Checking ticket status at the backend 

Once the Ticket is scanned, its status changes automatically at the admin backend. You can check the status by following these steps: 

1. On the menu bar, click REPORTS and then Tickets 
2. If the ticket has been scanned, the status will change to 'Yes' in the Seated column (see Figure 10). The status will say 'No' if the ticket has not been scanned. 




3. The status can also be manually changed from the backend by clicking the blue 'Yes' or 'No' button and selecting the required option (Figure 11). A pop up appears asking for confirmation, click OK and the status will change.
