AskCody Meeting Room Displays (Today+) display daily activities and enable employees to schedule events directly on the digital door sign. This makes it easier than ever to optimize your meeting room utilization. Today+ is connected directly to the room calendar through the connected service account and prevents meeting interruptions and booking misunderstandings.
A Today+ is made up of two parts:
- The Today+ configuration allows you to control what information should be displayed and what interactive functions should be enabled.
- The Today+ is the actual unique URL that will display the room schedule information and interactive functions. When setting up the Today+ you select which calendar should be displayed and what configuration the specific Today+ should be using.
A Today+ can only have one configuration at the time, but a Today+ configuration can be used on multiple Today+ at once. This enables you to change the displayed content on multiple Today+ without having to edit each individual Today+. This also means that if no theme is selected on the Today+ it will use the theme set on the Today+ configuration instead. However, if a theme is selected on the Today+ it will use that theme instead of the theme set in the Today+ configuration.

Here you can keep track of all your Today+ and display one of them in your browser by simply clicking the Key link to the right of the name of the desired Today+. Keep in mind that Today+ is designed to be displayed in 10' tablet format such as 1280x800 or 2048x1536, so it might look disproportionate when displayed in your browser window.
