Setting and Customizing your Tables


Manually Creating and Setting Tables

On the left hand side you will see all of your table options:
  1. Click on the Table type gets placed on the seating map. NOTE: Tables can't be dragged and dropped from left hand menu. 
  2. Drag and place where you want the table located in the seating plan section. 
  3. Click on the table to customize
You can customize the tables  in a few different ways: ​
  1. Duplicate and Delete tables 
  2. Change the Table Label. NOTE: This is what is tied to the automatic seating with your excel columns. 
  3. Create a table name that can be seen from the iOs app. 
  4. Change the amount of seats and the rotation of the table
  5. More options will allow you to change the Starting Number, Sequence of the seats and the direction of the seats. 
PRO TIP: It's typically easiest to set up one table that you need and then make duplicates of that table by clicking on the duplicate icon. Will need to change the Table Label, but makes it easy to have tables of all the right dimensions much quicker. 

The group of images below demonstrate how most of the above will work visually.

If you're curious about how to do rowed seating, scroll to the bottom of the article for more information. 


Using Rows 

When using Rows instead of tables, the best set up is to create a single row for each entry. This will allow a Number or Letter be associated for each row going across.

If you have a seating block consisting of multiple rows, create individual zkipster rows for each one, and change the name on the Table Label for which number the seats start on.

Example below: My first Seating block was labeled 1A and was extended to 10 seats and reduced to 1 row. I made a copy and renamed the copy to 1B row and changed the seating to start at 11 in the more options drop down. This way I still have everything in seating block one, but can seat my guests and find them quickly by row and seat label.

Now you are ready to seat your guests!
PRO TIP: If you have multiple tables with the same dimensions, create one and then duplicate the table as many times as you need.

NOTE: If you need to delete a table it’s right next to the duplicate button.
