Enforce which Employees can Make Bookings

Level: System Administrator / Serraview Implementation Team

When you want to control who is booking a desk then your System Administrator can configure Engage to enforce bookings for your employees. For example, this could be used when an employee is waiting for clearance on a security check before they are allowed to make bookings.

Update the Person's Details in the People Directory


First, you will need to update the People Directory for the particular person. When the Booking Allowed drop-down is set to No, then this will stop the employee from making bookings.

  1. Navigate to Resources > People.
  2. Search for the person and then select the person to edit.
  3. Scroll down to the setting.
  4. From the Bookings Allowed drop-down, select No.
  5. Click Update Person button to save.
