Now, let’s delve into the world of Odoo 17.1 POS table merging and explore its impact on restaurant operations.


Odoo 17.1 POS introduces a seamless table merging functionality specifically designed for restaurants. This feature empowers your wait staff to effortlessly combine adjacent tables, catering to larger groups or accommodating requests for additional seating.

Here’s how it elevates restaurant table management :

1) Increased Table Turnover : With table merging, you can accommodate larger parties without waiting for a single, spacious table to become available. This translates to quicker table turnover, allowing you to serve more customers and maximize revenue during peak hours.

2) Enhanced Customer Satisfaction : Waiting for a table can be frustrating for customers. Odoo 17.1 POS table merging eliminates this pain point by allowing you to seat them promptly, even if your larger tables are occupied. This fosters a positive dining experience and encourages repeat visits.

3) Improved Staff Efficiency : The intuitive table merging feature streamlines the seating process for your wait staff. No more scrambling to rearrange tables manually. This frees up valuable time for them to focus on taking orders, providing exceptional service and creating a welcoming atmosphere for your guests.


Using the Odoo 17.1 POS table merge feature is as simple as a few clicks :

  1. Access the Floor Plan : Within the Odoo 17.1 POS interface, navigate to the “Floor Plan” section. This displays a visual representation of your restaurant’s layout, with each table clearly marked.
  2. Select Tables for Merging : Identify the tables you want to combine. Click and hold on the first table, then drag it towards the adjacent table you wish to merge it with. A visual cue will indicate a successful selection.
  3. Confirm the Merge : A confirmation pop-up will appear. Simply click “Merge” to finalize the process. The selected tables will now be displayed as a single, larger table within the floor plan.

Note : Odoo 17.1 POS also allows you to unmerge tables if needed.  Follow the same steps, selecting the merged table and dragging it away from the other tables.


Odoo 17.1 POS offers a robust suite of features specifically designed to streamline restaurant operations.  In addition to table merging, here are some key functionalities that enhance your restaurant’s efficiency :

  1. Menu Management : Create and manage your menu with ease, including descriptions, pricing, images and modifiers.
  2. Order Management : Take orders efficiently, manage split bills and track order status in real-time.
  3. Kitchen Display System : Improve communication between your wait staff and kitchen with a digital display system that displays orders as they are placed.
  4. Inventory Management : Maintain optimal stock levels and avoid stock-outs with integrated inventory management tools.
  5. Customer Relationship Management (CRM) : Build customer loyalty programs, track customer preferences and personalize their dining experience.
