Using SBB Mobil app to reserve seats

Hi I purchased a ticket via SBB mobile app for tomorrow leaving St Moritz at 13:48 to Tirano. It says that this trip has PR (paranomic Car) and that reservation is compulsory, I purchased a first class ticket. However i do not kno how to reserve a seat... it is not giving me the option. I clicked “ more ticket and reservation option” but still doesn’t let me.

According to SBB site, one is supposed to be able to reserve seats on the mobile app- that’s why I used this app.

Would the ticket office at the St Moritz be able to help me reserve seats?

Check https:/… - RHB is the company operating Bernina Express

For Saturday (March 23, 2019) still plenty of free places for the 13:48 train in 1st and in 2nd class - for Sunday same train sold out (both 1st and 2nd class)

You only need the reservations for the panoramic cars. There are usually a few unreserved cars in the front. If places are still available (quite probably this time of year) you can also get them on the spot from the conductor.
