Description: Set up Coworks Conference Room Booking and/or Coworks Front Desk apps on an iPad or any other tablet by following these instructions:

System Requirements: Coworks does not provide tablet hardware but our apps should work on any iPad or tablet running iOS or Android operating systems. A Chrome or Safari browser is required for ideal function. NOTE: Fire tablets are NOT currently supported as they do not run Android, iOS or chrome.

Pro tip: Before setting up your tablet, be sure to go to your settings and turn off the "Auto Lock" or sleep settings. This will prevent your tablet screen turning off automatically. This app is designed to be always on and available to your customers!
