If you want to generate sales reports for specific performances of events or export guest lists, settlement reports, coupons redeemed, barcodes, ticket lists, product sales, as well as survey responses and waiting lists then you must click manage next to your desired event. Once you click manage, you will see this page below.

The Events Page

The main events page allows you to download event-wide reports that span multiple performances rather than for a single performance. The waiting list and event settlement report are two available event-wide reports.

Multi-Event Waiting List

The event waiting list compiles all waiting lists for all dates of an event in a single view. This is especially helpful for organizations with recurring dates or potentially hundreds of dates for a single event.

Multi-Performance Settlement Report

The event settlement report gives a comprehensive financial overview of all event dates. Specifically, the settlement report displays tickets sold by type, fees collected, refunds, discounts, coupons given, sales tax and more. However, it's important to note that the event settlement report is limited to events with no more than 25 performances.

Once you have clicked on events in the black navigation bar, click on the list icon in the reports column corresponding to your desired event to export the waiting list or click on the clipboard icon to export the event settlement report.
