March 2017: Requesting the Layout You Need for Your Event
The best way to request a particular setup for a room is not in the location field/s, but rather in the resources section. There you will select the item you need and put the note in that resource’s setup instruction field to request a configuration.
For example, select “Table – Six Foot” and in the Setup Instructions field, type “Please set up tables in a U-shape”; or select “Chairs” and type “Please arrange chairs in a circle in the center of the room.” Alternatively, you can ask for the resource Custodial Support/Setup Needed, and then in the instructions text field for that resource, type a message about what kind of setup you want.
Screen shots in the PDF below have more details.
