I mean yo set :

Customize the Response Message for Resource Scheduling


For one mailbox i think we used this command :

Set-CalendarProcessing -Identity "Car 54" -AddAdditionalResponse:$true  -AdditionalResponse:"All requests for Car 54 are subject to approval."

If this correct, then what would be command if want to give the same to multiple Resource mailboxes

It looks like you'd just change the text of "Car 54" to whatever the resource mailbox would be.

Do you have a list of the resource mailboxes?

Is it the same 4-5 lines of text, but just the subject/object referenced is different?

This is going to require powershell scripting to get it done, which I'm working on.  In the meantime, what I can tell you is that you'll need to put all the data into a tab delimited file so that it looks like this:
Identity	Response
"Car 54"	"All requests for Car 54 are subject to approval."
"Car 55"	"All requests for Car 55 are subject to approval."

Open in new window


Easy way to do this is put all the info into an Excel Spreadsheet then export the spreadsheet to a .CSV file (text file).  Be sure to have the text encapsulated in quotes.

CSV File Layout must look like this when viewed in a text editor. The header line is important (Line 1 is the header line, and the values must match the $line.Variable used in the powershell command):
"Identity","Response"
"Car 54","All requests for Car 54 are subject to approval."
"Car 55","All requests for Car 55 are subject to approval."

Open in new window

Save the file above as .csv, and then run the following command (below):
$csv = Import-Csv c:\path\to\your.csv
foreach ($line in $csv) {
    Set-CalendarProcessing -Identity $line.Identity -AddAdditionalResponse:$true  -AdditionalResponse: $line.Response
}

Open in new window

You'll have to incorporate linefeed or newline escape characters into the text you are importing - these are usually `n  - that's the symbol that shares the ~key.  

This`nThat
will display as:
This
That


Also, in reviewing the code, you may need to encapsulate $line.Response in quotes, because it will strip the quotes out as it imports the CSV value.  You'll need to test that.

So change line 3 to be:
Set-CalendarProcessing -Identity "$line.Identity" -AddAdditionalResponse:$true  -AdditionalResponse: "$line.Response"
