AskCody Today+ is a digital system that displays room activities from a tablet.
For more information about the concept of the Today+, please visit our website.
This is a detailed instruction article, on how to use Today+. There are two kinds of meetings that can be booked and displayed on Today+: scheduled meetings and ad-hoc meetings.
Today+ is designed to instantly give an overview of meeting room availability, therefore, by default the Today+ displays a green background when the room is available, and a red background when it is occupied.
The color choice indicator is customizable. Thus it might differ according to your organization's preferences. In this example, the default colors are presented.
When you book a meeting room that has a dedicated AskCody Today+ outside of the meeting room, your meeting subject, its agenda, organizers and attendees names, alongside the beginning of the meeting and its duration, will be shown. Therefore, it is important to mark your meeting as private in case you do not wish to display the information of your meeting. Once the meeting has been booked, it will be displayed on the Today+ as shown below.
Remember to confirm your meeting when you get to the meeting room. Otherwise, the meeting will be automatically removed and the room will become available. The meeting can be confirmed 15 minutes prior to the beginning of the meeting, and 15 minutes after the scheduled beginning.
You are also able to cancel your meeting 15 minutes prior and 15 minutes after the scheduled start time from the Today+.
At any moment during your meeting, you can extend or end your meeting. You can extend your meeting as long as it does not interfere with other scheduled meetings.
When ending a meeting, make sure to confirm that you want to end your meeting, otherwise it will not register the action. It is important to release the room if it is not being used, in order to allow your colleagues to use the facilities. The Today+ updates the info displayed once every minute.
Ad-hoc meetings and booking directly from the screen
You are able to book the room directly from the screen. The ad-hoc can only be scheduled to commence within the next 24 hours.
You are required to type in a meeting subject, as well as date and time of the meeting. A default meeting duration is proposed and will book the room from the moment you press book.
If you wish to book a room for later, press the watch icon and you will be presented with a calendar. From there on, you can book the meeting room at any given moment, as long as it does not interfere with other meetings.
You are able to see the room's schedule on the left side of the screen. There you can see what meetings are scheduled and the subject of the meetings. You can select any meeting on the list to see more details.
