========================================================
Design and layout of the site:

The entire site will be template driven (including admin sections):
There will be a folder in the root directory called templates.

Template naming will be as follows, for each section:

[url removed, login to view]
[url removed, login to view]
[url removed, login to view]
[url removed, login to view]
[url removed, login to view]
[url removed, login to view]
[url removed, login to view] (homepage)
etc,etc
-----------------------------------
All data will be populated on templates by {example} or %example% fields for easy editing/moving.

Site will have a fully functional search engine that can be searched by event name, event location, and event times.

-----------------------------------
Option’s on the homepage

Top events:

A area on the homepage where the top 3 events rotate

Hot tickets:
A list of 10-15 events that rotate on the homepage

User customization:

Users will be able to input their zip code and the system will approximate the nearest, if not right on, events scheduled and remember this option for 30 days using cookies.
========================================================
Depending on the capabilities of xml from EI

User sign up for X amount bonus in your account balance (Changeable in the admin panel)… this is to save users info for when they order.
Shopping CART! fully functional
User/customer login/control panel (of course templates for easy editing) as is the whole site

Keeps all users info for next order
history or orders
edit profile/info
account balance (want a option to credit users account for orders/specials ..etc)
((( This is not an escrow system, only a way for us to give credit. – The customer will have no other use for their account balance. )))


========================================================
SITE/Super Admin's Panel: admin

This is where all the admin functions come together.
Will need option to have different level of users/admins full/custom access to functions

Add/Veiw employees for employee admin panel access
View orders
View site users
Newsletter
Give User/All users account credit/set a credit award system. Ex. For signing up/for each order.
Banner/Ad Management and tracking
View/print timecards
Gift cert. options
Email receipt of transaction for phone calls(simple form)
Send a message to a certain employee/admin
Inside is a “notes posting” place. These notes are company wide for all to see.
Reason : on-sale notes/passwords, to-do list etc. (like a shout-board - I have one)


Full access through frames to EI/ticketsnow/fedex/whitepages.. This is the only webpage they will need

-----------------------------------


Lower level admin logon to different admin section for employees : employeeadmin

Reason of this is to allow access to the following:

Email receipt of transaction for phone calls(simple form),
Clocking in and out,
Gift cert tracking/printing/logging,
Newsletter sending,
Send a message to a certain employee/admin
Inside is a “notes posting” place these note are company wide for all to see. reason for is on-sale notes/passwords.
To-do list
etc.

Full access thru frames to EI/ticketsnow/fedex/whitepages.. This is the only webpage they will need

========================================================
Banner/Ad Management and Tracking :

Will need full click/impression tracking (can view the stats in the admin panel)
This will just provide a tracking url that we add to link or image to trace.
IP spamming protection

========================================================
Newsletter and email address handling:
Should handle html/text and send emails in batches or 25/50 per hour... changeable in site admin panel

A newsletter program that can handle unlimited user groups and users and should be mysql database.
The way it will work, is that each section on the site will have a “signup for our newsletter” option to hear about (X) events.


Admin Panel:
The admin panel is where you can send newsletter, view/add/delete users
Need an option where admins can add banner/aff. code to the header or footer
Also need simple reporting that shows how many newsletters were viewed, how many banners where clicked

Options:

View/add/delete users
Send newsletter to all
Send newsletter to (choose group)
Also have a filter search (age, location, interest in what section)
Export list in (csv, txt, and xls)

========================================================





Gift Cert. Tracker located in the admin/employee panel.

When an employee/admin creates a gift certificate, they are taken to a form that has these fields:

(Date issued) (Gift cert#) (Customer) (Amount) (Expires)
Filled in auto filled in auto

After all info is entered, user clicks enter then the script prints the invoice.

When we receive the gift cert. back, we go to this panel and enter the number or click on the right one and click “redeemed”.

There is a section for expired/used gift certs. All go here when done.

========================================================
Fourm = Already have Vbulletin and installed (a place to build interest in the site)

A place for users to discuss upcoming concerts, fan clubs, password, releases..etc


========================================================
Ordering system

Custom ordering system (Referrer to [url removed, login to view] ordering system.)
Custom fields on the order form – form data is passed off to EI (template)
User has 2 options 1 sign up for a free account and receive X amount for next order and making ordering super easy
Or just order.

Keeps all users info for next order
