Live for iOS is the mobile companion app for ShowClix. Providing a real-time feed of ticket sales and pageview activity, Live is essential for checking your events on the go.
This guide will walk you through all the different features of Live iOS app. For information on Live Dashboard in the ShowClix Admin, visit the Live Dashboard guide.
1. Getting Started
First, download Live from the App Store at https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/showclix-live/id663880123?mt=8. (Note: Live is compatible with iOS 7 and newer.)
Once the app has completed its installation, tap to open the app. Enter your ShowClix Admin email and password; then, tap Sign In.
The app will load your upcoming events and display the main menu.
2. Main Menu
When you sign in, you’ll see a list of all of your upcoming events. Each event also includes highlights of recent activity:
- Name. The event’s name.
- Date & countdown. The event’s date and the number of days until the event.
- Tickets issued. A bar graph representing each of the most recent seven days of ticket sales.
- Note: Scale is relative to the day of highest ticket sales across the seven days displayed.
- Revenue to date. All-time revenue for the event.
- Note: Revenue is calculated from total ticket cost minus discounts, comps, and refunds.
- Total tickets issued. A total count of the number of tickets sold out of the maximum inventory. Includes the percentage of total sold.
To view events that have already happened, scroll to the bottom of your upcoming events and tap Past Events.
The Past Events list is simpler than the Upcoming Events list found on the main menu. Events are listed from most recent to oldest, and each event includes a name and date. You can click any event to see its Activity page.
Tap the gear icon in the top left to access the Account menu. This menu displays your account info, including your name, organization name, and email address.
The menu includes an FAQ with some basic instructions for the app, as well as a button for submitting debug info to our developers. You can also tap the Log Out button to sign out of Live.
The bell icon in the top right displays a badge with the number of your unread push notifications from Agent. Tap the icon to see a list of all the recent notifications.
3. Event Breakdown
Tap any event to see an up-to-the-minute breakdown of sales and other data.
Each event’s breakdown includes the following sections:
Tickets Issued Today
A horizontal graph of the event’s sales timeline, covering the first date of ticket sales up to the current date. (Note: For past events, the far-right date represents the final day of ticket sales.)
The height of each point in the graph is relative to the day with the highest ticket sales. In other words, the best day for ticket sales will be the tallest bar on the graph, and each other bar’s height will be relative to the number of tickets issued for that day.
Swipe left and right to browse the timeline — the number at the top displays the number of tickets issued for the day you have currently selected.
(Note: This date selection does not affect the data displayed in Live — the other numbers always reflect all-time data.)
