    Computer room booking system

    Hi Guys,

    how do you all manage computer room bookings? we have 10 rooms around the school that when empty can be booked out to any department. At the minute we have a simple spreadsheet with the days and rooms available and we have two separate weeks of timetables week a and week b. We would like to introduce some sort of online system that can be viewed as read only and then a request can be sent to us via email. We do have home access but the initial login for it seems pretty slow, probably as it is authenticating with AD on another server.

    Cheers,

    Jonny

    Take a look at this FREE 28 day trial - Online Room booking, equipment booking, online marking, exam information, parent evening bookings & student lists It costs us £60 a year and does everything we need it to do. There is a wishlist option and they are very responsive. I've had a couple of requests that were implemented.

    http://freeperiod.co.uk/ does maximum of 25 bookings a week, which if you have a 5 period day should be good enough. Otherwise, HAP is another option.

    Another one using Home access plus, huge benefits in many ways beyond a simple booking sheet too.

    Highly recommend it hap.codeplex.com

    I've been using MRBS for about 5 years now, very easy to setup and very easy to modify to your needs, lots of configuration options, runs on IIS, PHP, MySQL, highly recommended!

    We just create calendars on our sharepoint server for each room and handle the room bookings that way.
