Step 5B – Select a resource

There are 2 ways to pick your resource. By default, you will see the "Asset List," which is a scrollable list of resources and times for a given day.

In most spaces, you can also switch to the "Floor Plan" view, select a specific resource and then see its availability for the given day.

Step 5C – Selecting a day

You can click on the blue underlined date to change to another day, by default, it will show the current date:

Step 5D – Selecting a time range

You can drag the time range around left and right by pressing and holding; this can be confusing on a computer as it doesn't scroll left and right with your mouse or trackpad.

To select a time, click one on the start time, scroll (drag) to the end time, and again click once on that. The time will be highlighted in blue:

Step 5E – Confirm

If you are on the Asset List, press Book after you've selected the time.

You must now read and agree to the ORB Terms and Conditions:

Step 5F – Errors

Each resource has a different set of rules, for how near your booking can be, how many you can book at once, and for how long.

If your booking violates these rules, you'll get an error explaining that and will need to adjust accordingly:

Please try another time slot (Ref: BAA016)"

Step 5G – Finished

You'll get a green tick confirming your booking.

More information about the resource

In the Asset List, you can click the blue underlined resource names to create a focused timeline and a picture of the item.

This is the same as clicking on the item in the Floor Plan view:
