Key Changes in Version 9.05.07

  • Theatre Manager is officially certified PCI DSS 1.2 compliant. After months waiting in the queue for final review by the PCI council, one change was requested, implemented and final approval received on December 14th.
  • Facility Management continues to evolve in response to the feedback from the user community. Look for improvements in the look of the calendar, improvements in calendar filters, reorganized screens and more transparent integration between the Gantt chart and the calendar.

    This version also brings the initial implementation of estimating, invoicing, billing and posting to the G/L for the sales/booking of rooms, resources, and staff. During our day long internal staff training session, it became quite apparent just how comprehensive and useful this module would be to many venues.

December 2010 Newsletter

The December ArtsMan Chronicle contains a number of 'how tos' about adding Google Analytics to your web pages, mapping some patrons on Google maps and ad the hot seat analyser. We also welcome new venues to Theatre Manager.

it has been an exciting summer since the release of Version 9 and the latest version is 9.04.12. For any venue currently using version 9, we recommend upgrading to this version as soon as possible as it addresses an important issue where best seat searching could cause a web listeners to continually try to find seats on a nearly full venue.

Version 9.05 is in the works. It will have a significant expansion in the scope of the Facility Management module - and billing for events in your venue, including incidentals like staffing, resources, and consumables like coffee and refreshments will be available - all thanks to the feedback for those who are using the system. We appreciate your help.

Key Changes in Version 9.04.04

A new feature has been added to allow you to spatially plot your patrons on a map using google. Google's static map API supports about 100 distinct points on one map.

This data can be accessed from the patron list or a patron mail list using the context menus.

There are two key bug fixes to support web sales.

Announcing the 'Hot Seat Analyzer'

We have just added a feature to Theatre Manager's facility module that we wanted to do for a long time call the Hot Seat Analyzer. You can now easily analyze the frequency of usage of each seat and/or the value or worth of that seat to a venue under a number of circumstances.

Introductory pricing ends July 31st.

There is also a cool example of how the Facility Management module can be used to schedule and notify your volunteers and/or artists of rehearsal schedules, where they should be, and integration with their own calendars. Introductory pricing ends July 31st.

PST/RST/HST Transitional Rules for exchanges - interpretation

We receive a fair number of questions about the upcoming implementation of HST and how Theatre Manager handles transitional ticket exchanges. You may wish to read the transitional rules and the background reference material so you can implement your own exchange policy.

Please do not consider this as tax advice (always talk to your accountant). It is, however, information to be aware of that pertains to how to use Theatre Manager at this time if you are affected by the HST transition.
