***This is in Office 365***

User wants to submit a recurring meeting request to a conference room that is set for auto-accept. For the sake of this request, lets says it is for 10am every Monday for 20 weeks.  

In week 7 of that recurring request, that day and time is not available as someone already has that room booked for that day and time.  What is happening is that the because that one day is not available, the ENTIRE recurring meeting request gets rejected by the requestor. Is there any way for the room to be booked (accepted) and just the one day that it is not available to be declined (rejected)?

We are trying to avoid having to create multiple meeting bookings around this one day that is not available.  

Thanks

You can configure the room to accept double-booking, or you can have a delegate create the series directly in the room's calendar, bypassing the assistant. Or use one of the workarounds detailed in this short series of blog articles: https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/exchange/2012/01/23/recurring-meeting-requests-with-conflicting-instances-2-the-power-of-delegates/
