Product Update: Faster, More Capable Diagram Exports

Nowhere is this clearer than in the way our users prefer to interact with their diagrams. Export is one of our most popular features. Tens of thousands of users export their diagrams each week, and send them to clients as an email attachment, or print them out for teammates to mark in Sharpie, or use the exported file in whichever way makes the most sense for their business. We’re attentive…

Okay, so your diagram is perfect. The rounds are spaced correctly, the stage and buffet tables are in the right places, the wiring is mapped out, and the local vendor is on the same page thanks to real-time collaboration. Great! But what about your attendees? Do you know where each one is going to sit? Do you know which dish each of them has ordered, or if any of them have dietary restrictions? At Social Tables, we don’t think your diagram is complete until every attendee is accounted for—and that’s the thinking behind the most recent update to our attendee…
