How do I reserve a meeting room?
There are multiple methods you can use to reserve a meeting room:
Robin Plugin for Google
If the room is available you may reserve it for up to 90 minutes via the display just outside the room's entrance. Simply tap on the desired amount of time you wish to use the room and the device will make a reservation for you.
The mobile app is great for checking meeting room availability, reserving a room, and checking in to your reservation. It also provides the following:
You will receive a notification close to the end of your reservation allowing you to quickly extend it if needed, if the resource is available.
If your meeting ends early you can also end the reservation to open up he room for others to use.
And finally, if you allow location services the app will automatically reserve an open room if you enter it and are there for 5 or more minutes.
To reserve a resource, open the app and tap on Office. Select Martin Hall if it is not already selected. From the dropdown at the top of the screen you can select the building and floor where the resource you wish to reserve resides. From here you can visually see and tap on rooms or select the list icon at the top right of the screen to see all the resources available. Once you've selected a resource you can then Book now to reserve the resource immediately, or create a future reservation by tapping on New event.

Robin Plugin for Google
If you prefer to continue reserving spaces in Google Calendar we highly recommend that you utilize the Robin Plugin. When you go to create an event in Google Calendar the plugin will slide in from the right and help you find an available resource with the amenities that you need.

You can use Google Calendar as you always have. The Robin service runs on top of the one Google provides and is not required.
