Create Floor Plan Set

  • Updated

You would like to display your business in your cash register with a floor plan and thus make your staff members' daily work easier? In this How-To, you will learn how to create a floor plan in which you can graphically represent tables of different sizes. You can link them to the tables you have created as resources.   

You can also create special areas as elements for your floor plan. For example, you can create tables without seats for Take Away sales or simple room elements to which you can assign separate designations such as “staff table”.
