Categories in the ticket shop for events
Categories offer you the option of combining individual events in your online shop into groups.
In this article
This is what the categories in the online shop look like
In this example, you'll see a Magic Brunch category as well as two indivdiual, uncategorised events. You can recognise a category because there is no specific event date in the top left-hand part of the screen. Category tiles are always displayed immediately before the tiles for the individual events.
If you select the Magic Brunch category, the various events for Magic Brunch will be listed in this example. A variety of different events may be located in a category. You have the option of displaying all events grouped by day.
Setting up categories
Give the category a suitable name in all activated languages. The name will then appear in the online shop as a title on the detailed category page.
As an option, you can also add a description to the category (in all activated languages). The description will then appear in the online shop on the detailed category page.
As soon as you click on the grey button, then on the Save button, the category will be published to the ticket shop. The grey button turns blue. You also have the option of hiding the event in the online shop. Clicking on Direct URL allows you to open the event in the online shop and send it to your target group.
A category only appears on the landing page if active events are allocated to this category.
Group by date
If you would like to group the events in the ticket shop by day, you can turn on the Group by date function.
We recommend this view if you would like to activate multiple events and/or your events are taking place at different times on the same day.
If events take place for at least two months, a monthly navigation is also displayed automatically.
