  • Edit MIN_BEFORE_BOOK and MIN_BEFORE_RELEASE variables (set in minutes) to suit your needs. Those two variables set the threshold for how many minutes does the room need to be occupied or empty before an action (auto book/release/check-in) occurs. We recommend setting those two numbers lower for a huddle space (e.g. 2 or 5 minutes) and higher for large boardrooms (5 or 10 minutes).


9. When you have all the variables set up, you can turn the integration ON by toggling the button.




10. If everything is set up correctly you should see the logs starting to populate.
