From the left Menu go to Config>Administration>Rooms.


Click the New button to Create a new Room


If editing a Room that is already present in your MIS then click the blue find icon to show the list of Rooms already created. Click on the required Room and click Done.

Select a Room

This will open the Room Details page. This page will be blank for a new Room.

Room Details

Note: The Room Name field has a limit of 10 characters.

Only fields with * are required but you can always add additional data later if needed.

Once you are happy with your Room Details, press Create and this will add the Room to your system.

Depending on the Start Date that you assigned, the Room can now be used for Timetabling/Cover and will appear when you next go to Config>Administration>Rooms and Search for it.

Note: It is not possible to delete a Room due to the historic data stored against the Room.

If you give the Room an End Date, it will no longer appear as a choice when selecting a Room for Timetables/Cover etc.
