Outlook 2007

We are having issues with private meetings in conference rooms using Outlook 2007. The issue is if a person schedules a private meeting in a conference room, no one can see the meeting organizer. So when we are trying to schedule a meeting, specially the the rooms are webex enabled, we don't know who to contact about possibly using the room. Does anyone know if there is a way to make the organizer of a private meeting in a conference room known?

Please let us know.

Thank you.

Sorry, no. The intent of the "private" feature is to prevent users from seeing things like the organizer and meeting details.


Would it be possible to override it by running this powershell cmdlet?

Set-MailboxCalendarSettings -Identity "5th Floor Conference Room" -RemovePrivateProperty $true

If your uses parameter, it will cause the calendar assistant automatically remove the private flag for any incoming meeting requests. This would allow you to see the organizer but would also take away any of the other protections that the "private" status offers. It would not allow the meeting to still be private but only display the organizer (it sounds like you are asking for that above). If it is okay to get rid of the private status altogether, this is an option.
