1Setting up Schedules:  When installing Booked Scheduler a default schedule will be created with out of the box settings. From the Schedules menu option you can view and edit attributes of the current schedules.

a. Schedules can be displayed starting on any day of the week and for any number of days. For a schedule to display starting on the current day, set the Starts On option to Today.

2. Schedule Administrators: A group of users may be set up with permission to manage resources. In order for a group to be set as the schedule administrator the group must first be granted the Schedule Administrator role. This is configured from the Groups admin tool. Once that role has been added, the group will be available in the Manage Schedules tool.

3. Setting up Resources: You can view and manage resources from the Resources menu option. Here you can change the attributes and usage configuration of a resource.

a. Resources in Booked Scheduler can be anything you want to make bookable, such as rooms or equipment. Every resource must be assigned to a schedule in order for it to be bookable. The resource will inherit whatever layout the schedule uses.

b. Setting a minimum reservation duration will prevent booking from lasting shorter than the set amount. The default is no minimum.

c. Setting a maximum reservation duration will prevent booking from lasting longer than the set amount. The default is no maximum.

d. Setting a resource to require approval will place all bookings for that resource into a pending state until approved. The default is no approval required.

e. Setting a resource to automatically grant permission to it will grant all new users permission to access the resource at registration time. The default is to automatically grant permissions.

4. Resource Administrators: A group of users may be set up with permission to manage resources. In order for a group to be set as the resource administrator the group must first be granted the Resource Administrator role. This is configured from the Groups admin tool. Once that role has been added, the group will be available in the Manage Resources tool.

5. Resource Images: You can set a resource image which will be displayed when viewing resource details from the reservation page. This requires php_gd2 to be installed and enabled in your php.ini file

6. Resource Statuses: Setting a resource to the Available status will allow users with permission to book the reservation. The Unavailable status will show the resource on the schedule but will not allow it to be booked by anyone other than administrators. The Hidden status will remove the resource from the schedule and prevent bookings from all users.

7. Resource Groups: Resource Groups are a simple way to organize and filter resources. When a booking is being created, the user will have an option to book all resources in a group. If resources in a group are assigned to different schedules then only the resources which share a schedule will be booked together

8. Resource Types: Resource types allow resources that share a common set of attributes to be managed together. Custom attributes for a resource type will apply to all resources of that type

9. Setting up Accessories: Accessories can be thought of as ancillary resources used during a reservation. Examples may be projectors or chairs in a conference room.

10. Setting up Quotas: Quotas restrict reservations from being booked based on a configurable limit. The quota system in Booked Scheduler is very flexible, allowing you to build limits based on reservation length and number reservations.

11. Setting up Announcements: Announcements are a very simple way to display notifications to Booked Scheduler users.

a. From the Announcements menu item you can view and manage the announcements that are displayed on users dashboards. An announcement can be configured with an optional start and end date. An optional priority level is also available, which sorts announcements from 1 to 10.

12. Setting up Groups: Groups in Booked Scheduler organize users, control resource access permissions and define roles within the application. Setting resource permissions for a group will grant access to all members of that group. Users can individually be granted additional resource permission.

 

More can be found in the help tab on the right-top side of administrator dashboard.
