Spanish Point have developed a PowerApp Desk Booking app, designed to help businesses protect their staff as they return to work following the COVID-19 lockdown. The purpose of the app is to enable users to book their desk in advance when they want to go to the office. As part of the booking process, users can see if desks immediately next to them are booked for that day. If they are, they can then consider booking from an available pool of hot desks or working from home on that day to maintain social distance. Organisations have a responsibility to keep track of what people are in the office and who they are in proximity to as they get people back to work. The app can help you track all bookings and makes them available in a secure way through Excel.
We have built this app so that it can be used by most businesses who have Office 365. Buildings, Floor Plans and Desk layouts are all configurable at system setup. We recognise that this is a difficult time for businesses and want to do our part to help. We are providing the app free of charge, including the source code, so that companies can adapt and customise it as needed. If needed, we can provide implementation or customisation services. The app is a “Canvas App” and stores its data in SharePoint lists. Any customer with an E3 Office 365 subscription should have everything they need in place to be able to use the app.
