Guests pane

Top  Previous  Next

The unknown_adult_16Guests pane shows all the guests in the current plan as individuals.

The icon shown for a guest is determined from the details you have entered about their gender and age.

Guests who have declined or cancelled are shown with strikethrough text. Guests who have not been assigned to seats are shown in bold. Guests who are locked are shown with underlined text.

Select from the Mode drop-down list to change the behaviour of the pane (see below).

Type text in the searchSearch field to find guests by name. The default behaviour is to hide non-matching names. E.g. if you type jo it will hide all guests without jo in their name (case is ignored). Click the search_cancelcancel icon to clear the field.


You can change the behaviour to jump to the first matching name by changing Guest/group search in the Preferences window to selects first match. E.g. if you type jo it will first try to find a guest with a name beginning with jo (e.g. john) and if it can't find one it will try to find a guest whose name contains jo.
