Known Issues

All Users

  • There is no control to delete or hide content yet, but this in progress


  • Need way to archive (hide) events that are not going to happen (cancelled show, denied inquiry, etc) from Gig Mailbox
  • Editing track information after uploading will not let you save without uploading the same MP3 file again

Event Managers

  • There is no way to change an Event into a Gig to “do booking”. You will need to create a Gig instead, and contact [email protected] to delete the original event.
  • It is not possible to have 2 Events happening at different times at the same venue yet.  Venues with more than 1 floor currently need to have each floor listed as a venue in order to specify which “room” it’s in.   Therefore, venues with multiple rooms will not have 1 page that shows all events happening at that venue.
  • It is not possible to have a private venue, we are adding a control for “unlisted” venues soon.  Such as a home address or a “one-time only” venue such as a field.
