HeySummit allows event organizers to set up a multitude of tickets, each with their own permissions, price-points, and perks. You have a high level of customization, but power comes with a price. Fully understanding your options is vital, so here's the lowdown on all things tickets.
More of a visual learner? Check out our video:
- Firstly, in order to get to your ticket set up page you must be logged in as the Event Organizer. Go to your Dashboard, then click on Revenue and select Tickets from the sub-menu.
- Before you can set up prices, restrictions, and everything in between for tickets, check out the Settings.
- You will come to a page that looks like this:
- Let's unpack this. Firstly, the Promote via promo bar option can be toggled on/off and it allows you to advertise your tickets across your HeySummit website.
Please note, the Promo Banner under Event Setup > Settings must be inactive to display your ticket banner.
- There are two further options where you can advertise your tickets- during Registration (when potential attendees sign up for your summit) and as a Sidebar Promo.
- On this Settings page, you can also change the text associated with your tickets.
- You can edit the title and description of a ticket under Revenue > Tickets > ... > Edit Record.
- Under Short Description, you can use our rich text editor to bold, underline, italicize, use headers, create a numbered or bullet point list and clear existing formatting, by highlighting the text you want.
What are Ticket Limits?
- Return to the main Revenue > Tickets page. On the right, click on the ... button and select Edit Record from the drop-down menu.
- Ticket limits refer to the restrictions you can set on the different ticket types you've created.
- Restrict Access means that the ticket is ONLY going to work under those conditions. For example, if you restricted a ticket to Day 3 out of a 4-day event, the owners of those tickets can only access content from Day 3.

Expiration Dates for Tickets
- On the same page, there is the option to set expiration dates for tickets if desired.
- You can manually enter the number of hours either a) from ticket purchase or b) from the talk going live, that you want the ticket to remain active.
Please note, if these restrictions don't apply to your ticket you should leave the fields blank.
- The last option on the page is the Prices option.
- Here, you can set the price and the duration for which the price is valid.
- Click on Add Another if you want to set up one ticket that has different price points at different times.
- If you want to select a specific range of dates for when a ticket will be available at a certain price (for example 50% for one day only), select Date Range in the dropdown menu under Active. Do note that Active from is the date when attendees can start purchasing tickets at this price, and Active to is the date when tickets at this price are no longer available.
