One of the challenges we see many people face not just in the Education space but in every sector, is having a system in place to allow end users to book resources. Be that a meeting room, ICT suite, mini buses, digital camera’s the list is endless. I have seen many different ways that organisation deal with this problem ranging from spread sheets on a shared drive to emailing booking requests to an administrator or simply a pieces of paper pinned on a noticeboard.
Well the good news is that SharePointEduTech have just released their new SharePoint Resource and Room Booking, this allows end users to book and maintain their own booked resources by simply going to a SharePoint page and clicking to book in a familiar calendar type interface.
SharePoint Resource and Room Manager is compatible with SharePoint 2010 and also 2013 be that Foundation, Standard and the enterprise edition. End users have full control over their own booking meaning that if they make a mistake they can delete their own bookings but not anyone else’s.
