Table Management

Seshboard sessions take place in a virtual room, comprised of a stage and various tables.


The virtual room is designed to help you lead your sessions in a more natural and intuitive setting, and manage group dynamics in a similar way to how you would in an in-person environment.


Repositioning participants at different tables


Hosts can easily reposition people within the room.


Moving one person at a time


To move a person from one table to another, or to move them onto the stage, simply click and drag their avatar to the table you want them to sit at:



Note, you will need to make sure that the table you are moving them to has an empty seat available for them to sit in.


Randomizing seating within tables


You can randomize the seating order within tables to ensure that participants have a new conversation partner next time you run a Turn to your Neighbor activity. To do so, click the "Seating options" button in the bottom right hand side of your screen, and click "Mix within tables"


Randomizing seating between tables


You can randomize your table group composition at the click of a button. To do so, click the "Seating options" button in the bottom right hand side of your screen, and click "Mix between tables"


Creating table groups of a particular size


If you would like to reassign your participants into groups of a particular size (e.g. to create groups of four people), click the "Seating options" button in the bottom right hand side of your screen, and select the number of seats per table you would like on the menu, and click "Apply." Seshboard will create the required number of tables to seat your participants with your selected number of seats per table:
