To access more details, simply click on “coming soon” and you’ll be able to see a list of all the reserved equipment, including their name, start and end time.

  • Ongoing Reservations: When the reserved time for an equipment arrives, the user can click “Check In” to indicate they are now using the equipment. This changes the status to “Ongoing.”

  • Finished Reservations: During the usage period, the user can click “Check Out” either before or after completing their work with the equipment, but if a user fails to check in or check out, the reservation will be marked as a missed reservation.


In the “Help” Section of the app, you can find a quick guide on how to manage your reservation list and define all different settings.
