Classroom Usage Dashboard Tutorial

The Classroom Usage Dashboard is an on-demand tool to lookup classes scheduled in the classrooms. This schedule gets updated daily.

Procedure:

  2. To use the filter on the right with Building, Room Number, and Meeting Pattern:

    2. Check only the items your want.

      Meeting Pattern Drop Down Selection List

      Note: the example above is for Lecture Hall 1 in King Hall on a Wednesday. You must select all instances of  "W" to get a clear chart of usage on a Wednesday. This selection process applies to all days: M,T,W,R,F,S,U.

      M = Monday
      T = Tuesday
      W = Wednesday
      R = Thursday
      F = Friday
      S = Saturday
      U = Sunday

  3. From the resultant chart, you can find gaps in the room schedule. In this case there are only 10 minute gaps during Wednesdays. Less popular rooms may have much longer gaps.
