The Percent of Rooms in Use by Day and Time for Selected Room Type report shows the percent of rooms used for sections or events of a selected room type during a selected date range. Usage is broken down by the time of day and day of the week. This allows a user to see what percentage of rooms are in use at different times of the day. The included graph provides a visual representation of rooms in use. The percentage calculation can either be based on the total number of rooms of the selected type in the room inventory or be based only on the number of rooms used during the selected date range.
This report can be used to assist in identifying bottlenecks (when certain types of rooms are used at a disproportionate level at certain times). This information can be used to help enforce an academic scheduling policy emphasizing the spreading of classes throughout the entire scheduling week.
