When you are configuring the number of seats on the table, you may choose from the following two options for the UI layout of the tables:
1. Fixed: Total number of seats selected by you will be shown upfront to all the users in the social lounge.
For e.g., if you choose a total number of seats to be 7 on the table along with the 'Fixed' option, then a total of 7 empty seats will appear on the table immediately.
2. Expanding: If you choose this option, then only one extra seat will appear on the table instead of the total number of seats selected by you. As users start joining the table, the number of empty seats will keep increasing by one as long as the maximum no. is not reached.
For e.g., if you choose a total number of seats to be 7 along with the 'expanding' option, then a total of 4 empty seats will appear on the table immediately. When 4 people have joined the table, the 5th empty seat will automatically appear and so on until the table is full.
