Outlook Calendar Location Dropdown

chasmant asked
Last Modified: 2012-08-13
We have an issue with Outlook Calendar Location History. When people use this dropdown for location it is not scheduling the rooms and people think that they have reserved a room and find out on the day that someone else has it
If people pick from the Rooms button everything works fine
Is there a way to keep people from having the ability to have the location history
I found this and I can clear it on login to pc with policy but looking for a more permanent fix

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

Outlook will recreate this first time they put in a location
Any help would be great

do i use the reg file or is there a better way in GPP

Both will work.

In GPP you can select the LocationMRU value and select to Delete the key.

If you want I can upload some screenshots how to configure it with GPP.


thanks I will use the reg
