How do I schedule rooms?

At present the WriteUpp diary is clinician-centric so its not 100% straightforward to set up a diary for rooms, however there is a partial workaround which involves setting up the rooms as users, as below:

Invite a new user but instead of specifying a clinician's name enter the name of the room, see below:

For the email address we tend to recommend using an alias of your own email address. This way you will receive the login information for the account (in case you need it) directly into your regular email account.

Having done this the room will get its own diary, which is selectable from the panel that appears on the left, see below:

You can then book into the room making sure to specify the correct clinician when you book the appointment

The downside of taking this approach is that real clinical users would need to select the room each time they wanted to see their diary as the room diary is effectively shared between all user. But this may not be a big issue.

We realise this is a "hack" and we have no desire to benefit from this lack of flexibility in the diary so if you want to use this approach just let us know and we will not charge you for the rooms. Users must be licenced as normal.
