Admins will set up the new Seats module add-on in your existing LibCal reservation system. Your users will be able to view available Seats, reserve one, and use check-in/check out from their smartphone. In this session, admins will configure availability slots, view and manage bookings, see real-time building capacity, and quickly remove seats if needed.

We'll cover:

  • Setting up the Seats Module
  • Creating bookable individual Seats 
  • Organizing Seats by Spaces and Zones.
  • Determining how far in advance users can book Seats and setting up padding (time) between bookings for cleaning and sanitizing. 
  • Viewing Realtime Capacity Reporting by running reports to view the capacity of Seats within Spaces and Zones. 
  • Setting up Contactless Check-in/out by printing QR Codes next to each Seat or Space.
  • Setting up a mobile-friendly webpage for check-in/out. This optional feature helps you with contact tracing efforts.
Registration has closed.
