Description

The “Sharepoint Calendar Room and Resource Booking for WordPress” plugin is used to reserve rooms or resources within an organization.

If you have a conference room, company car, or equipment that everyone needs to use, then you need to come up with a way to make those resources reservable to everyone. The best way to do that is to create a room or equipment mailbox in Microsoft 365 for each resource. You might create one for your first floor conference room, media equipment, or a moving truck.

The below shortcode configuration will show a specific calendar in a grid view for a specific date range.

{o365_sp_booking siteid="" listid="" id="" cf7id="3364" template="room_booking_tpl.php" endtime="19.30" starttime="09.00" mthviewdaylimit="5" businessdays="1,2,3,4,5" colorcolumn="" columns="fAllDayEvent,Title,ID,EndDate,EventDate,localtion,Room" hidebasedcol="" hidebasedval=""}

Features

  • Book/Reserve specific rooms and resources within an organisation.
  • Booking requests can go through an approval process before confirming.
  • Specify the days that are available for booking during a week.
  • Mark unavailable and previously booked time slots with the text “busy” for privacy.
  • Block double booking – Users can’t book a date / time if already booked.
  • Define business work hours so bookings/reservations can’t be made outside of that time frame.
  • Ability to differentiate between rooms and resources by defining their own specific colors.
  • Custom filter search – adjust filter drop downs to quickly check resource availability.
  • Simple and customize booking form – just pick the resource, start and end then save!
  • Email alerts – reservation confirmation and reminder at reservation time.

Some reasons to use this solution:

  • Great for adding organizational events to your website that you want to be hosted from your SharePoint portal that could also be related to other business processes in office 365.
  • Easily add custom columns to SharePoint calendar lists that are not easily done for outlook calendar events.
  • Calendar event items can be created and modified from the SharePoint mobile application provided by Microsoft.
  • Calendar event items can be configured to show publicly or can be private, requiring the user to login to view the events.

Requirements:

  • Office 365 with SharePoint online service.
  • Office 365 User with Global Administrator role.
  • WordPress Website with Administrator access.
  • Some CSS tweaking.
