Table Management Overview

Easily manage your tables and availability

Serve your customers better by effectively tracking and managing your tables. Waitlist Me makes it simple to know the best place to seat your next customer. You can see at a glance what tables are available, how long they have been occupied, and more, so you can make smarter decisions faster.
Our Pro service has our core set of table management features, and Platinum includes additional floor plan and section management views. This video shows how both options work:

Section Management – Waitlist Me Pro's grid view lets you group tables into a framework that is fast and easy to understand, so you know where to seat the next customer. Tables can be put into sections and sorted by availability to make comparisons and decisions simple. If you organize your tables and sections differently by day or time, Waitlist Me also gives you the flexibility to switch between layouts. The Platinum subscription also offers full spatial floorplan layout views.

Simple Seating – Assign customers to one or more tables upon arrival or when a table becomes available. Quickly see open tables and to track how long they have been occupied, so waiting customers can be efficiently assigned to tables.

Intuitive Views – By using a dynamic representation of tables and sections, Waitlist Me simplifies the amount of data needed in various scenarios, so you can make smarter decisions faster. Views are flexible, and you can choose from several options depending on what best suits your needs and preferences.

Flexible Sorting – Different people in your business may want to see table availability in different ways, so grid view includes multiple sorting options to make it easy to view key information according to various needs.

Floorplan Views – Our Platinum plan has additional views of floorplans, sections, and layouts to provide more insights and control over assigning and serving customers. See your tables as they appear in your restaurant and optionally group them into rooms.

Analytics and Reports – Spot trends and make improvements. Use real-time section and table stats within the app to help your operations run smoother. Also, get more insights and do deeper analysis by running reports from your account online.

Visual Statuses – Beyond tracking whether a table is available or not and how long it has been occupied, you can define other statuses and have them display in different colors. For example, make it easy to see which tables are waiting for a bill, are ready to be bussed, or are unavailable.

Simple Setup – Name your resources and group them into sections & layouts (or organize your server rotation if you don’t have defined sections) for more effective management.
