Add a Custom Resource Type

OfficeRnD Hybrid allows you to create custom resource types to describe the bookable resources available across your offices and locations. 

What You'll Need

Add a Resource Type


  1. Navigate to Settings/Advanced Settings/Resource types.
  2. Click Add Resource Type.
  3. Describe the resource type (see the table below)
  4. Click Add.
Property Name Description

The name of the resource type (e.g. "Workshop", "Parking Lot").


An icon to represent the resource type on the portal.

Type A unique key that links the resource type to a zone type (e.g. "workshop", "parking_lot").
Floorplan resource The type of floorplan resource - desk or a zone.
Color A color that color codes the resource type on the floorplan.
Bookable Select, if the resource type should be available for booking on a calendar. You can choose whether a resource is bookable by the hour, or by the day.
Assignable Select, if you want to assign teams or employees to the resources of this type.
Booking Mode (if Bookable has been selected) Time (bookable by the hour) or Date (booked for a whole day)
Neighborhood Assignment Check if you'd like to assign this resource to Neighborhoods.


Add Resources of this Type to an Office Map

If the custom resource you are creating should be a bookable one, don't forget to include it in an existing booking page or create a new one for it. This way every resource you add to your floors will be visible in the Web Portal.

Your booking pages are located under Settings/Advanced Settings/Employee Apps/Apps Pages at the bottom section called Custom Pages (1).

If you'd like to include your brand new resource type in an existing office map, you can include it via the Resource Types dropdown selector (2):


More info on that as well as creating a brand new booking page for your custom resource can be found here.
