Step 2

On the menu, click Manage and edit resource mailboxes.

Step 3

In the resources overview, click New.

Step 4

Choose the settings for your resource.

  • Give your resource a name.
  • Optionally, you can select the resource type (room or device) and specify whether calendar conflicts or series of meetings are allowed.
  • In the Additional text for the automatic reply: field, you can, for example, insert notes on using the resource.
Step 5

Depending on the selected resource type, some additional information is now required. To do this, click Advanced Options.
