How to copy your guest names into our seating chart templates

Creating your own printable seating chart is much easier than you think! This post is a tutorial on how to copy and paste your guest list into our templates from a spreadsheet. This method works with other forms of documents that have text recognition as well, such as Word docs and PDFs.


This video tutorial example shows you how to setup a seating chart that has 11 tables using our 15-table template. It also shows you how to easily copy and paste your guest list into Templett. The step-by-step written instructions are below the video.

Step 1: Have your template ready

Open up the Templett Designer in a  browser with the template that you have purchased from us. Add or delete any 'tables' as required.
