How to use the panel

In the room booking application, you can swiftly check both present and upcoming meetings. To make a reservation, you have two options: an immediate booking or scheduling for a later time using your personal account.

Opting for the "Book Now" button instantly secures a meeting slot, creating an anonymous booking from the current time. Alternatively, utilise the room availability slider to select a suitable time for a future meeting.

The panel's sidebar provides additional valuable details:

  • Current occupancy

  • Current temperature

  • Current humidity levels

  • Current CO2 levels

  • Current air quality (TVOC/VOC)

During an ongoing meeting, a countdown timer will display, indicating the remaining duration of the meeting.

Meeting room check in

Navigate to company settings or building settings (depending on your administrative role).

Under booking policies, locate the meeting room check in option and toggle it on or off according to your preference.

If meeting room check in is turned on, a new field will appear to configure the check in window prior to the meeting starting.

When meeting room check in is turned on, a new configuration option will be available to specify how long before a meeting starts that someone can check in.

This configuration is represented by a free-text field where you can input the desired number of minutes.

The default check-in time is set to 5 minutes, with a maximum allowable duration of 60 minutes. Additionally, users have the flexibility to check in even after the meeting has commenced.

The check-in status is now included in the booking report under a dedicated check-in column.

This column provides a quick overview of which bookings have been checked in, offering valuable insights into meeting room utilisation.

Extend meetings

You can extend your meeting directly from the room booking panel.

Users will see an extend button next to the current meeting on the booking panel if it is possible to extend that specific meeting.

The extension functionality is configured to align with the book now duration setting in company/building settings. This setting determines the increment slot length for meeting extensions.
