RTS Usher App

RTS Usher App

Usher User

      You will be required to set up an email address for "usher" employees and configure them to use the usher app.
      NOTE: If you are not able to see your name in the Password list, an administrator with higher credentials will need to configure your settings.

      To add an email address, navigate in RTS to Setup --> Password
      Scroll through the permissions settings near to the bottom. Add your email address in the “Email Address” field under the Info Section.

      You will also find two app permissions:
  1. Usher App - Setting to True allows this user to log in and use the usher app.
  2. Usher App Not Clocked In - Setting to True allows this user to log in and use the usher app even if they are not currently clocked into RTS (useful for high-level users such as Owners, GM's, etc who may not be using the RTS Timeclock)

Server Setup

This screen allows you to input the server IP address. You'll enter the Local IP address of your RTS server in this window, or you can use "YourRTNnumber".formovietickets.com. The device you have the usher app on can be connected to the same RTS network as the RTS server, but all it needs is internet access. In regards to firewall settings, the Usher App operates entirely within your network and does not need outbound access.




To determine which of your machines is currently the server at your location, find the machine displaying [Server] in the title bar at the top of your RTS window.



From this terminal, navigate to Help > About and the IP of the current terminal will be the highlighted line as seen below:


You will type in your IP address and press "ADD TO HOMESCREEN". This will save the IP Address and allow easier access for the future.

Logging in

  2. Clear - This button clears the login credentials in the case that multiple users are operating the same device or you've entered in incorrect credentials

Scanning Tickets

The App will require access to the camera in order to scan for tickets. 

Once you've successfully logged into the usher app, from this window you can choose which camera to use, whether to turn the light on or off and finally, to scan tickets.

  2. The button next to that will switch which camera is being used (front facing vs rear facing)
  3. The Pause/Play button will start/stop the scan
NOTE: Tickets can only be picked up within a 45 minute time-frame before or after the performance starts.
