Room Reservations is a module for making and managing room reservations.
It was initially developed by Randall Library at the University of North Carolina Wilmington to allow students, faculty, and staff to reserve group study rooms within the library. However, it can be employed by any organization to provide an easy to use room reservation system.
The application displays a calendar of rooms that can be reserved. Users make a reservation by selecting an open time slot for a particular room and then filling out a reservation form. Once a reservation is made, confirmation messages and reminders can be sent to multiple parties by email and SMS text message. Users are also able to view, update, and cancel existing reservations.
The module can be configured in a number of ways to meet different needs. Some of the elements that can be customized include:
- application name
- room categories
- hours by day when reservations can be made
- reservation policies
- reservation instructions
- SMS wireless network information
- reservation confirmation messages
- reservation reminder messages
- time of day when reminders are sent
