How do I assign registrants to tables?
Assigning table numbers/names to people is accomplished with the Registrant List's bulk edit tool. The basic idea is to select all of the people that you want to sit at a certain table and then bulk edit that table's field number/name. In order to assign a person to a table, you need to have a field in which you will store their table number/name.
