« Go Back


SummaryThis article describes how RingCentral Rooms can be configured to work with a 2nd iPad that can be displayed outside a room to check the room's schedule and availability. You may also book the RingCentral Room using the 2nd iPad.
A 2nd iPad placed outside the room shows you the room’s schedule and availability. It also lets you reserve the room from the iPad. However, you have an option to use a single iPad for Scheduling display and Room Controller
