#3 Four Main Tabs

There are four main tabs at the top of the allseated dashboard.

1. Details – allows you to add vendors, other users, premade venues, etc.

2. Seating – This is where most of the planning takes place. Here you will create floorplans, add objects, labels, and measurements. This is where the design happens.

3. Guests – This tab allows you to enter all of your guests for your event. Stay tuned for a follow-up post focusing only on the “Guests” tab.

#5 Enter Floorplan Details

This includes:

-Floorplan name

-Dimensions of room

-Option to select color. I prefer to leave mine white, at least initially.

#6 Add Objects to Floorplan

Under the “Objects” option tab, you have three pulldown menus to help you select the type of object you’d like to insert into your floorplan.

-View – The “Library” option gives you access to all types of objects.

-Category – You can select type of object you’re looking for here (i.e. tables, furniture, flooring, etc.)

-Type – Allows you to get even more specific (i.e. option to search tables by “round”, “oval”, etc.)

#7 Object Options

Under the “Objects” tab, you also have six different orange button options:

-Text, two types of custom shapes, lines, ceremony chairs, and draping/airwalls

#8 Edit Selected Objects

-Once you’ve placed an object onto your floorplan, you have several editing options when an object is selected. Here are the basics:

-Name (allows you to label your object)


-Table #

-Clone option that automatically copies and pastes the selected item in the direction of whatever arrow you select.

-Additional detail options like place and table settings.

Play around with the platform and I think you’ll find that it’s pretty intuitive and easy to learn!
