Self-Service Room Allocator is specifically designed to allow staff and students to book rooms without the need for moderation using their mobile device.
Room Allocator’s intuitive interface allows the user to effortlessly search for rooms and times. Once found, the room can be booked directly by the requester and after the room is booked, an email is sent to the requester and the booking is confirmed. Room Allocator also allows for ‘last-minute’ bookings. Once booked, users can review their daily activities, including regular timetabled events and bookings.
Administrators manage Room Allocator by configuring self-booking preferences in Timetabler Administrator. Preferences include identifying rooms and time slots that Room Allocator can use. Users can be restricted to booking rooms within their department. Booking ‘fairness’ is managed by stipulating rolling quotas and weekly hour quotas. Limits can also be placed on how far in advance a booking can be made.
