New permissions to manage event booking

Administrators on Premier plans can now further customize permissions and roles for their users with new settings for executives, assistants, or scheduling admins.

Bypass booking policies

People with permission may override any set scheduling policies for the designated space(s) or location(s). This setting would be most useful for office managers, executive assistants, or other folks who manage scheduling for other people.

How this works:

  • Members without this permission will have scheduling policies enforced
  • Members with this permission will be able to override any set scheduling policies
  • Admins are able to bypass booking policies by default

Manage events

Like bypassing policies, this setting is handy for people who manage scheduling for for others. People with permission may edit details or cancel events within the designated space(s) or location(s). Note that some event changes may require the user to have additional permissions within Google, Office 365, or Exchange.

How this works:

  • Members without this permission are able to manage only the events they have created
  • Members with this permission will be able to manage all events
  • Admins are able to manage all events by default

Skip Check-in

People with this permission will not have room reservations automatically unbooked if they forget to check in within the specified time. This setting is most useful for executives and other team members who's meetings should remain on the calendar.

How this works:

  • By default, all unconfirmed meetings will be automatically unbooked when the Abandoned Meeting Protection setting is enabled
  • All meetings organized by members with this permission will be confirmed automatically, and will not be canceled
