When you have Insights enabled, each of your rooms will be given a room type. Choosing the right room type for your rooms is essential to gaining the most value out of your Insights.
This guide can help you to choose the right room types, based on the intended use of your rooms.
All of your rooms will be given the default room type. To ensure that you get useful data for your statistics, avoid keeping the default type and instead choose one of the types described below.
