Ability to filter events by number of tickets available?

I'm looking for events that will fit my whole group, but many events that we would otherwise be interested in don't have enough tickets available for us.  This is made frustrating by the fact that there doesn't seem to be a way to filter events by the number of tickets available, meaning I have to work through all the events that don't have enough tickets, and remember them, to find anything that does.

Is there a method to do this that I'm missing?  If not, is there a way to suggest this feature for the future?

You would be able to do this from the events excel file located here: https://www.gencon.com/experience/find

Once its downloaded you can format the contents into a table and then filter on column 'AD' to only show events with certain remaining ticket numbers. There are also columns for event type, date & time, and many others to allow you to filter on as well.

This obviously isn't as nice as having the ability to do it on the website, but if you're savvy enough and have the software capable of opening the file, this should suit your needs.

If you're looking to play Pathfinder, Nascrag should be able to still accommodate you in most of our slots.

A good source that will show you how many tickets are left can be found at http://gencon.eventdb.us/index.php

It is not updated live but they seem to download information every 12 hours.  The next update is 11:51PM.

If you go to the High Programmer site for Gen Con 2018, on the search page you can use "X or more tickets available" feature as part of the search.
