Create a Reservation

The Hummingbird app can be used to reserve workstations and meeting spaces in your building. Employees have access to a variety of options, from simple search to filtered floorplan and list views, allowing them to locate and reserve a space appropriate to their needs. 

After you successfully sign in to the Hummingbird app you can create a new reservation. 

  1. From the Hummingbird home screen, tap the Make a Reservation button.
  2. Available rooms display automatically on the Browse Rooms screen. If the Space module is licensed, rooms display in the floorplan view by default. Otherwise, rooms display in the list view. If you have access to both views, you can tap Floor or List at the bottom of the screen to display the corresponding view.
