    We'd love to help you with understanding and solving the issue provided you decrypt what does "custom" viewing would mean and "custom" booking would mean?

    OK let me rephrase - I would like to create a resource room called "lab 123", and only allow certain users and security groups to see, book, and open this resource.

    Under schedule assistant in Outlook, I don't see it being possible to open permissions of this resource.

    Is this possible?

    only allow certain users and security groups to see

    You'll need to make permission changes on Calendar properties for default to NONE
    AND Add, you're normal users whom you want them to see the calendar to Reviewer.

    only allow certain users and security groups to book
    Next, go to properties of the Resource Mailbox and add those users/groups to the attribute
    Definition of BookInPolicy:
    List of users/groups that can submit an in-policy request for automatic approval - Value is a String: SMTP address; series of SMTP addresses

    only allow certain users and security groups to open

    Doesn't make sense cause this resource mailbox wouldn't be sharing its calendar or mailbox with anyone. So, no changes in this case.

    Too many email signature updates to deal with?

    Are you constantly visiting users’ desks making changes to email signatures? Feel like it’s taking up all of your time? Wish you could manage all signatures from one central location, easily design them and deploy them quickly to users? Well, there is an easy way!

    Granting full access permission allows users to access mailboxes present in their database. By giving full access permission one can open and read the content of any mailbox but cannot send emails from that mailbox.
