Add a hidden room in a list of calendar

Iron Contributor



In my Outlook I have a list of room's calendar to see before creating a meeting the room availability.


But some rooms are hidden and I can't add them to my calendar even in by using the complete mail of the room.


Is it possible to do this please?

Those are most likely already booked, or you simply don't have permissions to book them. Best talk to your IT folks.

For the moment I don't want to book. I want to see the availability of the room.

So I add it to a list of room in my calendar and I want to see the calendar.

But I have an error message. "can't be update".

I join some screens.

We're back at permissions - they can be configured so that you are not even allowed to "look" at a given calendar. Again, talk to your IT folks, they should be able to give you the answer here.

I am an IT folks. ;)


I already check the permissions with powershell.

The permissions are in LimitedDetails by default.

The same permissions for a visible room is working. for a hidden room is not working.

But is it possible in Outlook?

Oh, I think we're just lost in translation here. If you mean that you have toggled the -HiddenFromAddressListsEnabled parameter on said room, that's the expected behavior.

Ok thanks. So it's not possible to see the calendar in Outlook for a hidden room even we know the mail address of the room.

Nope, sorry. Same applies to opening a shared folder, etc. You should be able to access it in OWA though.
