uoBooked: A workstation booking tool for Facilities
Workstations at 141 Louis Pasteur will be available for Facilities staff currently working from home. As of April 6th, 2021, reservations can be made in advance, but for no more than five consecutive days; walk-ins are not permitted.
While the University’s staff continues to work remotely, Facilities group is also providing the opportunity to work on Campus by reserving dedicated workstations and closed offices.
uoBooked is an off-the-shelf software that helps staff efficiently manage, book, and track physical resources such as desks and office spaces. Schedule views and searching tools allow users to find available times for the resources they need and to reserve them through a user-friendly interface.
Based on the floor plan of 141 LPR and Ottawa Public Health guidelines, the tool is configured to enforce these parameters. The intuitive interface allows users to immediately book available space with very little training.
Only authorized people are permitted on Campus. A supervisor approval is required before considering to reserve your desk. We still encourage to work remotely unless physical presence is required to maintain operational safety and the continuity of operations. Physical distancing rules apply at all times.
