Set up All Day Desk Reservations and Check-in Times

Level: System Administrator / Serraview Implementation Team

You can configure the check-in times for employees to check into their reserved desks. This can be either set up as an all-day desk reservation or a time block reservation.

All-Day Desk Reservations Example

In this example, the Engage users will make a desk reservation where:

  • Check-in is from 2 PM to Midnight
  • Desk Check-in Open Window = 600 minutes
  • Check-in Window Duration =  540 minutes

Notes

  • When your employee makes a desk reservation on the same day within the check-in window, you will be checked-in automatically.
  • When you employee cancels their desk reservation then Engage will let other employees reserve the desk.

This can be set globally for all your buildings or set for each building.

Global Settings


The default setting for all your buildings is global and all you need to do is complete the Engage Configuration below.

For example the building's field is set to Global.
