Schedule an Exchange Resource in Outlook 2007/2010

Introduction

An Exchange Resource is a special Exchange account that represents a resource (conference rooms, vehicles, AV equipment, etc.) instead of a person. Exchange Resources allow for shared scheduling of these items. For more information on Exchange Resources at the University of Wyoming see the Exchange Resource FAQ (www.uwyo.edu/askit/displaydoc.asp?askitdocid=110&parentid=1).

  3. The dialog box that opens allows you to search for a specific resource, or view all resources that are registered in Exchange. If you are looking for a room, and a room capacity is specified, it will be visible along with any other amenities that the room provides (whiteboard, video conferencing, etc). Highlight the resource you wish to book and click the Rooms-> button at the bottom left. Then click OK.
