Using Operate Rooms
Operate Rooms will show the following:

Who has the meeting room booked
Other bookings in place for the day, by tapping the slide out arrow
Further details of the meeting, by tapping the meeting itself
The navigation bar on the left shows the current time at the top, as well as the next few hours in the day down the side. You can use the arrow in the centre of the navigation bar to slide the bar out and see more detail on who has the room booked. Tapping on any meeting will display the information full screen.
Tip: We recommend putting your iPad in guided access mode when situated outside or inside a meeting room. This stops users accidentally closing the app. More detail can be found here.
