Assign seating by guest type/category
You can use custom fields to control the how the automatic seat assignment by proximity places different categories of guests. E.g. whether it should place guests from different departments or geographical areas together or apart. You can use Weighting to set different levels of importance to different custom proximities and Bulk Edit to set multiple values quickly.
Note If you set the Weighting to 1.0, this means that it is as important as individual proximity and couples, families and groups might be separated to satisfy the custom proximity. So you might want to set it to, say, 0.3 (30% as important).
See the Custom field proximity pane for more details.
