Hello EE,

I need to know what path to choose.
I would like to have multiple calendars, each calendar will allow users to set occupation of a room.
Some people already have an email account and only use OWA 2010. I will need to create an email account for the new person or use a common one

What do you think it's best :
- create MS Exchange 2010 ressources so people can get access to the calendar of theses ressources
- create MS Sharepoint calendars so people just use MS Sharepoint to check the calendars. Managers or people with email account can connect their calendar to the sharepoint calendars and create event.

The next step is to create a form to create an "event" on the fly in ressources calendar or sharepoint calendars.

Thank you for your thoughts.

Hi leakim971,
welcome on the dark side.
It depends on what you want to spend. With SharePoint (on premise) you will have limited OOTB functionality for your scenario - but you could easily extend that using either third party extensions or build your own InfoPath / Web Part solutions (e.g. like http://blog.sync.com.lb/447/sharepoint-2010-meeting-room-booking-web-part-source-code )
I have seen some really nice InfoPath solutions but I can only guess the number of hours they have spent building this.
So in my opinion, if you need a quick and dirty solution, it would not be SharePoint. If you can invest a couple of days for implementation, SharePoint could be the right way.

Just my 2ct

Thank you Sir :)

I'm not sure to be able to use Infopath because the Sharepoint version don't have Infopath Form services. I will try to import the work as a new Webpart, yes, I've bit of time to spend  on this,
The link you provided is very nice, thanks.
