Would like to utilize calendar, meeting rooms & resources, potentially other plug ins or work flow to allow users to pick a conference room by selecting resource needs, and time, then getting a list of conference rooms to select from.

 

Example:  I need a conference room that can hold 25 people, has a white board and flat screen, with video conferencing available.  

 

It it possible to add those custom attributes to room resources in Outlook, and create a form, that allows a users to select needs based on those attributes, and a date/time, then get a list of rooms available that meet those needs? 

 

I've seen features for capacity for rooms, and separate resources that you can book, but nothing that can hlep guide the user through based on needs first.   

 

Curious if this is doable in Office 365/Outlook 2016, or if this is pushing beyond current capabilities?
