Features Wish List

  • Member log in system - When you first enter the space you must login to track who is in the space and when
  • Camera integration - This would be nice to allow us to display the spaces video cameras for members
  • Space Committees Management - If we have different rotating teams of clean up crews, tool crews, etc.. it would be nice to track who is responsible for what each month
  • Book Library Management and check out - This would be nice to card catalog our books and if someone wants to check out a book we can keep track of who has what. It would be cool if we can setup a 30 day automatic return email to the member who check the book out.
