How to manage Workspace Reservation for admins in zoom App

Managing Workspace Reservation for admins

The Workspace Reservation feature allows users to schedule time in the office and reserve a workstation. The Zoom user portal makes it very easy to book available workspaces within the office or on mobile devices, either by using the Virtual Receptionist Kiosk and Zoom Rooms for Touch devices or by booking through Zoom Web. Using room reservation software, you can check-in quickly and easily to Zoom desks with QR codes, access interactive maps, and view the current status of the desks.

A kiosk or digital signage can display the available and reserved workspaces for wayfinding as part of a live view of the available and reserved workspaces that are set up by administrators and owners.

Prerequisites for using Workspace Reservations

  • With the help of a Zoom Rooms license, your organization is able to enable workspace reservations
  • by granting account owners and administrators access to workspaces
  • for any of the four account types: Pro, Business, Education, and Enterprise
