Re: Time Ticketing System

September 18th 2020

Re: [talk] Time Ticketing System Hi Sarah,Check out Appointlet. It's what we decided to use since we also had no budget, and the need to begin scheduling museum house visits.

We're a university art museum that is currently open only to campus audiences. We're hoping to reopen to the public when the students leave at the end of the semester (which is early this year). We will need to do timed tickets and are looking at platforms. Cost is an issue and we ...Continue Reading
