Preassigning Reservations

Preassigning Reservations
Watch Video:

1. When you have reservations lined up, it is a good practice to pre-assign them to a table. Pre-assigning a reservation to a table will allow you to know where your guests are going to sit and at what time.


2. To pre-assign a reservation to a table, drag and drop the reservation to the table you wish to add it to. 


*Note, you can only assign four reservations to a single table. 


3. You do not need to worry about timing your reservations as TableWatch will automatically check to make sure that reservations do not overlap and if they do an error message will appear. 


*note: when the error message shows, click "OK" to return to the Floor Plan
