Basic Setup - Buildings and Structure

Create Structure

After choosing the "Default Room Settings" it is time to create structure, countries, cities, buildings and floors where the imported rooms, already created in your booking system, will be assigned. These structures can later be revisited and edited after the setup in Settings>,Buildings &, Structures.


You have to add some structure and at least one resource room to be able to proceed in your basic setup.  


Settings Description
Add Structure

Add a description of each structure level (i.e. country name, city name, building name, floor name) and click ‘Add’ to create a structure.

If it’s only one country, you can create many cities, buildings and floors and they will all be sorted in the correct way

You can delete or rename it. Hover over the item you want to change or delete and click on the three dots in the right. 


Please note that the interface in the "Import room"-section is a bit different depending on which booking system you are connecting.

  2. "Schedule": Enable this if you want an import to be done every day at 2.00 AM. An .csv import has to been imported already in the previous step. 
Imported Rooms In the list of imported rooms you are able to select/deselect all rooms  or individual rooms.
To assign room(s) to a floor, select the room(s) and drag & drop to their respective floor.
