What about MRBS
newbie here. We are currently using an antiquated pen-and-paper system, and I just want to ask and see if anyone would recommend an online room booking system for our school, that is:
b) easy to use
e) can export statistics (room booking amount, etc.)
I have seen that wholeschool.tv do room booking software, and I am also interested in:
Room Booking System - Online Resource Scheduling Software for Schools
and maybe BOB from:
» Free online multi week timetable room booking system for schools & colleges
has anyone tried these, and are they any good?
All the best,
What about MRBS
I haven't turned back since using MRBS. I must admit, I didn't like the default theme as it was lacking some features, however I have heavily modified it over the years to suit our needs (only thing I haven't done yet is a mod for 2-week timetables).
I still hack bits now and then though, and there are areas of our's unfinished, but the main thing is it has alot of potential. Even then, the vanilla version still does the basic job (and will still be far improved than the paper system you have now).
Screenshots below are actually of MRBS, just with ALOT of modification! I added a completely new module so that you get an account section when you login, and an area where you can see all your bookings (overview).

Also an australian company has written a plugin for MRBS that allows it to be used via iCal. Has anyone found the code or used this or even managed to do this themselves? If so how?
we use the roombookingsystem.co.uk here and think it is first class, really easy to use and the staff love it
However, I have also modified original MRBS php files (like to prevent viewing data so many weeks in advance, and to assign staff to their department, and for that department to have access to a particular week first). In this instances, the code would be deleted during an upgrade, so we still use the older version of MRBS!
MRBS here and the Bill Cosby Jumper Club find it easy to use.
Not sure about it showing next 50 though, it seems to show them all. By all means, if someone can improve upon what I have done and release their own modified version then i'm sure that would be appreciated too!
The one I have uploaded works on mrbs 1.4.1, however if you want it on mrbs 1.2, then you need to swap the commented lines over on 2 parts (you can see in the source where I have put a line for 1.2 and 1.4). Not tested fully on 1.4 (as we use 1.2) however on my test install it seems to work ok.
Cool. We could go into building our own Edugeek Booking system based on MRBS
