Seats: Assign and manage custom search filters for a seat

In this article

Each active seat that has been added to the Seat Booking module can have custom Search Filters assigned to it. These search filters—which are configured and customized by an Admin-level user—allow you to provide additional classifications and context to your patrons when they are deciding which seat to book.

While filter assignments can be managed in bulk for your seats and when creating new seats, you can also adjust the filters assigned to each seat individually.

Example of custom filters being shown on a public booking page
Custom search filters will be present when searching for a space/seat to book and in the details of each available space/seat.

To adjust the filters assigned to a seat:

  1. Go to Admin > Spaces & Equipment.
  2. Under the Locations tab, find the location containing the category you want to work with and click on its link in the Spaces column.
Selecting Equipment & Spaces from the Admin menu
  1. Click the Edit Space () icon for the container space for the seats where you want to adjust search filter assignments.
Clicking the edit space icon
  1. Click on the Seats tab.
    • Note: Search filters cannot be assigned to spaces that are containers for seats—each seat within the space will have its filters managed separately.
  2. Click on the Edit Seat () icon for the seat where you want to adjust search filter assignments.
    1. Filters that have been assigned to each seat already will be listed in the Search Filters column.
