How to use the AskCody Displays

This article contains detailed instructions for using the AskCody Room Displays

AskCody Meeting Room Displays show daily activities and enable employees to schedule events directly on the digital door sign.

This makes it easier than ever to optimize your meeting room utilization. Displays are connected directly to the room calendar through the connected service account and prevent meeting interruptions and booking misunderstandings.

This article is a detailed instruction on how to use the Displays. There are two kinds of meetings that can be booked and displayed on the Displays: scheduled meetings and ad-hoc meetings. 

Displays are designed to instantly give an overview of meeting room availability, therefore, by default the Displays show a green background when the room is available, and a red background when it is occupied.

The color choice indicator is customizable. Thus, it might differ according to your organization's preferences. In this example, the default colors are presented.  

Scheduled meetings 

When you book a meeting room that has a dedicated Display outside of the meeting room, your meeting subject, its agenda, organizers, and attendees' names, alongside the beginning of the meeting and its duration, will be shown. Therefore, it is important to mark your meeting as private in case you do not wish to display the information of your meeting. Once the meeting has been booked, it will be shown on the Displays as shown below. 

Remember to confirm your meeting when you get to the meeting room. Otherwise, the meeting will be automatically removed and the room will become available. The meeting can be confirmed 15 minutes prior to the beginning of the meeting, and 15 minutes after the scheduled beginning. 

You are also able to cancel your meeting 15 minutes prior to and 15 minutes after the scheduled start time from the Displays.

At any moment during your meeting, you can extend or end your meeting. You can extend your meeting as long as it does not interfere with other scheduled meetings.

When ending a meeting, make sure to confirm that you want to end your meeting, otherwise it will not register the action. It is important to release the room if it is not being used, in order to allow your colleagues to use the facilities. Displays update the meeting information once every minute.
