How to create Tables in Table Planner

[/vc_column_text][gem_divider margin_top=”20″ margin_bottom=”10″][vc_column_text]Whether you want a sweetheart table, a top table or a long banquet style table that you’ve seen on Pinterest, you first need to consider what style will suit your venue and how many tables and guests your wedding venue can accommodate. Our suggestion is to speak to your venue and ask them what type of table arrangement they recommend for their space. They do have plenty of experience after all, and can talk you through the options to help you decide.

Once you know what shape, amount and seats around a table you need, it’s time to create the tables in Table Planner.[/vc_column_text][gem_divider margin_top=”20″ margin_bottom=”10″][vc_column_text]

How it works in Table Planner.

[/vc_column_text][gem_divider margin_top=”10″ margin_bottom=”10″][vc_column_text]Creating tables in Table Planner is easy. [/vc_column_text][gem_divider margin_top=”10″ margin_bottom=”10″][vc_column_text]

Follow these steps to create your tables:

[/vc_column_text][gem_divider margin_top=”10″ margin_bottom=”10″][gem_list type=”star” color=”10″]

  • Look for this symbol in the lower right hand corner.  A dark square table in profile with a pink circle with a plus in the lower right corner.
  • Press the button and this screen will appear.

[/gem_list][gem_divider margin_top=”10″ margin_bottom=”10″][vc_single_image image=”30378″ img_size=”large” alignment=”center”][gem_divider margin_top=”20″ margin_bottom=”20″][gem_list type=”star” color=”10″]

  • Select the amount of tables you want.
  • Select the amount of guests you want seated around each table.
  • Select the shape of your tables.
  • Select how you want the chairs to be positioned around the table.
  • When you press the ‘Add’ button to the top right of this box, your space will be populated with your tables.
  • You can create up to 10 tables in one go. If you need more tables, simply repeat this process.
  • If you want a mix of table shapes, for instance a rectangular top table and round tables for the other guests, repeat the above process for each table shape.

[/gem_list][gem_divider margin_top=”10″ margin_bottom=”10″][vc_single_image image=”30368″ img_size=”large”][gem_divider margin_top=”20″ margin_bottom=”20″][vc_column_text]

Move your Tables

[/vc_column_text][gem_divider margin_top=”10″ margin_bottom=”10″][vc_column_text]You may also want to change the position of your tables to reflect how you want your tables placed at your venue.

To do this:[/vc_column_text][gem_list type=”star” color=”10″]

  • Slightly press and hold on the table.
  • The Table will have slight ‘lift’ to it.
  • Drag the table to the desired position and let go.

Zoom in and out

[/vc_column_text][gem_divider margin_top=”10″ margin_bottom=”10″][vc_column_text]If you have created a lot of tables, you may want to zoom out to get a better overview of your tables, or zoom in to look at the details of where guests are seated. To do this, you can use the zoom button at the bottom right hand corner, to zoom in or out of your plan. Detail from Table Planner with two looking glasses, one with a plus sign and the other with a minus.

Alternatively, you can also use the pinch gesture, by holding your index finger and thumb closely together on the screen and then slowly move the fingers apart to zoom in. Do the reverse to zoom out. [/vc_column_text][gem_divider margin_top=”10″ margin_bottom=”10″][vc_single_image image=”30373″ img_size=”large” alignment=”center”][gem_divider margin_top=”20″ margin_bottom=”20″][vc_column_text]

Edit your Tables

[/vc_column_text][gem_divider margin_top=”10″ margin_bottom=”10″][vc_column_text]There may be times when you want to edit the details of individual tables, such as changing the shape, the number of guests around it or even naming the tables. You can easily do all of the above by going to into the Properties of the individual table.

To do this:[/vc_column_text][gem_list type=”star” color=”10″]

  • Lightly tap on the Table you want to change some details on.
  • A screen called ‘Edit Table’ will appear.
  • In this ‘Edit Table’ screen you can change the Table Name, total seats around the Table, Table shape and how the chairs are positioned.
  • Once you have made your changes, press the ‘Save’ button in the top right hand corner of the ‘Edit Table’ screen.

[/gem_list][gem_divider margin_top=”20″ margin_bottom=”20″][vc_single_image image=”30379″ img_size=”large” alignment=”center”][gem_divider margin_top=”20″ margin_bottom=”20″][vc_column_text]

Remove a Table

[/vc_column_text][gem_divider margin_top=”10″ margin_bottom=”10″][vc_column_text]You may also have added too many tables and want to remove one.

To do this:[/vc_column_text][gem_list type=”star” color=”10″]

  • Lightly tap on the Table you want to remove.
  • A screen called ‘Edit Table’ will appear.
  • In this ‘Edit Table’ screen you can remove your table by pressing ‘Delete Table’, which is written in red in the bottom middle of the ‘Edit Table’ screen.
  • A pop-up screen will appear asking ‘Are you sure?’. Press ok and your table will be deleted.
  • If you have guests at the table you are removing, the pop-up screen will inform you that these guests will be put back into the Guest List in an ‘unseated state’.
