Manage Workspace, Desk, or Room Reservations – Concierge

Important
This is an Appspace Limited Release feature. Contact your Appspace Customer Success Manager to be a part of the Limited Release program and enable this feature.

This article provides instructions for employees with Concierge permissions to manage workspace reservations, such as office spaces, meeting rooms, and hot desks via the Concierge dashboard on the Appspace Employee App portal.

The dashboard will provide the Concierge user with a calendar view of reservations within the location that they have visibility over, with the following criteria:

  • View current, historic, and future reservations in a calendar view.
  • View the calendar in a daily, weekly, or monthly format.
  • The calendar view will display reservations based on selected workspace resources from locations that are specific or assigned to the concierge.
  • Reservation details can be expanded to display additional information pertaining to the reservations, such as organizer, attendees, duration, meeting name, and other reservation details that are not displayed on the calendar view.
  • Reservations can be filtered according to workspace resource type, and status.
  • Reservations can be exported to a .xlsx format, containing all reservation records made.
  • The concierge has limited editing capabilities but is able to delete a reservation.

Note
The Calendar view will NOT allow the Concierge user to select Users and view their personal Calendars, but will have the ability to see the users associated with a reservation at one of the resource for which the Concierge user has visibility

Prerequisites

Important
The Employee App is only available on Appspace public/private cloud 8.0 and later. It is not supported on 8.0 on-prem.

Employee App Portal

The Concierge dashboard provides employees assigned with Concierge permissions a calendar view of all reservations under their purview, in addition to the existing method of viewing historic and future reservations in a list view. Employees with concierge permissions are also able to view and manage the reservations of workspaces in locations they have been assigned to.

The Concierge dashboard now has a Save button allowing the Concierge user to save the selected filtered calendar view, which can then be accessed by the Concierge user upon subsequent login/access to the dashboard.

Configure Concierge Dashboard View

Follow the instructions below to configure your Concierge dashboard in the Employee App portal:

  1. Log in to your Employee App Portal with your Appspace Premium User credentials that have been assigned with Concierge permissions.
  2. Click More from the menu, and click Concierge.

  3. The calendar will display the current date by default. If you wish to view or manage reservations on another date, click the desired date on the Mini Calendar.

  4. Proceed to enter the name of the workspaces you wish to view on the calendar in the Workspaces input box.
  5. Alternatively, you may select the Location of the workspaces you wish displayed from the drop-down menu, which will then populate the calendar with the six latest workspaces available.
    • If the workspace you wish to view was not added automatically, you may manually add the name of the workspace in the Workspaces input box.
    • If you wish to remove a workspace from being displayed, click the “X” beside the workspace name tag from the Workspaces input box to remove it.
  6. Once done, the concierge calendar will display all reservations within its workspace column according to the time and date on the calendar.
  7. Optionally, the following filters may be used to further narrow down the reservations you wish to display:
    • Resource Type – Display reservations based on the workspace type.
    • Status – Display reservations based on the reservation status.
  8. You may click the Save button to save the Concierge dashboard with the current calendar view and its selected filters. When you log in to the Employee App again, you will be presented with the same filtered calendar view.
