add functionality to let us reserve library study rooms
Currently we have to go to the full library website to reserve rooms, it would be nice to have this functionality in the drexelone app.
How important is it to students to be able to specify a specific room and specific times instead of just the building, room size, and approximate times needed?
If you can do something better than just web links, sounds great to me. The web links were meant as a compromise idea in the event library functions don't get natively added to the app.
Everything that happened after the app passed you to the phone's browser, would be up to the site. I'm still not keen on starting to fill the app with web links, but I do like the idea of the functionality. If more people vote up this idea, there's a greater chance of more library functions happening.
Already signed in would be nice, but I wouldn't make it a requirement. Would be easy enough to do after the library website opens, assuming that it'll display a login page for access-restricted pages before loading the page.
In this scenario, you'd want the D1 app to have signed you in to the library website before presenting it to you, right? (That might not be easy/possible, but we could investigate it.)
While I believe the library has a fantastic mobile-optimized website, I also wouldn't mind seeing more library integration into DrexelOne, even if it just opens the mobile website to display what is being requested. For example, from DrexelOne, I would tap Me > Library > My Account. My phone's browser would then open the library's mobile site, tuned to the page listing everything I have currently checked out.
