Why can't I delete/alter a booking?

In order to delete or alter a booking, you must be logged in as the same person that made the booking. Contact one of the booking room administrators or the person who initially made the booking to have it deleted or changed.

How do I create a booking?

Clicking on the desired time brings you into the booking screen. Fill in the details and click "Save".

Instead of clicking on the desired time you can select a time range and also a room or day range by dragging the cursor over a group of cells in the day or week views. When the mouse is released you will be taken to the booking screen and the time slots and the room or day range will have been filled in for you.

What is the difference between fifth and last?

When making a monthly recurring booking, the fifth weekday of every month is just that. If a month does not have a fifth weekday then no booking will be made for that month. If you choose the last weekday of the month then a booking will be made on the fourth weekday if there is no fifth weekday.

Fifth last works in a similar way, but counting backwards from the end of the month. Using first will give you the fourth last weekday of the month if there is no fifth last weekday.

How do I delete one instance of a recurring booking?

Select the day/room/time that you want to delete and select Delete Entry.

Top

How do I schedule rooms at different sites?

You don't. Presently the system cannot book two different rooms simultaneously. You must schedule each one separately. Make sure that the time you want is available at both sites before making a booking.

My booking failed to be created because of too many entries!

No booking can create more than 365 entries. There needs to be some limit on the number of bookings created.

What happens if multiple people schedule the same booking?

The short answer is: The first person to click on the Submit button wins. Behind the scenes, the system is using a proper multi-user, multi-threaded relational database than can handle many thousands of simultaneous users.

What is the difference between Internal and External?

By default, MRBS defines two booking types. Internal means that the booking will only be attended by employees. An External booking might also be attended by customers, vendors, investors, etc. Your site can define up to a total of 10 booking types, according to your needs. bookings are highlighted in the main calendar view with a color corresponding to their type, and a color key of all defined types is shown at the bottom of the main calendar view.
