FOR ROOM OWNERS
I am an owner of a Resource Room. How can I see the Room Calendar?
To see all calendars that you are owners of, just follow these steps:
- Under My Calendar, click Settings.
- You should see a list of rooms for which you are an owner. Select the appropriate checkboxes under the Show in list column. Only calendars that are selected in the Show in list column will be displayed in the calendar list to the left of the event grid. If you do not see the Room Calendar for which you are an owner, enter a Service Desk ticket.
- The Room Calendar will appear under your My Calendar list.
If a room that you own is not listed under your My Calendars list, enter a Service Desk ticket.
Why can’t I control the reservations made on the Room Calendar?
The Rooms listed as a Resource in Google Calendar automatically accepts or declines based on availability.
- If a recurring meeting is scheduled and the room is unavailable for more than 6 of the days that is requested, Google Calendar declines the meeting series.
- If the room is available for all but 6 of the meetings in the series, Google Calendar sends the requester notifications for each of the declined days. The requester can then select a different room for those meetings by editing their details.
Although reservations are automatically handled, Room Owners can make changes to the reservations but should communicate these changes to the event requester.
How can I add or remove a Resource Room from being available in Google Calendar?
If you want to add or remove a resource from the Google Calendar please enter a Service Desk ticket.
How can I add other owners to the Room so they can manage it while I am out on vacation?
