Booked includes a lot of features that you may not know about. In this article we’ll talk about the tablet display, which is perfect for showing reservation information next to a resource. A good example is a tablet mounted outside a conference room, but this can be used for any type of resources.

Here’s an example of what this looks like.

You can quickly see if a resource is currently in use, what the schedule for the day looks like, and create ad-hoc reservations. If there is a reservation that is pending check in, a button to check in will be shown instead.

Great, so how can this be enabled, you ask? It’s simple.

On your tablet, open a browser and navigate to https://your-booked-url/resource-display.php. You’ll be greeted with a sign in screen. Sign in with an administrator account, then pick the resource you want to show.

That’s it. You can leave this up and it will continuously refresh with the latest information.
