How do I turn on Banquet Tables?
If you are conducting a fundraising event and are selling tables and table seats, this tool will help you manage your donor seating and funds received.
The Table Wizard allows you to set up tables that can be managed by Table Captains. Registrants can purchase individual seats or an entire table. An entire table can be populated by the Table Captains. Table members can be moved from table to table.
NOTE: Using the Table Wizard is NOT compatible with Group Registration and Registrant Types. You cannot use both table registration and group registration simultaneously.
Open the Table Wizard
The Table Wizard screen opens ...
Click the check box to turn on the Table Wizard.
The Table Wizard asks you to confirm ...
Confirm that you want to turn on the Table Wizard. Doing so will disable Group Registration and Registrant Types. Conversely, if you turn on Group Registration, then the Table Wizard will be disabled.
The Table Wizard and the Group Registration tools share the same prompt fields on the Landing Page. This is why they cannot be used simultaneously.
