Add and manage space / equipment booking form questions

LibCal makes it easy to create custom booking forms. Thanks to the Question Bank, you can create a question once and reuse it in any number of question forms. This is great for common questions you ask multiple times, such as a patron's phone number, ID number, or status, since you won't have to recreate that question over and over for each new form. Plus, when you make a change to a question, it'll be reflected in every form where it's being used.


Getting there

Head to Admin > Equipment & Spaces > Booking Forms. If you don't see the Admin menu, you are not an Admin level user in your system.

Navigating to the Booking Forms page
