Managing reservations of lab resources

You can directly reserve a lab resource or modify the reservations from the calendar view in the Reservation section of the lab resource editor page. You can also delete the reservations if you no longer require the lab resource for testing. In the calendar view, you can change the view to see the reservations for a month, week, days, or a single day.
