    Resource Booking

    Hey I'm after a little help with something.

    I'm a technician at a school and we're looking to centralise our resources & ICT Rooms so they have to be booked via the Intranet.

    We want some FREE open source software that can allow staff to login and book rooms and resources as well as be able to integrate with Active Directory.

    We've looked at MRBS but can't get it to integrate with AD Structure.

    Any help would be appriciated.

    Thanks in Advice.

    James

    MRBS is really useful. We use IMAP authentication in order let staff log on. If you want some help PM me.

    Take a look here: http://classroombookings.com/

    A few threads are around regarding what he has done in regards to development and what peoples thoughts are on it. any questions i am sure he would be happy to answer for you.

    We use Google Apps and added each lab/venue as a bookable resource. Works well so far, if staff can access their Google Calendars, they can book a venue.

    I have been looking at these booking systems,

    Am i correct that the only one that Automatically logs in using LDAP is the Room Booking System ?
    "http://folders.devizes.wilts.sch.uk/download/bookingsystem3/Contact.asp"

    Do any others completely log you in without having to type any username/password?

    Thanks in advance
