LibCal's suggestion-based Spaces booking interface is here! This new UI enables patrons to find spaces by entering desired location, category, capacity, and date/time. The LibCal algorithm then finds availability for the exact - or similar - parameters and delivers the results for easy booking.
If you thought that was all, think again! A new dedicated tablet-display interface for wall-mounted tablets is almost ready, as is the integration with smartlocks so patrons can book, check-in, and have the door automatically unlocked. The tablets and smartlocks integration is coming in the next couple of months! We'll announce that new functionality here on our blog.
1. Completely Optional:
Admins can choose either the new suggestion-based UI or the existing availability grid - the new UI is optional.
Patrons have a great mobile booking experience, from start to finish.
3. Preview Before Committing:
See how the new UI works before turning it on for patrons.
4. Add Equipment to Space Booking:
Patrons can optionally add equipment to their spaces booking reservation.
