Multiple groups into one area - Adding a group buffer
If you want to auto-confirm multiple groups into one area but don't want to over-fill it. Eg. If you have an area with 10 capacity and you are happy to put a group of 5 and 3 into that same area but at the same time you don't want to put two groups of 5 in the same area. You can add a "multi-group" buffer which will give the two groups some breathing space. So in the area of 10, if two groups were auto-confirmed into it you can ensure that only 9 people will be auto-confirmed. Eg. A group of 6 and 3. To do this, the multi-group buffer for this table would be 1.
