NexBoard is a companion tablet app for Nexudus administrators that is available on iOS and Android. The app works in portrait and landscape mode. 

 

For devices running Android versions below 6.0

Changes to Play Store device verification means you might not be able to download the app. If you get an error message saying the app is not compatible with your device, you'll need to download the APK for the app directly from services like APKPure or APKCombo.

 

What is Nexboard?

Nexboard connects to your Nexudus account to show upcoming meetings, display availability, coordinate conference room reservations and let users request a booking directly from the device.

Setting up NexBoard

When you open the app you will be prompted to log in. 

You cannot use a regular user account to access NexBoard. When you open the app, you will need to log in using a full admin account.

NexBoard is now set up. You can place the tablet alongside your resource and let your customers quickly make bookings.

Nexboard displays the name of your resource, availability details and icons representing the features you have listed on Nexudus.

For iOS tablets, turn off the auto-lock feature in Settings -> Display & Brightness to ensure your tablet stays on when displayed.

 

Making a Booking Using NexBoard

Customers can request bookings either using their smartphone via the Passport app or directly via the resource tablet.

1- Making a booking using a smartphone

Customers can make bookings by simply tapping the resource tablet with their phone.

If customers don't have the Passport app already installed on their phone, the tablet will display step-by-step instructions for them to download the app.

If customers already have the Passport app installed and are logged in, when they tap the tablet they will automatically see this screen.

2 - Making a booking directly via the resource tablet

Customers can also directly click Request Booking on the tablet. All they need to do is select when they want to make their booking and sign in using their Nexudus login details to confirm the booking.

Automatically Cancel No-show Bookings Using NexBoard

You can require customers to check in using NexBoard within the first 15 minutes of their booking. If they don't tap the check-in button on the app within that time, their booking is automatically cancelled and the resource becomes available again.
