Introducing the Schedule Board card, which is designed for viewing the schedule of multiple meeting spaces, on larger displays placed in common areas with many nearby meeting spaces. The card retrieves and displays multiple meeting schedules from multiple rooms and integrates them in one single display for an integrated viewing and booking experience.
Interactivity for the Schedule Board card is currently supported on iOS, Android, Chrome OS, and LG based devices only.
Similar to the Room Schedule card (which is ideal for single room booking), the Schedule Board card is compatible with the following calendar data providers:
- Google G Suite
- Microsoft Office 365
- Application authentication, ideal for viewing multiple rooms in organizations that do not allow user based logins, an account with administrator privileges can book all rooms in the organization.
- User authentication, similar to the Room Schedule card authentication, an account with this permission can only book rooms that have been assigned to the user.
The Schedule Board card also includes the following features:
Users have the option to book instantly or in advance, up to a maximum of four 30-minute blocks (2 hours), depending on the start of the next scheduled meeting. Similar to the Room Schedule card, users are able to check-in, extend, and end meetings, directly from the Schedule Board card.
The check-in feature is enabled by default, and allows users to check-in a meeting 10 minutes before a meeting starts. The meeting auto-cancels if the meeting is not checked-in 10 minutes after the meeting starts.
At a glance, users are able to view multiple meeting rooms, and the respective meetings in a single view, allowing users to quickly identify which rooms are available or occupied.
There are two viewing options available, each with its own uniqueness:
- Current meeting view
This simplified view of room schedules, displays only the current and next upcoming meeting, for multiple rooms. Users can also filter this view by status: Available, Check-in, Occupied.
- Room schedule view
This view displays a comprehensive schedule of current and all upcoming meetings for multiple rooms enabling the user to make a booking instantly, or in advance up-to three days. Users can also filter this view by status: Available, Check-in, Occupied.
The Schedule Board card offers a variety of customization options and settings such as the default view of the card, display options, custom logo and logo positioning, custom header, interactivity, background color or image, meeting status color, and many more.
