Event ticket types can be found on the corresponding event's page. Some examples of ticket types you may want are "General admission", VIP, "Dietary Requirements", "Under 12s", "Restricted mobility". If your event is at a larger venue that has seating sections, then Section A, B, C, D, etc. may also be appropriate.
The Allocated progress bar displays how many tickets are allocated. Likewise, the refunded progress bar shows how many tickets are refunded. The last progress bar, "Checked in," displays the total number of people checked-in by having their ticket scanned. Learn more about checking-in attendees.
Tip: When tickets are free, people often don't turn up for events making it hard to manage seating levels. A simple answer to this problem is to charge a small amount for tickets and then refund the tickets at the end of the night. You may even suggest to attendees on the night that not refunding their tickets is an easy way to support the event. The refund progress bar makes it easy for you to keep track of how many tickets have been refunded.

Tip: If you want bookings to relate to a person on UCare then make sure you add a name field plus either an email, mobile, phone or birthday field.
