Table Definition (TS only)
Select Maintenance > System Settings > Table Definition to access this function.
You can define up to 400 tables and assign each table to a revenue center. You cannot add a table until the appropriate revenue centers exist. The Floor Plan feature also uses table definitions.
Use the Tables Definition function to define tables in your restaurant to which employees can associate orders.

Description — Indicates the name of the table. The name should describe the location of the table in the restaurant. Type a maximum of 20 characters.
Alternate name — Specifies an alternate lookup name, up to four characters, to use for the table, when you select a table from the FOH screen. Use this method for alphanumeric table names. You cannot leave this option blank. Upon upgrade, the system populates ‘Lookup Name’ with the table number ID. Required Options: To reference table names with this alternate name, you must access Maintenance > Business > Store > Store Settings tab > Order Entry group and select ‘Alternate table name’ from the ‘Lookup method’ drop-down list under the ‘Tabs and tables’ group bar.
Revenue center — Specifies the revenue center in which the table resides and under which sales for the table are reported. If you want only select tables to override the revenue center assigned to the terminal, leave the revenue center blank for the tables not part of that select group.
Style — Defines square or round table design, with square selected as the default. This feature is only beneficial when using the Floor Plan feature.
Number of seats — Determines the number of seats allowed at the table. This feature is only beneficial when using the Floor Plan feature.
