I showcase my Desk Reservation system template built in Power Apps. This is a mobile based app that lets you book a desk and/or office space and keep track of your reservations.
This template could be used for many different scenarios like:
🖥 Reserving Desks for Social Distancing
🏢 Reserving Conference Room
🏫 Booking appointments with a professor
💇 Salon appointments and Many more!
Thank you for a thorough review and providing the template. I'm very excited to adapt your work into a equipment reservation and checkout system for our Children's hospital!
One question I have that I am hoping you could help point me in the right direction. How to allow multiple selections of items into one reservation.
Hi Cory, Excited to hear that you are adapting this template for your Children's Hospital!
To allow multiple selections you will have to make a few tweaks. In the "desks" screen I'm setting the selected desk to the selected item in the checkbox oncheck property. What you will need to do is change that to a collection instead of a variable so that each time you check an item it adds that to a collection of selected items. You can then take that and patch it to your data source.
Nice little app. I downloaded the templates form GitHub but found a few issues.
In the provisioning there is a mismatch between column names and the column names ion the creation of the default view 2.
This column name mismatch also carries through to the app itself.
I got the desk booking bit all working but couldn’t get the upcoming bookings / appointments working despite reviewing and updating the column names.
I am also wondering what the active column in the desks list is for and how one would go about using that to show just the active desks (say with a value of 1 rather than 0).
Looking to utilise this in a university setting potentially.
This video is very useful. Thank you for all details provided!
You asked for ideas for future videos, I'm looking for a very simple hardware tracking app.
Reserved date; item name, user name; returned date
The DS can be a SharePoint list; images can also be in SP. Ability to reserve multiple items.
@aprildunnam Is there a way so the user can only select one checkbox? I can't seem to work out how to stop them selecting more than one desk?
Thanks for the template, we are using it for hospital desk bookings too 🙂
I am trying to work on this at our factory to help with our teams, desk layout - and unfortunately, I am unable to import the items into the Solutions section of our Power Automate, and I get this error -
The solution file is invalid. The compressed file must contain the following files at its root: solution.xml, customizations.xml, and [Content_Types].xml. Customization files exported from previous versions of Microsoft Dynamics 365 are not supported.
Might I ask if there is a newer version, or how can I convert this to work in the latest version of Power Automate Thank you kindly for your time with this query.
