New Setting: Cancel Booking After Checking In

Occasionally, an employee may complete a health check or check-in but have reason to cancel last minute. Admins can allow this by enabling a new Desk Booking setting: Cancel Bookings.


Cancel Booking After Check-In

If admins allow cancelations after check-in, employees can do so on their web and mobile apps.

On SiQ Web, if you need to cancel a booking you've already checked in for, navigate to My Bookings and find the booking. Then, click the Trash icon next to the booking.

In this screenshot, notice that the employee has already checked in for the booking:


On the SiQ Mobile Home screen, you can cancel a booking you've already checked-in for the same way you cancel any other type of booking: cancel a booking from the Home screen by swiping left, or on cancel on the booking information page by tapping Cancel Booking.

View Filters for Employees

SiQ has added View Filters for employees so they can customize their floor plan views.

Employees have these view filter options:

  • Department Areas
  • Neighborhoods
  • Employee Workplace Groups
  • Seat Workplace Groups
  • Team Areas


When a view filter is enabled, the feature selected appears as blocks on the floor plan; so, when you turn on a neighborhood filter, you see colored neighborhood blocks on the floor plan along with neighborhood names.

Enhanced Hotel Desk Booking Report

Timezone, Department, and Workplace Group columns have been added to the Hotel Desk Booking Report.

  • If an admin is viewing the report from a laptop in NY, the timezone featured on the report is EST. If the admin is viewing the report from a laptop in Melbourne, the timezone that appears on the report is AEST.
  • Hotel Desk Booking Report exports will include new column data.

Scroll across the report to see all the columns, including the Workplace Group column. Here's a look at the new columns:

Turn Admin Health Check Notifications On or Off

New Health Screening settings give you control over whether admins receive email notifications when a health check isn’t completed. Individual admins can turn reminders on or off as well.

Control When to Cap Future Bookings

By default, employees can reserve hotel desks for up to 6 months in the future. New Desk Booking Settings allow you to customize this limit. So, you can cap bookings at 3 months, allowing employees to book for up to 3 months in advance. Or, you can cap bookings at 1 day, ensuring that employees can only book for the day and not into the future.

You can find this setting in Settings > Desk Booking Settings > Cap Future Bookings.

This is an example of the Cap Future Bookings setting.

Share Your Hotel Desk Booking on SiQ Web

You can copy a reservation link from SiQ Web and share it by email, SMS, or your favorite communications app.

You'll find this setting in My Bookings next to each reservation listing.

Separate “Remote” and “No Desk Needed” Statuses

You can mark your employees as “Remote”, “No Desk Needed”, or both. 
You'll find the Remote and No Desk Needed notation in several places in SiQ; this screenshot was taken from Manage Employees and shows you separate Remote and No Desk Needed settings.



Location Admins Can Manage Bookings

We’ve expanded location admin permissions so they can better manage bookings for their locations. New permissions enable them to view and cancel all bookings for managed locations. They can also import bookings and view import history for their managed locations.
