Since some months it has been possible to book an office in a physical location using the new possibilities offered by Microsoft workspaces.

In the image below, you can see that the room finder has a new drop-down menu for 'type'. In the drop-down list you can select a workspace or a meeting room. This can be the workspace  that is allowed by the organisation. So there is a physical workplace attached with digital control on the number of places. Other people cannot book a place that has already been taken.

This is what users can see through the online calendar of Office 365. Not yet possible for all Office 365 Outlook clients but possible in Outlook Online.
