In brief: The following article outlines how to add single or recurring tour dates to your calendar. Please note you must have created your Tour Template first before adding new tour dates. If you need a refresher on how to create a tour template, click HERE.
ADDING TOUR DATES TO YOUR CALENDAR
Next to the Tour Template you wish to create dates for, click "Manage Tour Dates"
You should see an interactive calendar load onto the page. Using this calendar, find and click on the date of the FIRST tour date you would like to add.
Example: I want to add tour dates from September 1st to December 20th. Click on September 1st.
You should see the event creation window appear, with the option to create either a single or recurring event.
SINGLE EVENTS: If you are creating a single event, simply enter the date and start time, and click "Create". The system will automatically add the details of the template into the date you have chosen, and voila! You have a tour ready to sell tickets!
RECURRING EVENTS: If you are planning to run this event on multiples dates, select "recurring" and you will see some new fields populate.
Here, you have the ability to select which dates your tour will run and at what times. Simply enter the first and last dates of the tour (please note you can always come back and add additional tours at anytime), select the start time, and check off all days that you would like that tour to run.
Example: if your tour runs every Thursday, Friday, and Saturday at 12:00pm from July 1st until December 31st, this is what your screen should contain:
You can also choose to add bulk or individual event dates/tour dates as either Pending, Private, Assign Tour Guides and set a different meeting point for those tour dates.
Select "SHOW" beside "Advanced Options" to select a different meeting point for the tour dates you are adding, and select "Pending" or "Private" to set the status of the tours to pending or private.
EzTip: The tour dates you are adding will automatically default to "LIVE", and "PUBLIC" unless you select the alternate options.
Once you click "create", the EzTix system will automatically add this tour into your calendar on the days and time specified, as well as Advanced options specified. If you have additional tours that run on different days and times, simply repeat the process. The new dates will automatically appear on your EzTix-integrated website to start selling tickets!
