Facility Managers may configure FacilityBot to allow Requestors to book hotdesks through Facebook Messenger.
Note that the Facility Manager is able to switch off the Desk Booking feature. In this case, Requestors for that building will not be able to access this feature. The Facility manager may also change the button and text for this feature.
