Setting up a new room display

So you got a new iPad or a digital room panel display? Let's set it up as a YAROOMS enabled panel with the YAROOMS Meeting Room Display app.

To set up a new room display, follow these steps:

  1. Open your YAROOMS web app and go to Manage → Integrations → Meeting Room Display, and press Add+.
  2. Download the Meeting Room Display App from the AppStore or GooglePlay.
  3. If you're using a display device that requires an APK, please download it from here.
  4. Open the app on your tablet/room panel device and click the "Scan now" button. Then, get back to the web app and click the “Show QR code” button. Scan the code found in your Yarooms account. 

Make sure you are the only person who can see the screen, because the QR code that will be generated is a credential that can grant access to your user data.


          Alternatively, you can use the Activation Key (found in your Yarooms account, above the
          QR code) to activate your device.

5. Then, complete the device's setup in the web application. In the “Details” tab, specify the device’s:

  • Name
  • Location
  • Floor
  • Space
  • Language
  • Default duration (default booking duration used in quick booking)


6. Use the “Design” tab to modify your room display’s interface (colors, time and date format, add background image, etc.) and behaviours.

Skip booking form - available only if space group has custom booking strategy enabled and the current interval is free.

Require login actions - if set to "Yes", a modal containing a QR code will appear when trying to perform an action (book space, check in, end or extend the booking) from the meeting room display. To authorize the action, this QR code must be scanned with the phone camera. The user will be redirected to the web app to approve or cancel the pending action. After that, the meeting room display will show the success (or failure) message.
