Manage seminar rooms

A Site Administrator can access the rooms administration dashboard by going to Quick-access menu > Seminars > Rooms.

The Manage rooms page provides a list of all rooms within the site and, by default, the ability to search for available rooms by date. Here you can also add new rooms.

The Manage rooms area is based on an embedded report so may be configured via the Report Builder, the results exported to .CSV, Excel, .ODS or PDF and each column (except Actions) sorted in ascending or descending order as required. Please see Reports for more information.

The Actions column provides a range of options against the corresponding room.



Clicking the details icon ( ) will allow you to view all information about the selected room, view all upcoming sessions in the Room and the corresponding Booking status of each. Use the Back to rooms button at the bottom of the page to return to the previous screen.


The edit icon () will allow you to update all details as described below.


The visible/invisible icons ( ,)  will allow you to hide or show a room from the list of available rooms for users creating a new event. This will not affect any events currently linked to the room.


The delete icon () is only available if the room is not currently assigned to an event.

Note that room deletion is managed by the \mod_facetoface\task\cleanup_task task, which is set to run once per day, so the deleted room will still appear until this task runs.

Currently assigned to an event

Will be listed against a room where a seminar event has been booked within this room.
