You can create an Event Table record manually, or automatically as part of the event setup process when you create a table ticket.

Assigning attendees to a table
To assign attendees and specific table numbers to tables, follow these steps.
Open an event package record.
On the Related menu, select Registrations.
Note the following details:
- Registration Package
- Event Ticket
Select the record you want to assign to a table from the Registration Associated View.
Use the Table field to select a table to assign the registrant to. The lookup field displays the Identifier and Event Name from the event table record.
In the New Event Table set fields 2, 3, 4, and 5, and then select Save on the action pane:
# Field Value 1 Identifier READ-ONLY. The solution-generated unique identifier for this record, empty until the record is saved. 2 Table Capacity The total number of seats available at the table. 3 Table Number The number assigned to this event table. 4 Event REQUIRED. A lookup to the Event record. 5 Event Ticket Enter the event ticket number (for example, ETKT-1234). 6 Registrations After you save the record, select Add Existing Registration here. A new menu then opens on the right side for assigning registrations to this table.
Use the look up to search for registrations by registration number (for example, REG-1234) to add to the event table. Select Add.
Each attendee is added to the table under the registrations. Select Save & Close to save the record. The list of tables associated to this event are displayed.
If a registrant is already assigned to a table, they cannot be assigned to another table. Users must manually remove the table that the registrant is assigned to and then users can assign registrants to a new table.
