The “killer” app I am looking for is to have a defined max occupancy for a given room. Each lab space we work in will now have a “density budget,” meaning that e.g. up to four people are allowed to work in that room at a given time. People are scheduling their own time to do their work. Our current solution of morning and night shifts on a google sheet is not nearly flexible enough for the unpredictable nature of biology research. (The cells that we grow in culture don’t always follow the schedules we had planned.) So, I’d like a given room to have overlapping events = 4 or something like that. Up to four people can work there, and if a fifth person tries to schedule the room they get an error.
