While we think that creating seating charts is at the base level very fast and straight forward, there are a couple strategies that you can take for making it most efficient!
Use the duplication feature! After making a row or two, instead of drawing more rows simply duplicate the existing ones. If you have 2, then it is 4, and after 8! On top of duplicating rows, after building out a section you can duplicate it and then flip it horizontally to make mirrored sections.
Another tip would be to not add seat numbers it before you duplicate if you are going to be then duplicating a section and flipping it horizontally for another section. The reason is that if there are already seat numbers assigned, the system will not try to find a new pattern meaning you will have to re-label every seat.
If you are simply creating a single section of seats and the seat numbers are the same, it would be a great idea to do the seat numbers first and then simply duplicate.
