What is a Resource Family 

Resource Families are hierarchies for meeting/function rooms. A Parent Resource can have Children Resources. Resource Families are needed for Resource Groupings.

For example, when trying to accommodate an event, you may need to book a couple of meeting rooms that are close together and that can be combined.  In this example,  the Parent Resource is "Meeting 1 & 2 (50sq)", which is made up of  two children resources "Meeting 1 (25sq)" and "Meeting 2 (25sq)".

How to Create a Family of Resources?

  1. Go to 'Resources'
  2. Click on 'New'                                                                                                  
  3. Fill the information of the Parent Meeting room, here we will call it “Meeting 1 & 2” and 'Save'
  4. Create the children meeting rooms
  5. Add the “Parent Resource”, which is the parent room “Meeting 1 & 2”
