Resource Scheduling in Room

Hi, 

I have a room and i want to restrict it so only members of specific group or DDL can book it. I am setting Scheduling permissions. 

 

The attached pic is what my current configuration is. There is DL in first option and there is DL in second option as well. I am member of second option DL. When i send meeting request to this room, it send me message that your meeting is pending approval. But who will approve this. Because when i set delegate from EAC, it remove this option. When i select this option, it remove delegate. So who is gettign email to approve it?

Hi Hasan,

 

The second option requires owner approval so that is why it stays as pending. Regarding the owner, it is the resource itself so the request will be in resource mailbox.

 

The easiest way to accomplish what you want is through PS:
Set-CalendarProcessing -Identity resource@contoso.com -AllBookInPolicy $false -AllRequestInPolicy $false -BookInPolicy DL@contoso.com

 

 

 

 

Also verify if:

Thanks Ricardo. 

So where this PS is adding a DL which requires approval? 

I have one DDL which needs no approval. 

I have one DL which should ask for approval. 

Rest of users should just get deny. 

 

Is there any way to achieve? Like someone else other than the resource itself should approve request. Is it possible?

Sorry Hasan i miss understood your issue.

 

I think you are only missing the delegate, have you set one?

 

Via PowerShell it would look like this:
Set-CalendarProcessing -Identity resource@contoso.com -AllBookInPolicy $false -AllRequestInPolicy $false -ForwardRequestsToDelegates $true -BookInPolicy DDL@contoso.com -RequestInPolicy DL@contoso.com -ResourceDelegates user.delegate@contoso.com

 

I could do it but it takes some time to replicate.

 

Hope this helps

Thanks Ricardo. 

 

Any idea why it is not working from GUI? 

Re: Resource Scheduling in Room

Hey Hasan,

It worked for me, I just added a delegate through EAC and configured the scheduling.

The powershell parameters I have used are set that way by default.

Re: Resource Scheduling in Room

Thanks a lot Ricardo. 

EAC is not working for me. When i set delegation on EAC, it changes the settings on Resource Scheduling in OWA. 

Re: Resource Scheduling in Room

Hi Ricardo, 

One more thing, when delegate accept meeting, the requestor is getting acceptance Accepted by Hasan on behalf of ROOM. I know this is because i have send-on-behalf rights after running that cmdlet. But is it possible when i am running that cmdlet, it set delegate as send-as? 

Re: Resource Scheduling in Room

it is not possible. You can add send as permission, although it will not change how meeting replies are handled.

Re: Resource Scheduling in Room

Hi Ricardo, 

Doesn't it support DDL? I tried this:

 

Set-CalendarProcessing -Identity conf-test@abc.com -AutomateProcessing Autoaccept -AllBookInPolicy $false -AllRequestInPolicy $false -BookInPolicy test-ddl@abc.com

 

But it is rejecting for everyone.
