The Manage rooms area provides a list of all Rooms within the site and, by default, the ability to search for available Rooms by date.

The Actions column provides a range of options against the corresponding Room.
Clicking the Details icon ( ) will allow you to view all information about the selected Room, view all upcoming sessions in the Room and the corresponding Booking Status of each. Use the Back to rooms button at the bottom of the page to return to the previous screen.
The Edit icon ( ) will allow you to update all details as described below.
The visible/invisible icons ( ,) will allow you to hide or show a Room from the list of available Rooms for users creating a new Event. This will not affect any Events currently linked to the Room.
The delete icon ( ) is only available if the Room is not currently assigned to an Event.
