Yeat is a mobile app, built by restaurant owners for restaurant owners & foodies. In Yeat, you find more than 130 highly recommended restaurants and more than 20.000 foodies. Yeat only shows restaurants that are listed in the Michelin guide, in Gault&Millau, and on the OAD list. So you can only use this integration if your restaurant is featured on one of these publications.

What does the integration do?

Yeat helps you notify all foodies that follow your restaurant on Yeat via an instant notification of a last-minute opportunity in your restaurant. The integration between Formitable and Yeat will make it easy to fill this spot by adding reservation tickets that are bookable through Yeat, to your overview. So when there is a last-minute cancellation, a no-show, or there is no match with the waiting list, you can place a table online via Yeat to fill those empty spots.


How does the integration work?

Thanks to the integration, you will be able to place a last-minute table online by adding a dedicated 'Yeat' ticket to your ‘reservation overview’. By doing so, the last-minute table will be visible in Yeat.

When your last-minute table is booked via Yeat, the name, phone number, and email address will appear in your reservations overview in Formitable. The guest will receive both the confirmation email of Yeat, and the official confirmation email of your restaurant.


Before you start

In order to use the integration, you'll need a dedicated Yeat Ticket in Formitable. To create a Ticket, follow the steps below:

  1. Go to Products > Tickets.

  2. Add a new Ticket and simply give it the title 'YEAT'.

  3. Set a Ticket color you don't use yet (at the top right), to avoid any confusion on the floor.

  4. Save your Ticket.

  5. Once you've saved it, open it again to collect the Ticket ID at the bottom left (it will only be visible when it's saved at least once).


How to activate the integration

  2. Once the app is installed, open the app and enter the Ticket ID you saved earlier when creating your Yeat Ticket.
