Using Tables and Rows

Create, edit, and sort tables and rows

Updated over a week ago

With Diobox, you can easily create and manage seating arrangements by creating visual representations of your tables without the need to draw the entire floor plan.

Create a Table

Step 1: Open your event and go to Seating. Tap the New Table button.

Step 2: Enter a table name, and, optionally, any notes.

Step 3: Select a table shape: circle, row, half-round, square, or rectangle.

Note: A row is a type of "table" with seats on one side, such as those used for fashion shows.

Step 4: Drag the seat count slider to the size of your table. The diagram of your table changes as you adjust the slider.

Step 5: Tap the Save button.

Seating Limits per Table

Each table type has a different limit of seats:

  • Circle - 40 seats

  • Row - 100 seats

  • Half-Round - 40 seats (20 on top and 20 on bottom)

  • Square - 80 seats (20 on each side)

  • Rectangle - 80 seats (20 on each side)

Edit Table Attributes

You can edit your table's attributes including name, notes, shape, and seating capacity for each table.

In Seating, select the Edit Table button.

Note: If you reduce the number of seats in your table, any guests who were assigned to those seats will no longer have a seat assignment.

Delete a Table

If you no longer need a table in your event, you can delete it.

In Seating, find the table you want to delete, tap its Action Menu, and choose Delete Table.

Note: All guests who were assigned seats at that table will no longer have a seat assignment.

Sort Tables

You can sort the list of tables in various ways to help with seating management.

In Seating, select the View Options button and choose the sort method.

View Arrival Status

In the iOS app, on event day you can view the real-time arrival status of guests assigned to each table.

In Seating, select the View Options button and choose Show Arrivals.

Share Tables

You can share a printer-friendly version of tables with event stakeholders outside of Diobox, such as sponsors and table captains, using publicly accessible links.
