This page will show you how to use the new booking calendar system to view existing room bookings and how to book a room or resource yourself. The new system is easier to view bookings and prevents double booking from occurring. The system itself can be easily accessed from the Intranet home page.
Accessing the booking system is easily done via the Intranet home page that appears when you login to a computer on the network. To access simply click the 'Booking Calendar' icon like shown below:
By default when you click the link from above you will be automatically presented with the booking calendar monthly view. All the bookings will appear on this screen like below:

By default the calendar will display all bookings by default on the calendar. If you just wanted to check if a certain resource is available on a given date e.g. KS4 Minibus, then you can select the room or resource from the calendar view by using the 'Change Calendar' drop down. Simply select the resource you would like to see the availability for:
If you need to book a resource or perhaps make a change or delete an existing booking, then you will need to login for this. To do this you can click the Log In button on the main calendar view:

On the title field, enter what the room/resource is booked for i.e. CIN Meeting or Admission. You do not need to specify your name here as it is automatically populated.
The description field is optional and you do not need to fill this in. Once you have created your booking click 'Create':
If the room/resource is not already booked then you will see the following confirmation:
If the room/resource is already booked out on the date and time you selected then you will see the following:

On the next screen you can change the times or date of the booking you have made. Simply change the time from below and then click 'Update':
If you simply wish to delete this booking, then press 'More' to the right of the screen then select Delete from the drop down menu:
