columns
present each lab in alphabetical order. The table header also displays the number of machines in each lab after the lab name and a colon.
rows
present all booking periods for which a booking was made, from the earliest to the latest.
body
presents bookings in the following format:

[ class [.tut] ] [ : number_booked ] [ :date_key ]

where:

class
The class making the booking. Classes of the form: "COMPxxxx" are identified as "xxxx", while all others are displayed literally (eg: "SENG1234").
.tut
This suffix, if present, indicates that the class booking was made with a tutorial token.
Note:
  • Tutorial bookings extend the normal grace period from 7 minutes to 23 minutes (or for the duration of the period if the subsequent period is also booked with a tutorial token and for the same class).
  • The grace period is when logins are restricted to only those users for whom the booking was made.
number_booked
The number of machines booked displayed as a negative number in red.
If a class appears, but no number_booked, then the whole lab has been booked.
If no class appears then any number_booked refers to the number of individual bookings made by non-class users. This form of summary is Only produced if a single day or date is being summarized, and not when a range of dates is being summarized.
:date_key
This key is a colon followed by a blue number, and denotes a range of dates for which the class booking was made. It is only produced if a range of dates are being summarised, in which case a table is produced after the booking table which gives the corresponding range of booked dates for each key. This will include the blank key which is is assigned to the most common range of dates.
