@valerie I see @ZachLikesBobaTea 's got a good point though- you can end it early, but what resource are you booking out, and why? If you’re there to pick up a 3D print and someone’s got the area booked, I don’t see a concrete reason you would need an exclusive reservation for equipment you’re not even using. Someone with a reservation using that area isn’t likely a problem for picking something up. And if you can create a reservation, it does block others from scheduling the area ahead of time, even if you just show up, grab something, and use the “end reservation early” after 5 minutes.
AFAIK we have helpful volunteers who are fairly often coming by to do maintenance, stewarding around the shop for a bit, or general space-work (like the laser room) and I don’t see where we put that on Skedda. Seems like coming by to pick up something but not actually needing an official work station on Skedda is a similar thing.
