Login Screen

bookarink.us allows users to make reservations on rinks which they have access to, based on any rules or quotas in place. Users can manage their reservations (add, edit, delete), and update their profile. System administrators have additional capabilities to configure the system and manage reservations.

dashboard

Announcements

Announcements are a very simple way to display notifications to users. An announcement can be configured with a start and end date. A priority level is also available, and HTML is allowed within the announcement text. This allows you to embed links or images from anywhere on the web. Announcements can be targeted to a user group or to users who have access to a certain resource. Announcements can be emailed to users as well.

create reservation create reservation

Reservations

A user creates a reservation by selecting the day and timeslot desired. The system will not allow two reservations for the same resource at the same time. Through the use of Custom Attributes, additional data fields can be added to the reservation screen.

blackout

Blackouts

Blackouts can be used to prevent reservations from being booked at certain times. This feature is helpful when a resource is temporarily unavailable or unavailable at a scheduled recurring interval. Blacked out times are not bookable by anyone, including administrators.

quotas

Quotas

Quotas restrict reservations from being booked based on a configurable limit. If a reservation would violate any quota, the user will be notified and the reservation will be denied. The quota system is very flexible, allowing you to build limits based on reservation length and number reservations. Quotas applied to a group are enforced for each user in the group individually. It does not apply to the group's aggregated reservations. Application Administrators are exempt from quota limits.

users

Users

You can add, view, import, and manage all registered users. bookarink.us allows you to change resource access permissions of individual users, assign users to groups, deactivate or delete accounts, reset user passwords, edit user details, assign specific user reservation colors, and view the reservations of a user.

resources

Resources

Resources can be anything you want to make bookable.

Resource attributes include: status (available, unavailable, hidden), schedule assignment, resource type, sort order, location, description, notes, calendar subscriptions, resource image, and resource color.

Resource duration settings include the ability to set a minimum reservation duration, maximum reservation duration, and a reservation buffer.

Reservation access settings include the ability to set reservation lead time, how far into the future reservations can be set, reservation approval, and if users are automatically granted permission to the resource.

Resources can be assigned to individual users or user groups. Application Administrators are exempt from usage constraints.

schedules

Schedules

A schedule defines the individual timeslots available to each rink. When creating a schedule, the only requirement is you must provide slot values for all 24 hours of the day (either as a reservable time slot, or a blocked time slot). bookarink.us can use the same layout for every day of the week, or you can customize the layout for each day of the week.

Schedules can be displayed starting on any day of the week and for any number of days.

reports

Reports

Reports are a method to summarize reservation data. bookarink.us comes with a set of Common Reports which can be viewed as a list of results, a chart, exported to CSV and printed. In addition, ad-hoc reports can be created. This also allows listing, charting, exporting and printing. In addition, custom reports can be saved and accessed again later. Saved reports also can be emailed.
