How to Manage Your Reservations in EMS

Here is how to manage your reservations and bookings in the EMS Web App. After reading through if you would like to view the video on how to manage your reservations, please click here.


A Reservation is the purpose of the event. In EMS, a reservation is the who (the meeting organizer) and the what of an event. A Reservation contains one or more Bookings. For example, you (the who) can reserve some space for a staff meeting (the what).


A Booking is the where and the when of an event. For example, you can schedule the large auditorium (the where) for a staff meeting on the second Monday in January (the when). There are one or more Bookings in a Reservation.
