How do I set online capacity from tables?

  1. Set online capacity calculation from tables

  2. Create room(s)

  3. In the created room add a table

The total capacity for online reservations will then be the sum of the capacities of the online tables.

Attention:

  • Changing the online capacity calculation may affect the acceptance of online reservations and work in the electronic reservation book. We recommend making the change outside the establishment’s opening hours.
