Redo.
  6. All sectors created in the artboard are displayed in Sector with the names and colors you have set. You can make a quick sector selection by clicking on the name. You can see the capacity by sector and the total capacity of the stage you made.
  7. Change desktop width and height.


To use any of the tools, you need to drag it from the toolbar to the artboard. 

When adding a seat or a group of seats, they are automatically selected. You can use the mouse or keyboard arrows ↑←↓→ to position them relative to the scene.


Stage Settings

Each added and selected artboard item has additional settings that are displayed on the left.

After adding and selecting a Stage on the desktop, you can:

  1. Change its width and height size
  2. You can round its edges by using numbers from 0 to 100
  3. You can delete it from the artboard

Region settings

Region is a space that contains capacity. Using Region is suitable for spaces without reserved seating spot.

After adding and selecting a Region on the artboard, you can:

  1. Add a sector name and choose a color.
  2. Add a region name.
  3. Enter capacity. Maximum number of seats that can be sold by the region.
  4. Change the width and height size.
  5. You can round the edges using numbers from 0 to 100.
  6. Add a sample photo with a view from the region to the stage.
  7. You can delete it from the artboard.

At the Event creation stage, the price categories are determined based on the individual sectors in the selected stage. So, for example, if the price list of most performances is Ground floor - $10, Balcony $20, then these are the two sectors that you need to separate while creating the stage map.

Sectors are grouped by name. When allocating a new sector, we always set its name first and then change the color. If at the time of setting the color, we have not changed the name of the sector, then it will be applied to all places of the old sector.

Seat settings

After adding and selecting a Seat in the artboard, you can:

  1. Add a sector name and choose a color
  2. Add a row and seat number/name
  3. Select a feature
  4. Add a sample photo with a view to the stage a.k.a. seat view.
  5. You can delete it from the artboard.

Add a group of seats

Adding seats one by one is very time consuming process. You can optimize it by adding them at once with the "group of seats" tool. Drag "Group of seats" tool to the artboard and select the number of rows and seats per row. All seats will be inserted automatically for you. You can then arrange them.

  1. Choose how many rows and how many seats per row to add at once.

Text settings

You can add text to the artboard to guide users as they navigate your seating chart.

After adding and selecting Text on the artboard, you can:

  1. Type what you want to be visualized on the artboard
  2. Display vertically or horizontally
  3. You can adjust the degree of field rotation
  4. You can delete it from the artboard.
