To get to the Guest List section of the Master Tour desktop application, just click a Tour Date on the right side, then click the Guest List section on the left side. You can also click Navigate>Guest List in the top menu bar, use the Cmd-7 keyboard shortcut on MacOS, or use the Ctrl-7 keyboard shortcut on Windows.
Here, you'll see all the guest list requests that have been submitted for this Tour Date from the Master Tour Mobile app, the my.eventric.com Web Portal, and the Master Tour desktop application.
Adding A Guest Listing
To add a guest listing, you'll just start entering info in the top row of the Guest List. Similar to Excel and other spreadsheet programs, you can use Tab and Return/Enter to progress through the fields of your Guest List entries.
- Tab - progresses to the next field in a Guest Listing
- Shift-Tab - goes to the previous field in a Guest Listing
- Return (or Enter) - progresses to the next Guest Listing in your Guest List
- Shift-Return (or Shift-Enter) - goes to the previous Guest Listing in your Guest List
After you've added as much info as you want to add, you can either click the red + button on the right side, or type Return (or Enter).
Please note that Return and Shift-Return shortcuts do not work in the Notes field, since Return is used to make new lines there. However, you can still Tab into and out of the Notes field. On new Guest Listings, you can Tab out of the Notes field to finish creating the Guest Listing and return focus to the Last Name field of the "New Guest" row at the top.
Most fields are freeform text fields, but # Of Tix and Pass Types will only allow you to enter numbers, while Status and Pickup only allow you to select options from a dropdown list. Priority is a simple Yes/No toggle, which you can click on or type a Space in to toggle on or off.
As you enter info, some of this info will show up as default data in the "New Guest" row at the top to help make data entry easier. For instance, if you're entering a group of Guest Listings that all have the same Affiliation, after you type in the first Guest Listing with that Affiliation, your subsequent Guest Listings will default to having the same Affiliation. Status, Affiliation, Requestor, and Pickup all will default to the values from the last Guest Listing you added, but can be changed at any time.
Organization-Wide Guest List Settings
Getting to the Organization Guest List Settings
- Go to Navigate>Organization in the top menu bar:
or click on the gear to the right of your Tour's name:

Setting Up New Guest List Pass Types
By default, a new Organization will only show the # Of Tix column, and will not have any additional Guest List Pass Types showing as options in your Guest List. In order to add new Guest List Pass Types for you and your users to request you'll just need enter:
- a short Abbreviation that will show in your Guest List grid (recommended 1-3 characters long)
- a Description of that Guest List Pass Type
- the material on which the Guest List Pass Type will be distributed
Once you add this info, your new Guest List Pass Type will appear in the Guest List section for each of your Tour Dates, and will be available for Users with Mobile Guest List or greater permissions to request on Master Tour Mobile and the my.eventric.com Web Portal.
Automated Guest List Notification Emails
In the Organization Guest List Settings section, you also can toggle Automated Guest List Notification Emails on or off. If you select Yes here, then whenever a Guest Listing is Approved, an email will automatically be sent to the email address in the Email Notify field of that Guest Listing.
For instance, here email@example.com is entered under Email Notify. When this Guest Listing is Approved,
an email is automatically sent to firstname.lastname@example.org, letting them know their tickets were approved:
Note that this email includes numbers of Tickets and each Pass Type that the Guest has been approved for.
To enter allotments for Tickets and/or Pass Types, just click into the Num Allowed field for a Ticket or Pass Type, and enter how many you have available for the event:
The totals at the bottom will show how many Tickets/Passes you have Remaining, and the number Remaining will turn red if you've gone over your allotment and have a negative number of Tickets/Passes remaining.
Setting a Num Allowed will not prevent Users from submitting new Guest List Requests.
Changing Statuses of Multiple Guest Listings
To change the Statuses of multiple Guest Listings at a time, just check the checkboxes of any Guest Listing whose status you want to change, then click the "Mark Requests" button in the top right corner to select a new Status for the Guest Listings:
