How will this display within our communications?

Here is an example of an english email template set up which includes the booking resource name variable:

Thank you for booking the {{booking_label}} on {{booking_start_time}}.</p>

<p>{{resource_name}} will be looking after you for the duration of your visit and will be at reception to welcome you when you arrive. If you have any questions prior to your booking, please don't hesitate to get in touch by replying to this email. </p>

<p>We look forward to seeing you on soon, however if you need to cancel your booking you can do so <a href="{{booking_cancellation_url}}">here</a>.</p>

When a customer books, they will then automatically receive a booking confirmation email which will be constructed using the template we have saved above. This will then display as so:
