Tags: Events / Tailored

This Room Bookings slide can be included within a playlist rotation on an existing screen location, or displayed on a dedicated Wayfinding screen.
It shows events (or room bookings) for 'Today' only and will use screen settings to determine the correct day/time. Complementary to our events based slides, events will stay onscreen until the end of the booking time.
All events that are 'On Now' are highlighted clearly for the viewer. A visual indicator will also indicate if there are "no bookings" - from either the room having no bookings for the day, or when the bookings have finished for the day. Fields allow for Heading, Summary, Start/End times and date.
It accommodates up to 3 rooms, but to add more than 3 rooms, just duplicate the slide and add different room booking calendars.
This supports single day events only. If a multiple day booking is required, enter it as a single day event in Outlook and use the recurring settings to repeat over the needed days. 
  • Modern styling with a focus on event list and on-now feature.
  • Feature carousel will show all 'on-now' events.
  • Directional arrow pointer to point to the room in relation to the screen location.
  • Use the Vibe Web Portal, File upload, Google Sheets, or Calendar (Google, Outlook 365)
  • Toggle to turn on/off the Event Summary, leaving only the title.

  4. This slide is designed to be very flexible with the items you have. Please consider if you have too much content in either the title or summary, as it will 'flow' off the bottom of the slide and not be seen.

Tips

  • This supports single day events only, as our software cannot 'guess' at choosing suitable end or start times for each day of a multiple-day booking. If a multiple day booking is required, enter it as a single day event in Outlook and use the recurring settings to repeat over the needed days.

  • All fields a general 'Text' fields. If you are having issues with seeing 'patchy' data. Ensure all fields are 'Text' or 'General'
  • Is there a maximum number of items? What will show in screen is dependent on how many items you have overall on any given day. The slide is designed to not show an error, but if you have too many items that contain lengthy Titles and Summaries, you may find that some will not show, or will be cut off the bottom of the screen, until closer to the start date.
  • The slide will auto-refresh every 1 minute to remove items that are not available in the current time. However, this behaviour is only more useful for spreadsheet items than for web portal items. This is because:
    • When using a Spreadsheet - items will be loaded to the slide, and the slide will use the Day and Timeslot columns to control items' visibility.
    • When using the Vibe Web Portal - the server will control items' visibility via date, time and repeat fields, so only some items will be loaded on the slide at a time. When the player syncs (every 5 minutes) and gets a new update from the server, the player will reload the slide with new items.
