Getting Reservation Finder Set Up: 

1. You can reach out to your Account Manager or Customer Success Manager to get started on what it looks like to get this feature set up from a technical standpoint. 

2. In the meantime, the first step you and your team can take is adding any photos, blueprints, set up diagrams or other attachments to your Resources in FMX: 

  • You can do this by navigating to Admin Settings
    • Creating a Custom Field called Display Image.
    • Make sure that it is an Attachment type of Custom Field and that it is for Resources.
    • Hit save 
  • Once the Custom Field has been created, you can navigate to Resources & Locations, click on any of the Resources you are trying to add photos to and then click Edit
    • From there, you are able to add all the attachments you desire to have show up in Reservation Finder!


3. Another aspect that you and your team can set up is Resource Types in FMX: 

  • Navigate to Admin Settings and the first tab should be called General
  • Scroll down and find the Resource Settings section
  • Check the "Allow parent-child relationships" box
  • From there, you will be able to add in options for Resource Types 

4. Our FMX team will work on adding in the other custom fields and setting up the Reservation Finder module on your sidebar. This does require us to get some help from our Engineers so we appreciate your patience as they work to deploy the feature to your FMX site! 


If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to Support or to your main point of contact (Account Manager or Customer Success Manager)!
