Reusable Ticket Defaults/Profiles (as per Venues and Organizers)
I would like to see Wootickets integrate a list of default ticket profiles, where we can fill out the commonly used fields we re-type hundreds of times. Almost all of the ticket fields could be automatically populated based on a template, with changes and variations made as needed.
For my personal needs, 99% of the hundreds of tickets I create every month could be selected from a list of 8 profiles, with information being spit out for: names, description, price, start/end sales, stock, etc.
The two fields that would require some consideration for advanced functionality would be:
variable time frames of ticket sales
start [immediately | in + hrs/days | select date & time as normal]
end [when event begins | +/- hrs/days of event start | select date & time as normal]
incremental SKU #
Set a base for the SKU plus automatically populated or incremented wild cards. For example, SKU# SAMPLE**** where the **** is populated with an incremental count (ex. SAMPLE0001, SAMPLE0002, etc.) or where the **** is populated with a unique ID (ex.. SAMPLEy6C9, SAMPLE9z2I, etc.)
You have already developed this functionality for Venues and Organizers, and it saves me TONS of time. I'd just like to see it replicated for tickets.
To best explain my idea (need) I will create a scenario to explain. At the present time when an event is added to the calendar the only way to activate ticket sales is to create a new ticket. For some this is not ideal. The same "event" may occur repeatedly but not following any consistent timeline and the same "ticket" may apply. This makes creating a recurring event impossible and also forces creation of a new ticket for the same thing. Example:
Event: Stand Up Paddle Board Yoga
Date: July 3, 2013
Tickets: (a) single ticket with no board provided $XX (b) single ticket with board provided $XX
The same "event", in this case a class may be added to the calendar again in the same week, the next week, month etc. - but on different days of the week.
The "tickets" available would not change and it would be nice to be able to use the product ID from WooCommerce to add the tickets to the event.
Hope that makes sense.
We’ll be looking into this for a future release.
please! This would be such a time saver!

This really needs to be a feature. In my opinion, a reusable WooCommerce product, there seems to be way too many WooCommerce ticket product types when creating events. They do not delete on their own when an event is deleted or when an event ended. And creating the same ticket over and over is very time consuming.
This would also save me an untold amount of time. Every ticket I am planning to sell through the platform would conform to a template. The only variable would be the date.
Is there an extension that can provide this feature?

Absolute must be able to duplicate event including all tickets. Add Event Start Date variable to SKU template or to Ticket name to identify ticket to event.

agree! Can you please inform us what the status is?
Really would like to see some movement on this.
Is there a time frame for this yet? It's a must for us so I'd like to know if I should spend the time creating something myself or if this will be implemented in the next few months.

Please add this... it would be fantastic if we could use the same product previously created for another event!
+1 - much needed, would change this from a good plugin to a great plugin!
Another vote for a duplicate ticket option!
Duplicate ticket option would be splendid
+1 for this feature for 2 customer projects at the moment. Absolutely necessary if you deal with many events and tickets.
There has been some requests for this function in other User Voice threads so I am hoping the cumulative votes will move this forward
There are lots of us out there who need to duplicate events and / or tickets.
Yes, the ticket fields templates is a helpful option and yes, both https://wordpress.org/plugins/duplicate-tec-event/ or https://wordpress.org/plugins/post-duplicator/ are good additions but neither duplicate the tickets.
It would be nice to see tickets handled the same as venues and organizers. Let us save ticket types - including custom fields and price - and then select from an existing list or create a new ticket. 95% of the tickets we sell are the same name, description, price and field sets. It is a pain to create a new ticket each and every time (although saved fieldsets helps).

This is mission critical and I can't believe it's not built into the software already. I have to eat the cost of this software since I can't use it at all.
Please include the ability to configure WooCommerce product metadata with this as well. In particular, the "product category" is one that we use for pretty much EVERY ticket created.
Would definitely be useful for some of our clients that have many tickets per event. Their events typically happen yearly, so re-entering the tickets information each time is not ideal. Re-using the same event is a cumbersome option as they have to delete the old orders and attendees each year. (BTW, the Deleted Attendee count never resets back to zero after the deletes). Hope this ticket template feature is added soon. After selecting a template, it should also allow you to make any changes like the Ticket Fieldsets do. Thanks.
This feature would be a great help for those of us who are waiting on the recurring events creating separate tickets feature. If we could have ticket templates it would save a ton of time trying the same events on different days. For example, we have 3 tickets per event that NEVER change. If we just had a ticket template it would make creating the events significantly faster.

We have a membership organisation that has similar events regularly. Would be very useful to be able to have predefined tickets to select from.

Absolutely a MUST. I am creating tickets for an organization's monthly luncheon, and I have the same repeating tickets (members & guests) every month. My variables would also be the start/end timeframes, but the costs would remain the same. My WooCommerce products are becoming populated with the same "products" (monthly tickets) that look the same, but are really for separate months. I don't need SKUs, so that part isn't important for my needs, but I like the others' ideas. Thank you!
