★ Getting Started in VenueOps
Welcome to VenueOps! Whether you are new to your venue or your venue is new to EB, we're glad you're here.
This page is designed to introduce you to VenueOps from the very basics to a thorough understanding of the program. In each section there will be several webinars to attend or watch as well as related articles to read. If you have any questions along the way, please be sure to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or 865-966-4900.
If your venue is new to VenueOps, your client success manager/specialist will be working with you to establish a training plan which reflects your workflow. If you are new to an established venue, be sure to consult with other users in your building so that events and other information are added to your venue's account in a consistent manner; this is vital for reporting purposes.
Getting Started: Setting Up Your Account
The first thing we'll need to do is to set up your VenueOps account, and this section will help you understand the basics upon which VenueOps is built. If you're new to an existing VenueOps account, this section can help you understand how the information you're seeing is used in the application.
In this 30-minute webinar, we discuss two concepts which are key to understanding how to use VenueOps: event structure and status.

Setting Up Inventory and Pricing
VenueOps allows you to create a library of the inventory for your events, whether it's food and beverage, furniture, equipment, or labor. You are able to track inventory stock levels, and also add pricing.
Detailing events is all about managing event requirements, which we do in VenueOps via items and instructions. We’ll discuss not only how to add requirements to your event, but also best practices and strategy behind the different item types and instructions. .
Space usage tracks the specific purpose for which a booked space is being used, such as load in, event, dark, load out. In this webinar we’ll discuss what usage is used for, how to set up your custom usages, and how to add them to your events.
Getting Started curriculum is still under construction — we're developing our training webinars and we'll be updating this page as we go. In the meantime, we have lots of content on the help desk for you to explore. You're also welcome to contact us for training and consultation!
