User manual: how to use the parking spot booking feature

A short guide to help you use the parking spot booking and sharing feature

Jump to:

Tidaro is an intuitive app that lets you book and share your company parking spots.

If you have already reserved a parking spot on a certain day, it will be displayed on the home screen. You can see its location by clicking the show on map button. To cancel your booking today, click release for today.

Parking spot booking

To book a parking spot, go to the book a spot tab. Select the area you want to book in from the list at the top of the screen. Then click on the map pick to select a location from the interactive map of the car park, or click book any and the system will assign you a spot from the pool of available spots.

How to use the map of the parking lot

When you select the map pick, the app displays an interactive map of the car park. The white-green circles mark the spots that are ready for booking. Click on one of them and confirm your booking with the book this spot button at the bottom of the screen.

Use the parking map to locate your booked parking spot. The app also works offline to make it easier for you to navigate underground car parks.

Parking spot releasing

To release a parking spot, go to the release spots tab, select the days you want to release your booking, and confirm the action with the confirm dates button at the bottom of the screen.

Then you can release your spot for everyone to book by selecting the release for all. If your company has enabled spots sharing, you can hand over your parking spot to a specific person by selecting them from the list.

Please note that sharing a parking spot cannot be revoked on your own. If you wish to reclaim your parking spot, please contact your office administrator. You can also go to the book a spot tab to reserve a new spot.

Parking spot booking notifications

This is a feature that can be enabled by our clients (office managers, admins, etc.) with our help. 

What does this feature do? 

It allows employees to enable notifications that will remind them about their upcoming parking spots bookings.

Tidaro will be able to send reminders to users who have a parking spot booking for the next day. Users will receive a notification on their mobile device, which they can tap to see more details. If they click on the notification, they will be able to see the details of their reservation and even cancel it if they no longer need it.

The reminders will be sent the previous day in the afternoon. Users can manage their notifications in their device settings, not within the app.

Let’s see how this feature works, once the company enables it.

1. Login to Tidaro

2. You will see a screen where you will be asked whether you want to allow notifications.

Will you allow notifications?

3.  From the next screen that shows up you can select between allowing and not allowing us to send notifications.  You can always turn off notifications from the phone’s settings. 

4. In your Tidaro profile you also have the option to manage the notifications later on.

5. When a notification is being sent, and the app is off or in the background, the notification will be visible in the phone’s Notification Center.

6. When the app is opened, the notification will not be visible in the Notification Center. The upcoming bookings screen will be opened automatically in the app.

7. If you no longer need the booking, you can go with the “Release for tomorrow” option.
