Manage rooms

In order to manage rooms:

  • Choose Manage > Rooms

Click Add to add a new room, or select the existing room to edit, remove or copy using the buttons on the right.

Each room has the following properties:

  • Name, e.g. "Computer lab", "Physics lab", "Bio lab", "Conference room", "Playground", "Meeting room", etc.
  • Short name
  • Color
  • Tags, e.g. "1st floor, lab"
  • Capacity
  • Building name

In order to group rooms, specify their room tag, e.g. "1st floor". That way, it will be easier to select them when adding or editing lessons. Multiple tags should be separated with comma.

Room capacity represents maximum student seat number and can be used for optimizing room usage for students.

Building name can be used to optimize daily moves between buildings.
