Distant Reservations

From Door Tablet V8 you can create ad-hoc reservations in distant meeting spaces. Once such a reservation is confirmed you will need to go to that meeting space within the check-in grace time and ensure you check-in.

To create a distant reservation touch on "Nearby" to see other meeting spaces in your area. Door Tablet will offer a menu of available meeting spaces. Before you can use this feature you must turn it on in the System Profile:
