Limit number of event tickets available

Originally submitted July 10, 2015

When you set up an event, it looks like the system will limit the # of tickets available if you fill in the # of tickets available field.

This doesn't do anything - I set up an event to sell 120 tickets and logged in yesterday and saw we were already at 127.

Can you either 1) Make this field functional and shut down sales once the max is reached or 2) Remove the # of tickets available field since it seems to be useless.

Update 10/23/17 this has been updated! You can now limit the number of tickets available per ticket level. People will receive a 'sold out' error message when the number of tickets is purchased. We also added a counter to the number of tickets sold on the back end and removed the ability to add a 'guest' from the control panel for a ticketed event. 


We also added new event ticket level liquid variables

You will also see Update 10/3 - we have started to look into this issue. 

This is something we are considering but does not have a timeline at the moment.
