If you already have guest details (for example in an email or organiser address book, spreadsheet or text file) you can import the data directly into PerfectTablePlan, rather than re-typing it.
PerfectTablePlan can import information in 3 major formats:
|•||Excel CSV (Comma Separated Value ) - A text file that can be produced by Excel (select File>Save as and choose .csv as the file type). Columns and rows are delimited by commas and carriage returns, respectively. " and , characters are quoted.|
|•||Delimited text data - A text file with the user's choice of delimiters (separators). Many applications can produce data in this form. Excel CSV is a special form of delimited text data.|
|•||vCard file - vCard files be exported from most applications with address books, including Outlook, Palm Pilot desktop and Apple Address Book.|
As a simpler alternative to importing you can also use the Insert guests scratch-pad window.
Note PerfectTablePlan cannot import table, seating or proximity data, as there is no established format for such data.
