Make a virtual seating chart online using tools on sites such as WeddingMapper.com, Scholastic.com, WeddingWire.com and SocialTables.com, as of 2015. Some sites offer seating chart tools for use in weddings or classrooms, while others allow for more general designs.
The Classroom Set-Up Tool on Scholastic.com allows teachers to create classroom seating charts according to various room configurations. It contains drag-and-drop options for choosing the room shape, placing furniture items such as doors, black boards and computers along with student desks. It also contains a section where you may enter the names of students, then place a marker to match the student at any location in the room. WeddingMapper.com offers a similar interactive tool for designing a seating chart for a wedding, with options for placing elements such as a dance floor or gift table along with guest tables. It also allows you to enter the names of the guests and then drag a marker for them to a table.
WeddingWire.com also offers a similar wedding seating chart tool that features a customizable grid for accommodating various room sizes along with tools for placing tables and tracking guests. After finishing the chart, you have the option to print it out or email it to other parties. The seating chart software from Social Tables is capable of handling various event types and functions on mobile devices as well as computers.
