Hi,

We have created 2 new rooms and put them in a new room list in Exchange Online (all created directly in EXO)

 

We used this powershell code to create the new room list:

$RoomAlias = Get-Mailbox -RecipientTypeDetails RoomMailbox -Filter {Office -eq 'XXXXXX'}
New-DistributionGroup -RoomList -Name 'XXXXXX' -Members $RoomAlias

 

All works just fine and we can see the new rooms and roomlist in Outlook.

 

Problem: When you use Room Finder and select the new room list and then open the Scheduling assistant, the rooms are displayed by their SMTP address and not their display name! This looks ugly and we want to view the rooms by the Display Name.

 

If I search for the room manually in the GAL the room is shown by it's display name in the Scheduling assistant.

 

See screenshot for example.

Any ideas to why this is happening?

Hm, seems to work OK for me here. Which version of Outlook are you using? Did you try OWA and what's the result there?

Hi,

 

Thanks for the response! The problem solved itself after 24H. I guess I just had to wait a bit for everyting to work out! :)
