VDU Chart pane
The VDU Chart pane shows a scrolling list of guest seat assignments. It is possible to show this pane in full screen mode. This can be very useful for displaying on a VDU or plasma screen at a venue. But we strongly recommend you test this before an event to ensure that you your hardware/software is compatible with the screen and you have the correct cable.
It is not possible to change the plan from this pane.
Change the Display drop-down list to change the information displayed:
•Last First to display by guest, with the last name in column 1 and first name in column 2. Ordered alphabetically by last name. Anonymous guests are not shown.
•First Last to display by guest, with the first name in column 1 and last name in column 2. Ordered alphabetically by last name. Anonymous guests are not shown.
•Display name to display by guest, with the display name in column 1. Ordered alphabetically by last name. Anonymous guests are not shown.
•Group to display by group, with the group name in column 1. Ordered alphabetically by group name.
•Select custom field of type selection to display by the values of that field. Ordered alphabetically by value.
Change the By drop-down depending on whether you wish to show seat numbers along with the table/row.
If you have a single E-shaped table, then the name of the section (sprig) is shown instead of the table name.
Change the Columns to change the number of columns of guest information displayed.
Change the Text percentage to change the percentage of the space occupied by scrolling text. The remainder will display the floor plan. Set it to 100% to hide the floor plan.
