Overview of Hourly Desk Booking

Maximize flexibility at your office with Hourly Desk Booking. This feature allows users to make a desk reservation for exactly the hours they need them and free up the space for others when they don’t. Freed-up desks can then be booked by other employees.

Using this feature, admins can get a better understanding of their desk utilization and employees can better represent their in-office status to their teams.

How to Configure Hourly Desk Booking

This feature is available to all Desk Booking users, regardless of subscription level.

Super Admins & Desk Booking Admins can manage hourly desk booking settings by going to Settings > Desk Booking. Admins have access to the following settings:

  1. Enable Hourly Desk Booking: toggle the hourly desk booking feature on or off

  2. Require Check In: indicate if your team requires a check in for hourly and/or all day desk reservations and when those desks are automatically released

Limitations of Hourly Desk Booking

It is important to note that you can only have one active hourly reservation per day. Multiple reservations can be made only if previous reservations are completed, i.e. it has been checked out of or canceled.

Recurring hourly reservations are not supported at this time.
