Making Room or Common Facilities Bookings Through Slack

The Facility Manager may configure FacilityBot to allow Requestors to make Room or common facilities bookings through Slack. 

Note that the Facility Manager is able to switch off the Room 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.

This article outlines how the Requestor can make a room or common facilities booking through Slack.

  1. Search for the correct channel in Slack.
  2. Type “Hi,” “Start,” or other similar phrases to chat with the bot.
  3. Type or click the “Book Facility” button
  4. Follow the steps in Booking a Facility as guided by the Bot. Select the facility to be booked as well as the desired start and end time. The bot will indicate in real time if the desired booking time is available.
