  7. Is there a limit to the number of resources that can be managed by uReserve? Technically, No. There is no limit to the number of resources that can be managed by uReserveTM. The only limitation is the amount of time you are willing to allow for your web pages to load. That is, the more resources that you have, the longer the weekly schedule page will take to load. The recommended number of resources is under 20 different resources per installed copy of uReserve.

  8. Is the daily time range that is displayed on the online scheduling pages configurable? Yes! The default time range is 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. (08:00 - 18:00), but you can change this to any 24-hour time frame. (See configuration questions #7 and #8).

  9. What display preferences can I configure in regard to how the online schedule pages look? In addition to changing the time range (as specified above), these are the sorts of display preferences that can be changed: Font colors, text colors, background colors, the reserved indicator color, the reserved indicator symbol, the background image, the main image on the page, most font sizes, some of the text labels and some of the text messages. See the special "Preference Questions" in the script setup for more information.... they should be self-explanatory.

  10. What display preferences can't be configured? Basically what can't be changed is the overall layout of the schedule pages. That is, the pages will always be displayed with 7 schedule tables on each weekly schedule page... one table for each day of the week. Furthermore, the "Previous Week" and "Next Week" navigation buttons will always be located at the bottom of the page.

  11. How far ahead can resources be scheduled? For efficiency sake, we limited the schedule time to within 100 years. (Up to 2100).
