Connect OfficeRnD Flex and LiquidSpace
- Decide which resources you want to expose via LiquidSpace. The integration allows you to expose your OfficeRnD Flex meeting rooms in LiquidSpace, making them publicly available via the LiquidSpace platform. Which rooms will be listed on LiquidSpace is something that you discuss with LiquidSpace during the setup of your account - you can expose all of your meeting rooms or only a select few.
Note: At the moment, the integration doesn't allow you to expose custom resource types in LiquidSpace.
- Decide on the pricing model for the meeting rooms you'll expose via LiquidSpace. Note that you can have different prices for the meeting rooms considering the different target audiences.
- Fill out a request form - to connect OfficeRnD Flex and LiquidSpace, fill out this form. Then a representative from LiquidSpace will get in touch with you in order to create an account for you and discuss which rooms you want to expose on their platform.
We'll handle the rest of the integration set up in collaboration with the LiquidSpace team. Once LiquidSpace has everything they need, they'll contact us so we can configure the integration in your admin account:
- We will add a LiquidSpace application in the "Developer Tools" section of your OfficeRnD Flex admin portal, which will be used to establish a connection between the two platforms.
- We'll also create a teammate, named LiquidSpace Reservations, in your OfficeRnD Flex admin portal, who will act as the requester of all bookings coming from LiquidSpace.
How Does It Work?
When OfficeRnD Flex and LiquidSpace’s integration is configured, a specific set of meeting rooms are exposed via the LiquidSpace platform. These meeting rooms can then be booked directly from LiquidSpace, with the billing, booking policies, and cancellation policies all being handled on the LiquidSpace side.
When someone books one of your meeting rooms in LiquidSpace, the integration syncs the booking with OfficeRnD Flex. In your OfficeRnD admin portal, the requester of the booking is always one and the same - LiquidSpace Reservations - an admin user profile part of your admin company account in OfficeRnD Flex.
