Using Genie Windows Regions

Users of BookingBuilder Genie, version 418 and higher, now have the added functionality of the, “Place In Region” feature allowing users to specify “regions” where Notification Windows can appear on their desktop.  Once a region is established, window placement is automatic.  Multiple Notification Windows will appear in the same region with a tiled effect, can have separate actions, and when one times out, the others slide over to take up the space thus eliminating any issues with overlapping windows.   This feature is available for use with Standard, Mini, Transparent to Opaque, Marquee and Mini-Multiple window types.

        The screenshot below illustrates "Place Window In Region" configurability:
