Setup Desk Booking with Qbic Panel-PC Device

This article provides the instructions to configure and register Qbic Panel-PC devices with the Appspace App for devices, ideal for hot-desking or resource reservations, allowing for employees to quickly scan the QR code displayed on the device and make their reservations through the Appspace Employee App.

The Qbic Panel-PC device utilizes the Appspace App for Devices (PWA), and currently only supports the Desk Booking card displayed on a playlist channel.

Prerequisites

  • Qbic Panel-PC TD-0350 device. The device must meet the manufacturer’s minimum hardware and technical specifications. Please refer to Supported Devices & Operating Systems.
  • Appspace App for Devices 2.34 and later.
  • Appspace Desk Booking card assigned to a playlist channel.
  • An active Appspace user account.
  • An Appspace Platform user license.
  • Account Owner or Location Admin role to register device.
  • An active Internet connection.
  • It is recommended that the device clock is set to automatically retrieve time from a Network Time Protocol (NTP) server, with the correct time zone, in order for it to sync correctly with the Appspace server.
    Note
    • Appspace cloud servers by default retrieve time from an NTP server. If an Appspace on-premises server is used, ensure the server time is automatically retrieved by an NTP server.
    • Appspace has updated the timezone configurations, which now include timezones other than GMT. This enables users with daylight savings to adjust the time accordingly.

      For more information, please refer to the Appspace 7.1-ac.8 Release Notes

  • Please ensure your network is configured to allow Appspace Approved URLs and the relevant network ports.
    On your proxy server, ensure our approved URLs are listed in the ‘How to set up networks with SSL content filters’ section in the following article: https://support.google.com/chrome/a/answer/3504942#sslinspection.
