Spaces & Equipment: Customize the frequency of booking mediation alerts

In this article

When mediation is enabled for a space or equipment booking category, you can either allow any user to mediate those bookings or designate only specific users to do so. If you opt to restrict mediation to specific users, either at the location or category levels, LibCal will send them email notifications when new bookings are pending mediation for their assigned location or category. (No email is sent if the booking's location or category does not have designated mediators.)

LibCal allows you to set the frequency of these email notifications. You can choose to either:

  • Send an hourly digest containing a summary of all outstanding mediated bookings requiring approval.
  • Immediately notify all designated mediators of any booking that requires approval.

Please note, this option applies to all space & equipment booking locations.


To configure this option, Admin users should follow the steps below.

  1. Log into LibCal, click on Admin in the navigation bar, and select Spaces & Equipment from the dropdown menu.
  2. On the Manage Spaces & Equipment page, click on the Settings tab.
