Set Up Required Check-In


Admins can require employees to check-in for all hotel desk bookings in Desk Booking Settings. If they don't check in to their reservation, you can automatically cancel their booking and free up valuable hotel desk space. 

When you enable the Require Check-In setting, you are presented with two additional options:

  • Enable automatic cancelation of bookings if an employee doesn't check-in for their reservation. You can specify how long after booking start-time the cancelation occurs in Auto-Release Booked Desks setting.
  • Designate employees who are exempt from required check-in. If health screenings are enabled in your account, no employee check-in exemptions will be allowed. 

Note: regardless of whether check-in is required and your Require Check-In setting is ON or OFF, your employees will receive reminders about their upcoming reservations. 


Enable Require Check-In

From the SiQ Web App, complete the following:

  1. In the top-right corner, click your username and then click Settings.
  2. From the left menu, click Desk Booking Settings.
  3. Scroll down to find Require Check-In.
  4. For Require Check-In, click the toggle ON.


When Require Check-In is turned ON, two more options become available:


  • Auto-Release Booked Desks - enable this setting to automatically free up hotel desks if the employee doesn't check-in. If this setting is ON, specify when to cancel the booking. For example:
  • Exempt from Check-In - exempt select employees from the check-in requirement.
    • Click + to add an employee to this exemption. You can add multiple employees to the exemption list. requirecheckin3.jpg

    • If health screenings are enabled, employee check-in exemptions are not permitted. So, if your health screenings are enabled, you'll see this message:
