You must create tables with the appropriate names and numbers of seats before you import guests (the names of tables are not case sensitive).

The case of table names and custom seat names is ignored during import.

If the table cell is left blank the guest will not be assigned a seat.

If you specify just the table or the seat cell is left blank, the guest will be assigned to the first empty seat, starting with seat 1 and proceeding clockwise. Guests will not be assigned to seats that are already assigned.

If Allow seat assignment with RSVP is not set to Any in the Preferences window you will need to set the RSVP status of any guests to be assigned seats to 'Accepted' during import or they cannot be assigned seats.

If you have problems you can undo_16Edit>Undo the import and try again.
