Humly Reservations - Standalone

Humly Reservations in Standalone mode makes it possible for your organization to book rooms without a booking system backend (i.e. Exchange, Google G Suite, Office365 or Domino) either using the Humly Reservations web application or booking directly from the Humly Room Display.

Before continuing follow the steps provided in Humly Control Panel Installation for Windows or Linux.
Also make sure that you have set up a SMTP service on your organization’s email server. Please consult your email service provider or system administrator on how to do this for your organization.
