Everything you need to know about the latest tools and features across all of Social Tables software.
Though we think of ourselves first as a cloud-based technology company, we are also keenly aware that Social Tables users spend most of their working hours away from a computer. 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…Keep Reading
A client is asking you to plan a large event that may draw as few as 133 attendees or as many as 755. You’re concerned.

With the latest updates to the Social Tables sourcing platform, you have the power to search for only the properties that match your clients’ specific requirements with easy-to-use search filters.

Event planners think ahead. When they’re searching for potential event spaces on behalf of their clients—whether on your website or the Social Tables sourcing platform—you can be certain they’re also sketching the best layout options and designing the whole experience.

We’re always exploring new ways to give you more power to do that, and with our latest update, we’ve taken a big step in that direction. Now, when a planner encounters your presentation…Keep Reading

No two event spaces are exactly alike. There are endless variations in room shape, table size, chair width, and so on. This means that Social Tables diagrams have to be flexible—so we always ensure our product serves as many individuals as possible. But for a number of you, unique circumstances at your event space can continually get in the way of the seamless planning process you expect. Our staggered round template is a good tool for explaining this problem. When you click and drag it in a diagram, this feature produces a default row spacing of 4’ and column spacing…Keep Reading
We all know what it’s like to work with too many cooks in the kitchen—especially in event planning. But sometimes your event is complex and you need a lot of collaborators on one project, working on the same diagram. In situations like this, it can be difficult to coordinate the activity of different individuals, even when everyone has the same objective. Our customers have told us that they go to great lengths to avoid this kind of confusion. Some even make a second version of the original diagram in Social Tables when they’re working with multiple collaborators. That way, no…Keep Reading
