Did you hear of room lists? What is a room list?

A room list is a collection of room mailboxes. Room lists are specially marked distribution groups that you can also use the same way you use ‘regular’ distribution groups. You can only create room lists using the Exchange Management Shell. This article goes over how to create a room list in Exchange. We highly recommend defining room lists to mirror your building layouts, so that the room finder works best.

We wanted to talk about this because we have now released the new room finder experience to Exchange Online Outlook on the web (and you should start seeing it roll out to other Outlook clients over the next few months).

Note: If room lists are not set up, the room finder will not be very useful.

Setting up the city property

If you want to have room list appear under specific cities, you must set the city property for rooms by using Set-Place cmdlet (use the -City property) or places API in Microsoft Graph.

Setting up this properly allows you to see cities under Room Finder, like the following:

1. List of recent room lists that user used or rooms that user booked that belong to those room list.

2. List of all cities where room list (buildings) are located.

Setting up filters

Filters for rooms are also set by using Set-Place cmdlet or places API. Some examples:

1. Capacity of a room (use the -Capacity property)

2. Floor on which the room is located (-Floor property)

3. Define other features a room may have:

  • Several properties that can be used to define the type of a device present in the room: -AudioDeviceName, -DisplayDeviceName and -VideoDeviceName
  • The -IsWheelChairAccessible parameter specifies whether the room is wheelchair accessible

Coming soon: to add more filters, the ‘tag’ property can also be set per room mailbox using Set-Place cmdlet (-Tags property) or places API. The room finder will display the unique tag string value for each room (see the “Bean bags” tag in the above screenshot, as an example.)

Room list FAQ

How can I see a list of all room lists without having to filter by city first or select recent room list?

This functionality is not available today but you can still search for the room list. The Outlook team has acknowledged there is a request to see all room list at once and will consider this request.

Why can’t I see all the cities that my company has a presence in?

There are 2 reasons why this may happen:

  • The city property for a room has not been set or
  • We are working through a bug that causes only a subset of cities to appear for some of our customers; if you have this problem, in a few weeks it will be history

Why is my room list (building) under the wrong city?

This is most likely due to an incorrect city value set for the room. Please review what the city value is for rooms and confirm it is correct.

I see the room finder in Outlook on the web; will the same show up in Outlook for Windows and Mac?

Yes. We are working on releasing this to other Outlook clients.

Do my room mailboxes need to be in Exchange Online for this room finder feature to work?

Yes.

Awesome - really like this improved way of finding room. I can only confirm it would be great to be able to see rooms without first selecting city or room list. Also getting this feature to other platforms than "on the web" would be great.

We sync all of our room accounts and room lists over from on-prem AD to Azure. Judging by the notes for set-place cmdlet, this is only working on cloud-based accounts. So what now? I will surely not migrate all of our meetings rooms over to be cloud based.

 

With the new set up, all of our meeting rooms lists in OWA are messed up, but I do not have any way to correct it.

Nice job! (not).

Hey @Oliver Weber I've sent you a private message to see how we can solve the issue you are seeing. If you can, please submit a support ticket as well.

Hi,

Why does Microsoft enable those features, then we start adding all information about the rooms: audio and video device names, display device names, floors, buildings... and after few months it's ALL GONE, only capacity is left. Few months work is gone now. How do you expect us to use something and then it clears everything we set up using the Set-Place command?

Any Plans, when this functionality comes to Outlook for Windows?

I had a hard time figuring out which properties can be set at syncronized Accounts from an OnPrem Active Directory with AADSync. Error Message was very unclear. Maybe the Documentation can be updated to be more clear here.

Frequent Visitor

Andres Bohren, could you describe what you found out about this with synchronized accounts? Thanks!

Thanks for the information. Can you clarify "If room lists are not set up, the room finder will not be very useful.'?

 

What I have found, and I am supporting a customer with this Room Finder as well is that I can find Rooms without needing a Room List in my region. I am in North America. But my client, he just happens to be in Switzerland, does not have this basic functionality. He can launch Room Finder from OWA and it just doesn't find the rooms that we can clearly see in the tenant. It sounds like a bug, maybe it's just a rollout issue

Coincidentally, we have created a Room List and that did not make a difference. Can you comment on the roll-out? Are there know issues with EMEA?

The following Parameters on a synchronized Account can not be set by the Set-Place command. This Information has to be populated in the OnPrem Active Directory. 

[-Street <String>]
[-PostalCode <String>]
[-City <String>]
[-State <String>]
[-Phone <String>]

 

Error in Powershell is not very helpful:

[-GeoCoordinates <GeoCoordinates>]

Don't know how to set the GeoCoordinates OnPrem. Did not find an Attribute for that. But honestly not needed, when you populate the Address.

[-CountryOrRegion <CountryInfo>]

And i don't know how to set this one. Sad there is no example how to set that. Tried "CH", "CHE", "756", "de-CH", "Switzerland". The Type "CountryInfo" is a mistery to me. Although it seems to be to be the two Digit CountryCode https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_ISO_3166_country_codes

[-Label <String>]

Don't know where that is visible. But we have already Display Name, Floor, and FloorLabel. And now another Label. Who needs this?


[-Tags <String[]>]

Tags seem to bee visible in the Hoover Menu. You can use it to show additional Equipment.

 

In my Opinion, there exists already a Propertyset for Additional Equipment with the set-resourceconfig

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/powershell/module/exchange/set-resourceconfig?view=exchange-ps

 

At least these  Properties are now shown in Filters 

[-AudioDeviceName <String>]
[-VideoDeviceName <String>]

[-DisplayDeviceName <String>]

[-IsWheelChairAccessible <Boolean>]

 

Also [-Capacity <System.Int32>] and  [-Floor <System.Int32>] can now be filtered. I like that. But in Outlook you currently can't.

 

I hope the Filters comes soon to Outlook for Windows.

The Geo Coordinates attribute now also has to be set through on-prem exchange PowerShell. The command is Set-User -Identity alias -GeoCoordinates "14,598643;-12,479087" etc.

What worries me and as I mentioned this already in one of the first messages under this post is:

1. When initially announced every attribute could be set using the Set-Place command even when hybrid was set up. So you could set up the address through this command as I have done numerous times. Then all of a sudden those attributes plus the geo coordinates could not be set through Set-Place command without providing any explanation of the error and no mention of this now being done through on-prem

2. I filled out like 40+ rooms with all the attributes using on-prem exchange powershell and Set-Place command and all was good until sometime before this article was published where ALL I've set was removed and I had to start over and search in mails for details of room attributes that people sent me and I had to set them again. I still am setting some of them.

How to trust those features if they are not even stable or consistent yet.

Thank's for the Tip with the Set-User -Identity alias -GeoCoordinates "14,598643;-12,479087

Communication might be bad here.

But i can understand that Attributes that are synced from On-Prem via AAD Connect have to modified On-Prem like any other Attribute of a synced Accounts.

Sure, I also understand that but it doesn't say anywhere in the Microsoft Docs article about the command that for hybrid it works differently. But mainly I have issues with it cause it worked with Set-Place and it stopped at some point and there was no reference to this being the problem. I had a case with Microsoft Support and they could not figure it out for a while, after which they finally told me that and also said geo coordinates can be set using Exchange Powershell in on-prem :)
