Room Features

Room features are permanent attributes of a room that are significant for scheduling purposes. Only those specific room attributes that are often requested or required by activities should be included as room features. Keep in mind that excessive use of room feature requests can limit room selection to the point of virtually pre-assigning rooms to sections.

The room feature list must be defined before room feature edits or room feature requests can be made. Additionally, room features may be organized into groups through the use of configured feature categories. If you are importing room records during implementation, the feature list may be established during the import process. You may also manually configure and update the feature and feature category list at any time.

Ad Astra offers a service in the event you would like to include additional room and room attributes en masse, rather than manual entry. Please contact Software Support if this is something you have an interest in.

  5. Enter a name and description and click OK. The new category is added to the list and is available for use.



To configure the list of room features:

  1. Click on the Settings tab.
  2. Click on the Features option.
  3. Click Add.
  4. Specify a name and description for the feature.
  5. Optionally, select a category from the list. Using categories is optional. Features with no category will display as “No Category”.
  6. Check the Allow Qty box to enable quantities for the feature you are adding. Enabling quantities for the feature allows a quantity to be specified when that feature is added to a specific room, and therefore a quantity may be requested for scheduling.
  7. Click OK to add the feature to the list.
