Creating seating tags

Recommended Posts

hello all,

 I have been handed a project to auto count seating sections and because of covid restrictions, the seating arrangements that the venue have, in conjunction with their ticketing system cannot (yet) handle the different variations. For instance, for every group of visitors that are in the same "bubble" and who would be allowed to sit together, one seat on either side has to be free. At the moment, this is going to be done manually - yes yes, a right pain in the neck - but I am looking for a way that I can tag each seating section with the different totals of seats, and also the total number of seats. Can I style the tag to recognise the differing symbols that I have used in each section?

 In my attached example, the seat symbols are;

 black - normal

 red - free

 green - sold

 Am I going about this in the correct/most logical way?

 As always, any help greatly appreciated 🙂

Your best way to do this would be to ungroup the seating section and fill in the record on the chairs then you could use data visualisation to do the hard work.

Above is a video on one way you could do this, you won't need different symbols.

 

Breaking the seating section like this will mean you can no longer tag the section to display counts but you can put a worksheet on the drawing that just displays totals of that new record field.

@TomWhiteLight thanks for the pointer - and the learning curve I'm about to climb. You say "data visualisation" - I have no idea what it is or how to use it, but I'll give it a go. Will start out with the VW help site. 🙂
