Delegate approval for new appointment in shared calendar

Hi.  I have a situation where administrative staff need to make appointment entries in a shared calendar in Exchange 2010 where the appointment needs to be approved by a delegate prior to being posted to the calendar as accepted.  The administrative staff do not want these appointments on their calendar as they have no part of the meeting other than scheduling the room.  The standard configuration of setting reviewer permissions as the default, specifying a delegate, and forwarding an email for approval does not work here.  I have attempted to provide author permissions to the shared calendar, but then delegates do not get approval emails.

Is there a solution for this?  Thanks.

I have found that Outlook will not work this way with third party add-ins.  There is no solution.

Do you have the room setup as "Room Mailbox"

What you are looking to do is setup Moderation on at particular resource.

In EMC, on the Recipient, under "Resource In-Policy Requests" you can define a list of users who can bypass the moderation (Sr Management?)  and turn on Moderation for "All users" for out of policy requests.

Under the resource policy tab you need to assign the delegates to the room.

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

And does the resource booking assistant need to be enabled or disabled?

Is it setup as a Room or Resource Mailbox?? By default if it is a room or resource the booking assistant is enabled.

In EMC the icon is different for rooms, there is a EMS command to check but I don't remember it offhand
