Private ROOM appointments in Outlook 2010

Hi,

We have recently migrated from an Ex2003/Outlook2007 environment to Ex2010/Outlook2010.

We previously had RESOURCES setup for meeting rooms that could be booked by staff. Under the new system we have ROOMs created. This appears to work well.

However, we frequently have a requirement for senior staff to book PRIVATE meetings, the attendee, subject &c they do not wish to share with other users.

I'm having trouble finding how to make this possible. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks

Hi bhenoniphr,

You cannot hide this info on a per user or per booking basis, but it can be hidden for the resource generally.

Try following the link below to set which bits of info can be hidden.

Actually its quite a big article. skip straight to the section below for the info you want.

"To control what meeting information will be visible on the resource's calendar, use the following parameters with the Set-MailboxCalendarSettings command:"

Hi Totally,

Issue with that is it'll block ALL appointments from being viewed. Surely this can't be by design - what if there was a legal matter being discussed in a meeting - we couldn't have all staff viewing the legal docs (attachments)

Exchange2003 resources allowed you to do this.

Is anyone aware if this really has been changed to the described behaviour and does anyone know of a work-around if so?

Thanks

Hi,

I'm afraid that is how the new exchange has been designed. You can control the properties by resource but not invididual appointments.
