Reservations are currently modeled after salons and similar locations whose offerings revolve around providing services. Reservations through Revel are used to create services, associate employees (aka Service Providers in Reservations) with the particular services, assign commissions to employees and their services, and schedule appointments with customers for particular services. Table Service-based Reservations will be available in future Revel builds.
