Configuring Meeting Room Displays (Displays)

Learn about how to set up the AskCody Displays in your organization

AskCody Meeting Room Displays (also called Displays) display daily meeting activities and enable employees to schedule ad-hoc meetings directly on the display.

This makes it easier than ever to optimize your meeting room utilization, reduce office friction, and give employees an overview of meetings and room reservations in the workplace. The Meeting Room Display prevents meeting interruptions and booking misunderstandings.

Setting up a Meeting Room Display template

Setting up Meeting Room Displays, the first thing you need to do is to set up a room display template. This allows you to control what information should be displayed and what features a Meeting Room Display should have enabled for your end-users.

A Meeting Room Display can only have one template at a time, but a template can be used and inherited on multiple displays at once. This enables you to change the displayed content on multiple displays without having to edit each individual display.

Please go through these steps to set up a Meeting Room Display template.

  1. Log in to the AskCody Portal with the credentials created when creating your organizational account by clicking here. Choose EU or US.
  2. Click on the Admin Center on the left panel.
  3. In the Admin Center, click Displays and select Display Template.
  4. Now, either edit the default template or add a new by selecting Add.
  5. Fill out the information and select the required features for the room display to support the needs of your organization.
  6. Click Add to finish and save the template.
