Managing the Workspace Check-In/Check-Out setting
The Workspace Check-In and Check-Out feature makes your workspace reservations efficient. When this setting is enabled, users are required to check in. For room reservations, the user must start the scheduled Zoom meeting or check in to keep a workspace reservation. If a user does not check into the room within a configurable number of minutes after the scheduled start time, the room is released from the scheduled meeting and will be made available for others to use. Account owners and admins can enable this setting to allow workspace check-in while disabling the setting to release the reservation after a specified amount of time.
Starting a scheduled meeting, starting an instant meeting, making a phone call, and starting a screen share count as checking in and do not require a separate check-in. For desks and reservation-only room workspaces, QR codes can be printed and placed on workspaces for check-in.
If the reservation ends earlier than expected, users can check out of the reservation, which shortens the calendar event and makes that unused time available again for others to use.
