Using Serpentine Tables

Video Tip - Go to the 8:04 mark of the video to view information on adding square tables to Floorplans and manipulating them.

You can add serpentine tables one at a time or in multiples with an end-to-end or circular layout pattern for a quick way to build a layout of the same table type. You can also quickly make edits to a single serpentine table or to multiple serpentine tables at the same time.

To Add a Single or Multiple Serpentine Tables:

  1. Click on the "Floorplans" tool button on the Event Dashboard - OR - use the Quick Launch or Switch Event tool to select the appropriate Event and the "Floorplans" tool.
  2. Find the appropriate Floorplan to which you want to add elements and click on it.
  3. On the Floorplan Dashboard, select the "Library" tab in the left column and click on the "Tables & Seating" icon TablesSeatingIcon.png.
  4. Click-and-hold on the appropriate icon for the serpentine table you want and drag it to where you want to place it on the Floorplan canvas (you can always move/adjust it later).
  5. A form will appear that lets you edit:
    • Color
    • Label
    • Layout pattern - end-to-end (in snakelike fashion) or in a circle
    • Number of tables to add (if you selected the circle pattern, the system will automatically use 4 tables to create the circular pattern) 
  6. Click "Save" when you are finished. You will be taken back to the Floorplan Dashboard where you can view and adjust the position of the table by dragging-and-dropping it.

To Edit/Duplicate/Delete a Serpentine Table:

  1. Click on the appropriate table on the canvas.
  2. A dynamic menu of editing options will appear in the top-left of the canvas. To make an edit, click on the appropriate item. From left to right, the options include:
