For room/resource mailbox you can set it with below command.

Set-MailboxCalendarSettings “RoomMailbox” -AutomateProcessing:AutoAccept

But if it user mailbox then you can not.

First to find the pros & cons, convert user mailbox to room and set automateprocessing and convert it back to room to user mailbox which keeps the calendar processing settings AutoAccept. You need to run this from Exchange Server.

Set-Mailbox “User” -Type Room

Set-MailboxCalendarSettings “User” -AutomateProcessing:AutoAccept

Set-Mailbox “User” -Type Regular

The calendar in question isn't a mailbox per se, it's just a public folder set up as a calendar.  Do we have to delete this and use the mailbox you mention above?

But if we set it up as a private user, and not a public folder, how would people know what times are available without first opening up the calendar?

You should set it up as a resource mailbox.
