This document explains how to setup and use the Social Tables interface through ReServe Cloud. This interface is available for organizations in the Enterprise tier.
This interface allows a room diagram to be automatically generated based on ReServe Cloud details such as Location, Attendance, and Setup Style. Up to one diagram can be created for each location that a function is booked in. Once the diagram is created, a link is maintained to it in ReServe Cloud, which allows the same diagram to be viewed later from within ReServe Cloud.
Social Tables Account
A Social Tables account is required to use this interface. Social Tables must be purchased separately. Go to http://socialtables.com to register for an account. A unique Social Tables account is required for each organization user that will use the interface. All accounts must be created within the same Social Tables team to ensure that diagrams will be accessible by all interface users.
Social Tables must create diagrams/venues for your rooms before you can use the interface. Contact Social Tables support for assistance.
