- Availability view is user configurable to show from one to 31 days of availability information for all resources in a group starting at any specified date. Unlike other systems which show when a resource is already reserved and thus force users to figure out when the resource is actually available, our system gives them what they really need. They don't care so much to see that a resource is not available, they want to quickly see when a resource is available. Availability is displayed symbolically and with color so it is easy to use regardless of how many reservations exist.
- Reservation view shows availability and existing reservations for a specific resource on the day of interest and allows reserving, canceling, or wait-listing multiple hours or full days.
- Waiting lists. If the resource you want is already reserved you can put yourself on a waiting list and, depending on the configuration, automatically be assigned the reservation when a cancellation occurs or be notified via email when it becomes available.
