How do I make bookings for others?

Last revision October 12 by Community

In order to make a reservation on behalf of someone else, you must register your OpenTable account as an Administrative Professional. Administrative Professional accounts will allow PAs, executive assistants, travel planners, recruiters, and other administrative professionals to easily make reservations on behalf of others.



New Accounts: Register as an Administrative Professional


Follow these steps to create a new OpenTable account, and register yourself as an Administrative Professional:


  1. Visit and click "Sign Up" from the upper right hand corner
  2. Fill out the new account form, and check the "I am an administrative professional..." box that is located underneath the form
