    Classroom booking software

    I am looking fo some software (preferably free) to run across the network to alloww online booking of ICT rooms. Anyone have experience of this. We have an Apache server already with database set up that runs a Support ticket set up for reporting faults online. :?:

    Re: Classroom booking software

    I have an asp solution which runs from a access database if you like?

    theres loads out there for free MRBS is quite good, i needed a two week timetable and this wasnt really what i was looking for but a lot of schools use it.

    MRBS works with a two week timetable if you bother to read and edit the configuration file.

    Re: Classroom booking software

    I only wanted to display rooms that were available. I have simple drop down boxes which let you select the "week commmencing" then the day and period and it shows you which rooms are aviable. Click and book, only that user can delete the booking.

    I didnt like MRBS layout and look, much prefer my own.

    @Geoff: Well I had to read and edit the file to get it to work anyway so if you've acheived this feet maybe you'd like to provide some more information rather than the uneeded comment you allready made.

    I'm also working on a custom-made system that I can integrate into the Intranet. Not finished yet, but not far off either 8)

    Nope we don't have sharepoint (yet). It's a custom-made ASP script with MDB databases.

    edit the "$vocab["rep_type_6"] " option in lang.en to read:

    Code:
    $vocab["rep_type_6"]         = "Bi-Weekly";
    IIRC newer versions of MRBS have this fix included.

    Re: Classroom booking software

    Well at the moment I set all mine to repeat every 2 weeks anyway.
    But what it doesn't do is enable me to input a whole terms bookings and then take into account that when there is a holiday we don't count that as a week.

    So we go week1,week2,holiday,week1,week2
    and not
    week1,week2,holiday-week1,week2,week1

    I would love a solution that enables me to select the holidays and if any bookings are set for those on a repeat to shift it forward a week.

    Doubt that is ever going to happen so this year I will do half term 1 then half term 2 as 2 seperate lots just means I have to input the stuff twice.
