We want to build a rolling event, ie a ticket that allows people to fish a lake with a 1 day ticket. the ticket is only valid for a day.

they can choose any day of the year between say march 1st and nov 31st.

Is this possible, if so what would be the best way of doing this?

It’s possible. What you could do is create an event that starts on march 1st and runs through nov 31st. Then sell the tickets like any other event. The ticket scanner app will accept/reject the ticket based on whether it has already been scanned. The attendee entry in the attendee reports will mark be marked as attended when the ticket is scanned.

If you need to set registrations limits for each date, then I’d suggest using the recurring events manager to create a series of events (one event for each date).

For people who want to purchase a ticket, but do not have a date in mind, we are using the EE Groupon add-on with gift certificates ( that we issue on the site . Customers purchase the certificate and then use the certificate code in the Groupon entry field when registering for the session event.

We have to add the Groupon/Gift Certificate code manually, so it is not ideal, but our gift certificate business is small. You could also add the transaction ID from the rolling event to the Groupon codes and have the customer us that for registering on the day and not bother with the certificate.
