Spaces XML Feed

Spaces allows you to create custom XML/RSS feeds. An example feed of http://demozonepublic.evanced.info/spaces/patron/spacesxml?dm=xml&loc=7&limit=5 will pull in reservation data, limiting the results to the first five reservations ("limit=5"), for the Activity Room ("loc=7") in the Main Library on our demo site.
 
Note: the Spaces XML feed currently only returns data for one day. You can change the specific day for which you'd like to receive reservation data via the ds= switch or the do= switch, but you cannot receive more than one day of reservation data at a time.

To build your feed, take your base URL, add a ?, then add dm=XYZ to determine the type of feed you are creating (where XYZ is XML, RSS, etc.)
http://[Your URL].evanced.info/spaces/patron/spacesxml?dm=xml
You can add additional parameters by adding a & character followed by a parameter. For example:
http://[Your URL].evanced.info/spaces/patron/spacesxml?dm=xml&lib=1000
