How To Room Reserve-Create a custom view

Create a custom view in Room Reserve:

This is an example of the path to your calendar as seen by patrons:
http://demo.evanced.info/events/lib/roomrequest.asp

To show reservations in a monthly "calendar" view, the path becomes:
http://demo.evanced.info/events/lib/roomreqeust.asp?vm=m
where "vm" stands for view mode, and "m" is monthly.

The "libnum" switch and others, listed in the table below, can be used to show reservations at a specific branch:
http://demo.evanced.info/events/lib/roomrequest.asp?vm=m&libnum=2

The switches (everything after "?") tell the system what to display and how to display it. The table below provides a reference for deciphering the switches.

vm=

Tells the system what format to use when displaying the room request page – "d" for day, "w" for week, "m" for month and "s" for search mode.

Example: vm=m

libnum=

This is used to view the rooms for a given library/branch or for all branches [Default is 0]. Use the library number (libnum=x) or "999" (ln=999) to specify which branches’ rooms are to be displayed or all (999).

AllBranchRoomsChecked=

This is used to pre-select all of the rooms in the chosen branch. If no branch is selected, branch 0 is used. This option is only useful if the view is "m" for month or "s" for search. =1(true) =0(false)

AllRoomsCheck=

This is used to pre-select all of the rooms in all branches. This option is only useful if the view is "m" for month or "s" for search. =1(true) =0(false)

Room=

This is used to pre-select a room in the selected branch. If the selected room does not exist, room=0 is used. This switch can cause trouble if room configuration is changed. Deleting then adding a room will change the room number and possible result in a link that is incorrect. =x (where x = room ID number)

HideWeek=1

This is used to hide the Week tab.

HideMonth=1
