Book a Room in Outlook – Resources and Participants

If you work in a company where there are several teams but only a limited number of rooms for team meetings, planning the available resources is important. So if you want to invite your team to a team meeting in a specific room via Outlook on a fixed date, you should consider that this appointment may overlap with other teams in the room. This can cause embarrassing situations when your troops are standing in front of the room but cannot get in because the room is occupied.

In order to avoid something like this, we want to look at how you can invite participants to a team meeting and how you can also book rooms as resources in Outlook at the same time. This makes the whole thing much clearer and easier to plan for other teams in the company.

Before you can book a room as a resource in Outlook, Outlook must of course first know that this room exists and that it should be managed in addition to the regular e-mail addresses. To implement this, proceed as follows:

  • Open Outlook and click on the “Calendar” menu.
  • Click “Start a new meeting” to create a new meeting.
  • In the Meeting Options section, click Resources.
  • Click on “Rooms” and then on “Add Room“.
  • Enter a name for the new room and click “OK“.
  • If necessary, enter additional information about the new room, such as the maximum number of participants, the equipment available, etc.
  • Click “Save” to create the new room.

Important: Please note that creating rooms in Outlook can normally only be carried out by people with administrator rights on the Exchange server (required). If you do not have administrator rights in your company, please contact your IT support for assistance in creating a new room.

By the way: Since we talked about rooms and resources, it should be added that not only rooms are a resource, but this can also be equipment that may be needed for meetings. So if you need a video projector or other things that are of course not available in unlimited quantities and that everyone in the company has to share, you can also create these in Outlook as a bookable resource and add them to a meeting as “necessary“.
