Configuring Features

A feature is built-in or permanent attribute of a room, such as a network connection, a built-in plasma TV, window, and so on. Your users can use features as criteria when they are searching for a room. They can also filter the available rooms that can be reserved for an event by room features. After you configure different room features for your organization, you must indicate which rooms have these features.

To configure features

1. On the EMS menu bar, click Configuration > Facilities > Features. The Features window opens. This window lists all the features that are currently configured in your EMS database.


2. Click New. The Feature dialog box opens.


3. In the Feature field, enter name or description for the feature.


The feature can be a maximum of 50 characters, including spaces.

4. If this feature is a video conferencing feature, then select Tied to Resource; otherwise go to Step 5.


This option is available only in EMS Enterprise. It is not available in EMS Professional. See Appendix B, “Video Conferencing,” for detailed information about the additional configuration required to use the video conferencing feature.

5. If you want VEMS users to see this feature when they are searching for available space, leave Available on Web selected.

6. Click OK. The Feature dialog box closes. You return to the Features window with the newly configured feature automatically selected.
