Get started with setting up tables

Once logged into your resOS account, go to settings-> tables -> floor plan. The full overview will show up, and you can begin to set up your tables. If you haven't set up your tables yet, you can add them under "add table". If you already added all your tables to the system then the tables will automatically show up under "place tables". Afterward, click on a table and move it to its designated place in your restaurant. It's possible to zoom in/out, so the overview fits your restaurant's space. You can also drag and drop tables to place them and move them around when needed in no time.

Creating a manual booking has also never been easier. Click on a table and the "new booking" page will show.
