Manage Booking for Shared Spaces and Resources
A company selling specialized dentistry equipment has several meeting rooms available. The different rooms can accommodate a different number of people. Sales staff can use these rooms as needed for client meetings, either in-person or to set up a video conference. In addition, the company has several shared resources to be used by the sales team and other staff members.
Members of the sales team need to book the spaces and resources they need individually, without double-booking or needing to wait for approval.
Assign one color-coded sub-calendar per space or resource. Disallow double-booking.
Block out unavailable times. Provide add-only calendar access for self-booking needs.
Prevent double-booking with color-coded sub-calendars.
Each shared space or resource has its own color-coded sub-calendar. Set each sub-calendars to disallow double-booking. No more scheduling conflicts.
Organize sub-calendars in folders: one for spaces, one for resources. Anyone can turn an entire folder on or off from view when using the calendar to see only what is relevant.
Delegate bookings to your team without sacrificing security.
No more micromanaging. Equip your team to manage their own bookings and keep your calendar secure at the same time.
Here’s how: Maya, a member of the sales team, is added as an account-based user. She has modify-from-same calendar access, which means she can add and modify her own bookings, but she cannot modify or delete a booking added by any other team member.
Filter all calendar events to find the relevant space or resource quickly.
Use built-in filters to search the calendar by sub-calendar, custom event field, or keyword.
Maya can filter the calendar for the room she wants to reserve to quickly see open times. Or she can filter the calendar by her own name in the “Who is booking?” custom event field to review her booked rooms and resources.
Compare schedules at a glance with Timeline calendar view.
See each shared sub-calendar in its own row. Easily review booked times for resources and shared spaces.
View a day, a week, or multiple days or weeks at a time. Set the zoom level to see the details or the big picture. The Timeline view makes it easy to plan time for set up or clean up of shared spaces and resources.
We are grateful for all the feedback we receive from around the world every day.
