As a system administrator you are responsible for the creation, empowerment and control of all users. List of all registerred users can be viewed by choosing Settings -> Users. The list can be filtered by username and display name (partial match) and email (full match). You can also sort the list alphabetical by username or display name.
To the right of each user in the list you can see the operations that you can perform with it, such as activate or deactivate, and also you can delete it when he will no longer use the system. Possible other operations are editing information about it, changing the rights and main role (not desirable for the already active users) and reseting his password (to enter a new password).
For each user in the list you can find the following information: ID, Username, Display Name (usually real name, which all other users see), Role, Telephone, Email, Status, Session Time and Language.
To create a new user you must select Settings -> Users. At the top of the page, click the button "Create New User". This will open a form to create a new user.
The fields you have to fill are: "Username" - username that will be used for logging into the system; "Display name" - the name that all other users of the system see, usually the real name and surname; "Email" and "Phone" fields are optional, but it is nice to enter as much information that will be useful; "Session time" - minutes of inactivity by the user, after which the system will require re-logging in; Select a language for the user from the list; Enter the password for the user (twice) and recommend the person to change the password immediately after his first login. The password must meet following conditions - to be at least 6 characters long and contain at least one small and one capital letter as well as at least one number.
IMPORTANT: After creating each user by default he has the lowest level of permissions and main role of "User". After creating you must click on the link "Roles" of the new user and select the main role for his account, namely: "Admin", "Distributor", "Accountant", "Cashier", "Director", "Checker" or "Producer". Only for special cases role "User" can be left. It should be noted that the main role defines fundamental permissions for the system resources and not the administrative position of the person in the organization. After the initial selection of the main role we do NOT RECOMMENDED subsequent change, although the system allows it and is technically possible. It is good practice to create a new username if the same person is changing his position and responsibilties in the organization.
To edit information about an user you need to find it in the list and click on "Edit"
The fields that you can change are: "Display name", "Email", "Phone", "Session time", "Language", after applying the changes, enter your own administrator password at the top of the form and click the button "Change". Fields must comply with the same conditions as the registration of a new user. "Email" and "Phone" are optional.
Basic permissions for each user are determined by the main role that can be "Admin", "Distributor", "Accountant", "Cashier", "Director", "Checker", "Producer" or "User". This main role can be changed at any time, but not recommended, a better practice is to create a new user, if needed.
Each main role has a specific additional permissions which may be at anytime associated or removed (eg acceptance of credit card payments or the right to issue invitations).
To change user main role or specific permissions, select "Roles" to the desired user from the list.
Change user password
Each user can change his password and personal data by himself in the system, but in the case when the current password is forgotten and the user has no access to the system, he should seek the assistance of the administrator. The administrator can change the password of any user.
For this purpose, from the list of users click on "Change Password" of the desired account. In the form that opens you have to enter your current password in the top field, then twice the new password. Click the "Change" button.
Always recommend users to change their password immediately after successful login.

To create a new scene click on the button at the top of the page "Create new scene". In the form to create there are the following fields: "Name" - this is the name that will appear on the tickets of the performances that are played on this stage/scene. Field is not unique and you can create a lot of scenes with the same name - practically representing different configurations of the same real scene. To be able to distinguish diversities configurations available there is second field "Name suffix" that is visible only within the system. The third field defines the existence of sectors or not (this value determines whether the value sector will be displayed on the ticket). Notwithstanding this value each scene consists of a grid of multiple sectors. The X and Y parameters of this grid are given in the last two fields. After entering the required information, click the button "Register".
Each scene has a grid of sectors. To see the grid of a scene, click on the "Grid". You will see a list of all registered sectors of the selected scene, and their arrangement within the grid below. Each sector can be associated only with one position on the grid or may not be associated with any position (then this sector will be ignored by the system). To reposition the grid make the appropriate choice from the dropdown menu and click "Save". It is possible to register and assign to the grid empty sectors (eg sector "scene", which practically visualize the physical positioning of the stage scene in the hall, with no seats).
The list of sectors contain the following information: ID, Name, Row num, Row Grid, Seats, Grid X and Grid Y. To register a new sector click on the button at the top "Create new sector". In the registration form you must enter "Name" - will be shown on the ticket, if the scene has selected "with sectors" option. The name is not unique, so you can create more than one sector with the same name (can practically divide the real sectors of the subsectors of the same name). The field "Name Suffix" is displayed only inside the system and can be used to distinguish the sectors with the same name. There are two different types of sector "with seats (numbered)" and "without seats". For sectors of type "with seats" you should leave 0 in the "Seats" as the system calculates them automatically, select YES or NO in the "Row num" determines whether each row number is displaid on the scheme on each line left and right, and enter values for X and Y of the seats grid. For sectors of type "without seats" enter the number of seats for the sector in the "Seats" field, choose NOT to "Row num", and leave 0 in the fields X and Y for the grid. Finally, click on the button "Register".
After registration of sector of type "with seats" it is necessary to click on the "Grid" and define the actual scheme of the seats on the grid with their "Seat number", "Line number" and "Type of seat". If you want a position in the grid to remain empty, you must set the value dash (-) for the seat number for this seat position. After you define all seat places click "Save" button.
You can not change the definitions of a scene if it is associated with a future event in the schedule, which has already sold tickets, because this can lead to conflict with the already sold tickets.

To add a new discount click on the "Create new discount" button. "Name" field contains a value that will be visible only inside the system, and the field "Ticket name" contains a value that will be printed on the ticket (for example, "social"), the field is optional and is not unique. You can define a variety of discounts, which are displayed in the same way on the ticket. Drop box "Role" determines which users of the system will have the right to give this discount, access levels are "User" - available to everyone, "Discount plus", "Discounts extra ','Discounts pass" - the highest level inherits all other previous. The two values for each discount are "percent" and "fixed" corrections accordingly regular price of a seat / ticket.
