Take a look here.

This can be done on O365.  If this doesn't work...they have made some changes to the Admin Center for O365, then you will need to use PowerShell.

If you are talking about on-prem, then no, you must user Powershell.

Hi Scott,

Thank you for the swift reply,

Sorry i didn't clarify, yes i mean in Office 365 Exchange Admin Center. The guide you have linked however shows how to convert a user mailbox into a shared mailbox.

I am still unable to find anyway to convert to a Resource mailbox.

Thanks,
