Open the Resource Public Calendar Page 

The public calendar page for custom bookable resource types is available at the following link: 

[Members_Portal_URL]/public/calendar?type=[type]

  • You can find the Members_Portal_URL under Settings/Account Details/Account Setup.
  • As type enter the Type value of the bookable resource which you'll find in the Type field when you click on the resource to edit it in Settings/Space.
In order for the custom resource to appear on the public calendar, it needs to have a resource rate selected. Click here to learn more.
