PerfectTablePlan v3.1 well under way

Since the last newsletter we have been working hard on lots of improvements and new features for PerfectTablePlan v3.1. We have also been making some significant 'under the hood' changes to prepare the way for more enhancements in the future.

As software development schedules are notoriously hard to predict, our policy is not to announce firm release dates. This means we don't get pressurised into releasing  insufficiently tested and buggy software. We will release the next version when it is ready. Hopefully before the end of the summer. Perhaps.

We will send out a newsletter as soon as v3.1 is available. Anyone who has a valid version 3 licence key will be able to use v3.1 without requiring a new licence key.

If there are any improvments or bug fixes you would really like to see in v3.1 please email your suggestions to .  

Power-user tips

Try the following to make you more productive:

  1. Use the guest, group or table Notes fields to store extra information not covered by other fields. For example, you can record in the guest's Notes field whether the guest has paid (for a commercial event) or what gift they bought (for wedding thank you letters).
  2. Store multiple meal courses in the guest Meals field by separating them with commas. For example soup,fish,ice cream. The number of each course will be separately totaled in the Statistics pane. 
  3. The contents of the Notes or Meal fields can be displayed/printed in the Floor plan pane:
