Quick Tricks #3: Turn the quantity field into a checkbox

Time for another edition of Quick Tricks: our series of short, actionable tips for things you might not know you can do in Tito!

What? We’re going to show you how to swap out the default quantity field next to a ticket for a simple checkbox.

Why? While an order for lots of tickets is often a welcome sight, sometimes you just want people to be able to select one of something, for instance an RSVP to a private event. In this case you want the customer to be able to simply say “Yes, I’m coming” without giving them the option to add extra tickets. A checkbox is perfect for this.

How? It’s super simple—you just need to set your minimum and maximum order limit to 1.

What Does My Period Have to do With Work?

Tito recently introduced Period Days at work—an optional, but encouraged, extra paid day off each month for when you're on your period.

We're not the first company to do this. In fact, Japan has had a law since 1947 granting seiri kyuuka (“menstrual leave”) to women enduring painful periods. That said, Tito is the first —and so far only—company that I know of personally who’s doing something like this.

Previously, the only other period-at-work-related campaign I’d seen was Alice Bartlett’s Tampon Club. The idea: pop a load of sanitary products in the office bathrooms for people to use when they’re caught short while on their period. Simple but effective.

Paul first raised the idea of Period Days in our 1:1 call, prefaced by "there's something I'd like to introduce, but I'm not sure how it'd be received…" When he explained the concept to me and his thinking behind it, I told him Period Days got my vote.

We're a small team—just ten of us in total. And, being small, when we have an idea we'd like to implement, we're in the fortunate position to be able to just do it if people are generally in favour of it. Turns out people were (or at least no one objected), and so Period Days are now live at Tito.

2020 Tech Events You Should Be Looking Into (Yes, We Know It's Early)

It takes a long time to plan a tech conference, but takes a long time to choose which tech events to attend, too.

Conference organisers are releasing details of their events earlier and earlier these days to give attendees a better chance to plan ahead and prioritise their networking and learning opportunities ahead of time. With that in mind, we wanted to share some fresh tech events that have recently released early details for 2020 to give you an insight into what opportunities are already available and to help you get your calendar in order as early as possible.

We'd love to have you at our inaugural workshop!

We have a beautiful product that makes organising an event easy. We take a lot of pride in what we do because we care about giving organisers and their attendees a delightful experience.

There is a lot of depth to Tito, in some ways we're a lot like In-N-Out Burger. Bear with me on this. There is so much that you can do with our product, but not everyone knows of all of it's capabilities.

We want to help our customers become power users of Tito; to get the most value out of the Tito tools, and to help make their events successful in any way we can. That's why we have created our first half-day workshop. It will take place on Thursday the 21st of March in Tito HQ in Dublin, and we still have some seats left.

Tito Activities Explained (Finally!) – With Video

Activities is one of the most powerful features of Tito. And one of the most misunderstood…

Generally when we explain our Activities feature to customers, they say something like “Oh, that’s really cool! But that’s not what I would have expected it to do, based on its name”. That’s a fair point. In our defense, naming features is hard! But we want to help clear things up.
