Proximity Room View App

APPLIES TO: Coworking, Workplace

The Proximity Room View app lets your members and visitors easily check in to conference rooms, see guest WiFi information, end their reservation early, or extend their reservation without leaving the room. Proximity Room View is included with the price of every Proximity subscription.

About the Room View App:

  • There are two different views on the Room View app -- internal and external; each view serves a unique purpose. 
  • As a manager, you can switch the view (internal/external) by tapping once on the screen and clicking the gear icon in the lower right-hand corner. 
  • Remember to set your passcode on your Room View settings screen. This will help you prevent members from changing things they shouldn’t have access to.

  • Click here to assign the SSID for your resources - None, Static, RADIUS, or Meraki

Internal View 

The Internal View would be used on a device that sits inside the resource (example: sitting on a conference room table)

This is the view showing the meeting details and guest wifi information (helpful for members to verify they are in the correct room):
 

  • By viewing meeting details, your members will be able to see:
    • Which conference room they are in (more useful than you think)
    • When their reservation begins and when it ends
    • The WiFi network name and password 
    • The time! (also more useful than you may think)
    • Perhaps most importantly, attendees will receive verbal reminders to check-in and when their reservation is ending

This is the view to Require member check-in:


  • The check-in process allows members to indicate that they are actually present for their reservation. This can be helpful to make sure that your resources don’t appear empty and unavailable.
  • You can set your Reservable Resources to require Check-In. 
    • This is optional, and if you activate this setting, reservations will be canceled automatically if they have not checked in within the first 15 minutes of the scheduled reservation. 
    • To enable this option in Proximity for Cowoking, go to your Proximity dashboard and navigate to Manage Resources > Reservable Resources and edit the appropriate resource by clicking on its name or "Edit" next to the resource name. Scroll-down and check "Require Check In"
    • To enable this option in Proximity for Workplace, go to your Proximity dashboard and navigate to Manage Resources > Workspaces and edit the appropriate resource by clicking on its name or "Edit" next to the resource name. Tab over to "Settings" and toggle "Abandoned Reservation Protection"

This is the view showing the 5-minute countdown (helpful to keep things on track)


This is the view showing that the Reservable Resource is free to "use now" (helpful for squatters to reserve the room on demand):

The view showing End Meeting Early allows members to cancel their event early if they are finished with the conference room. Members do not get a refund or free time back for ending early. The system will bring up a warning making this clear. 

The view showing Extend meeting time allows members to extend their reservation "in the moment" and will bill them appropriately (as long as there are no existing reservations immediately after).

External View

The External View would be used on a device that is placed outside of the resource (example: mounted outside of the conference room door)

This is the view showing the Reservable Resource schedule and room availability:


  • By viewing the Reservable Resource schedule, members can also make local reservations "on-demand"
    • Members can press the “use now” button to make a free 15, 30 or 60-minute reservation - say if they need to pop in to make a phone call. 
    • It will show up on the reservation calendar as a “Local Reservation” while the reservation is active. The Use Now reservation does disappear after the reservation is over. The manager can view the calendar on the dashboard and check a box to view previous local reservations.
    • This can be edited or turned off in Settings > General.

This is the view showing a meeting is in progress:
