Spaces & Equipment: Set your default location & tab view

In this article

When you are logged into LibCal, clicking on the Spaces or Equipment links in the navigation bar will allow you to view and manage space & equipment bookings, respectively. By default, each page will initially display the first tab on the page (Utilization for Spaces and Booking Grid & Availability for Equipment), with the location filter set to the first location listed under the Locations tab of the Admin > Spaces & Equipment page.

Each user, however, can choose to display a different default tab and/or location on those pages.

Admin-level users can also set or change the defaults when editing a user's account.
