The block feature allows a manager to make a Workplace unavailable for booking. A blocked Workplace will appear as Unavailable (red) in the End User app and will not be available for booking while the block is active. It is possible to set a block for a certain period of time or for selected days.
There are two ways that a block can be created - a Basic block and a Custom block. Only Organization Managers or Location Managers with Control Center access permission can create Workplace Blocks.
A basic block is indicated by a “Yes” in the "Blocked" column of the Workplaces overview table.
Creating a Basic Block
A basic block can be created by clicking on the "Block" button next to the Workplace in the Workplaces overview. A basic block will immediately make the workspace unavailable. The Workplace will stay unavailable until it is unblocked by a manager.
Warning: This will irreversibly remove all existing reservations for that workspace!
A custom block is indicated as “Partial” in the "Blocked" column of the Workplaces overview table.
Creating a Custom Block
- To create a custom block, navigate to the Workplaces overview and click on the Workplace that you want to block. A Workplace Configuration window will pop up.
- Click on the “Block” button. A Custom Block window will pop up.
- Fill out the form and click “Save” to complete the Custom Block.
|The day when the Workplace Block comes in effect.
|The day on the end of which the Workplace Block ends.
This field is required - omitting the end date will generate an "Invalid request body" error when you try to save the block.
Select on which days you want the block to be active.
|You can select an existing user to assign the block to them. If a block is assigned to a user, it will appear as if that user has reserved the workplace.
Editing existing Workplace blocks
It is not possible to edit an already existing Workplace block. If you need to change the configuration of an existing block, remove it and create a new one.
Removing Workplace blocks
To remove a Workplace block, click the “Unblock” button in the Workplaces overview table next to the Workplace you wish to unblock.
