How to Configure a Room Sign

Rooms signs, called Devices in Mazévo, are electronic displays mounted outside of a meeting or conference room that display the events for a given space on the current date.  

Setting up a new room sign in Mazévo

Typically, rooms signs installed in a facility are configured to look the same way. In Mazévo, each device (or sign) is associated with Room Sign Profile. Each profile has various settings used by the signs tied to it. The purpose of profiles is to make managing changes to signs easier by managing the changes thru a profile rather than each individual sign.

 

A user needs the Room Sign Administrator role (or Global Admin Role) to configure room signs.

Create a new profile if one doesn't exist:

1) Navigate to Settings > Room Sign Profiles

2) Press Add Room Sign Profile

3) Enter the following information:

  • Profile name 
  • Statuses  -  Select statuses of bookings to display on signs associated with this profile.
  • Background Image URL - Optional - URL to an image to be used as a background image
  • Background Image Font Color - Font Color is used for text that displays over the background image located on the left side of the panel.
  • Hide Contact - Check this box to hide the contact name from appearing on the device.
  • Hide Organization - Check this box to hide the Organization name from appearing on the device.
  • Number of days to display in the future - Enter how many additional days events should be displayed on the device. O days will limit the display to 'Today's' Events; one day would display today and tomorrow's events. The maximum number of additional days that can be displayed is 6.
  • Allow Book Room - Check this box to display a Book Room button. Pressing the button on the sign displays a QR code to scan the Mazévo mobile app to reserve the space.

 

Create a new device

1) Navigate to Settings > Room Sign Profiles > Manage Devices

2) Press Add Device

3) Enter the following information:

  • Room Sign Profile - select a profile from the dropdown list. 
  • Room - Select the room to be displayed on the device.
  • Device Id - Assign a unique number/id to the device.   If you only have a few devices to configure, a simple numbering scheme will work fine—something like Room1 or Room2.
  • Device Type - select the type of device from the dropdown list. The choices are Android/iOS tablet or Iadea Media Player.

4) Press Save.

 

Configure the device

From the device itself, perform the following steps:

1) Open the browser on the device and navigate to https://app.mymazevo.com/roomsign

2) Sign in to Mazévo with a User ID and Password. This user must have the room sign administrator role.

3) Enter the Device ID for this device and press Save.
