Customise table management settings

Who is this article for?
This article is for restaurant managers or owners using Square for Restaurants with a Square for Restaurants Free, Plus, or Premium subscription.

Before you begin

Square for Restaurants table management features help you streamline your staff interactions with guests who are seated for service.

The two main settings you can customise for table management are:

  • Floor plan indicators: you can display how much time has passed since a bill has been opened, and enable colour indicators to show on the Square for Restaurants POS after a set amount of time.

  • Cover tracking: you can track the individual seating at each table to help determine which customer ordered which dish each course.

Floor plan indicators are available to Square for Restaurants Free, Plus and Premium subscribers, while cover tracking is available for Plus and Premium subscribers.

  1. Log in to your Square Dashboard and click Settings > Device Management > Points of sale > POS devices.

  2. Add a Point of Sale or access an existing device.

  3. On the Edit Device page, choose your settings for Cash Management and Offline Mode.

  4. Configure your settings for Open Bills, Floor Plans, Seating, and Coursing.
