Room configurations are unique physical layouts that may be scheduled for a given room. A room has a default configuration (required) and any number of other possible configurations. The default configuration is automatically scheduled unless an alternate configuration is specifically requested by an activity for a special purpose. Rooms with multiple configurations are most commonly used for event scheduling. For example, the default configuration for a room may be tablet arm chairs with seating for 50, but alternatively it could be set up with circular tables and seating for 25.


The configuration of a room includes the following details:


Configuration name


Layout type (provided from defined list of standardized types for your institution)




Setup time


Teardown time




Room image


Default flag
