How to Use the Event Book

Overview

The Event Book is a graphical depiction of the activity in your rooms. It's used to see if a room is booked on a particular date and time, and also to locate events. One of the benefits of using the Event Book is that it allows you to see the temporal relationships between bookings.

  • Bookings in combination rooms are represented in all affected room components. In the example below, the booking is in Ballroom (East). However, the booking is also shown (faded out) in Ballroom (All), as that room cannot be reserved for this date and time since one of its component rooms is reserved.
