Explanation: How to use the information page
The information page can show different parts depending on the item, building or company. The information page will always consist out of one or more of the following items:
- Photo and name of the room (always available)
- Description of the room (always available)
- Availability of the room (available with the 'booking' solution)
- Comfort controls (Available with the 'personal' solution)
- People working there (can be available for everyone)
- Booking overview (Available with the 'booking' solution)
- Routing (always available)
- Similar areas (always available)
Photo and name of the room:
At the top you'll find a photo of that room with the name of the room. If a lot of rooms look similar the same photo can be used for different rooms.
The description part gives an overview of the room and it's facilities. The contents are customized in corporation with your company during the implementation process. In the description field you can find a textual instruction / description and available facilities of the room ( e.g. projector, flipboard, presentation screen and the amount of seats present in the room).
In the availability section, you can find the booking- and/ or the occupation status of the room. The booking status is distracted from the booking system and the occupancy state from a sensor in the room. Both are optional. You can find three kinds of statuses: available (green), no show (orange) and not available (red).
Note: The availability is depended on the presence of a room sensor and a booking integration.
A optional part of the information page is the comfort section. Here lights, temperature and blinds can be controlled from Mapiq. This will only be possible when your're in that room. For more information check the 'control lights and temperature section'
Working here (optional):
Mapiq can show who is inside of a meeting room, if people have been checked into that room (manually in Mapiq web or automatically with Mapiq Now).. Because it is not mandatory to check in it is possible that the room is occupied, but you don't see people whom are checked in.
In the booking section you can find all booking related information of the room. At the top you can easily switch between dates using the arrow or the green schedule button. In the timeline you'll find; the timeline ( lightest of grey), the bookings in the past (grey) and the bookings in the future (dark grey). The red line represents the current time. By clicking the green 'Start booking' button you can immediately book the room.
NOTE: if the button is not present, it is not a bookable room.
In this area you can also click the grey button 'reservations list' underneath the green 'start booking' button to see the whole schedule for the day.
The routing section gives you the route to the room or place. If you are checked in (manually or automatically) the route will start from there. Otherwise it will start from the nearest access point (stairs or elevators), which are also adjustable to your preferences (e.g. for disabled) with the blue bottom. When the route is shown on the 3D map, you can also see the textual description of the route on the floor. You can also see the route from the entrance.
In the similar area's tab you can find similar rooms. For example when the room is occupied, you can quickly find a similar place. Click on the grey button of the room to access that room page.
