What do table joins do?  

They are essential you your diary set up. Table joins help the system calculate accurate availability results. They let ResDiary know all possible combinations of tables so you never miss a booking. 


All your commonly-used table joins should be set up so internal staff users and online customers can book on larger table spaces that only exist when you individual tables are used together.


Note: You must add table joins up to the maximum single table party size you would take. When you put your diary online for bookings (in Settings>>Online Settings) you have the option to set the maximum party size for online reservations (eg. no larger than a table of 8 online). This will mean that online customers won't be able to automatically book the larger joins you create but you will need them added to take big bookings internally.
