Park Attendance 2.0

The Park Attendance report is a robust report to get attendance at your facility using many parameters to account for the different ways customers track attendance.  For example, you may grant access to your facility with barcoded tickets, membership cards, sessions, sessions with barcoded tickets, events, events with sessions (ie. waterfall), etc.  Your particular attendance number may include only sessions checked-in with will call, but not the tickets tied to those sessions, or you'd result in a double count.  Or maybe you have waterfall events where each attendee of an event also has a session, so you want to count just one or the other, but not both to avoid a double count.  This report accommodates those scenarios, and as a result, there are many parameters.
