Channels have a few functions in Brushfire. First, they can store different types of content. Second, if you are using Brushfire Online to host an event, they can grant different types of access to different attendee levels. We will discuss this further below.
Pro-tip: Create your channel before promoting your ticketing! This will give your attendees the smoothest experience to using Brushfire Online.
Add a new Channel
Sign in at https://online.brushfire.com/dashboard/.
Go to the “channels” tab on the left sidebar.
Click the + in the top right corner.
Add your channel details and click “next”.
“Make this Channel Private” means that your channel will be completely hidden from attendee view and will be internal use only. It will only be accessed by a direct link.
If you would like to have the contents of your channel not show right away, you can set it to be visible at a certain date and then also remove it from visibility when attendees no longer have access.
To connect your Brushfire ticketing event type in the event number (the 6 digits found at the end of your URL on your event URL). Once the event number has been entered it will bring up each attendee type. You can give access to the channels to these attendee types by clicking the checkbox and setting the max number of screens. To give any access to the channel it will need to be set as one. We recommend allowing 2-3 screens per attendee.
