Set-Up as an Individual or a Department

It is possible to set up Bookings for either an individual or an entire department. There are two ways to set up Bookings:

  1. Each faculty or staff member has their own separate Bookings system (and so each user must request a license); OR
  2. A department administrator manages a single Bookings system with all department faculty and staff calendars visible together. 

Individual users in scenario A all have different calendars that cannot be viewed collectively.  In scenario B, only the department admin must request a license.  The department can use a department email address as the account holder that is managed by multiple admins.  One or more admins can view all the calendars of staff and faculty in the department.
