This topic explains how to use the Exchange Management Shell to set resource booking policies.

noteNote:
You cannot use the Exchange Management Console to set resource booking policies.

A resource booking policy specifies:

  • Who can schedule a resource
  • When the resource can be scheduled
  • What meeting information will be visible on the resource's calendar
  • The response message that meeting organizers will receive

To run the Set-MailboxCalendarSettings cmdlet, the account you use must be delegated the following:

  • Exchange Organization Administrator role

For more information about permissions, delegating roles, and the rights that are required to administer Exchange Server 2007, see Permission Considerations.

  • To set a resource booking policy, run the following command:

    Set-MailboxCalendarSettings
    
  • To control who can schedule a resource, use the following parameters with the Set-MailboxCalendarSettings command:

    • AllBookInPolicy
    • AllRequestInPolicy
    • AllRequestOutOfPolicy
    • BookInPolicy
    • RequestInPolicy
    • RequestOutOfPolicy
    • ForwardRequestsToDelegates
    • TentativePendingApproval
    • ResourceDelegates
    noteNote:
    When AllRequestInPolicy and AllRequestOutOfPolicy are both set to True, only out of policy requests are forwarded to delegates. Microsoft Exchange automatically accepts in-policy requests, and does not forward the policy requests to a delegate.
  • To control when a resource can be scheduled, use the following parameters together with the Set-MailboxCalendarSettings command:

    • AllowConflicts
    • BookingWindowInDays
    • EnforceSchedulingHorizon
    • MaximumDurationInMinutes
    • AllowRecurringMeetings
    • ScheduleOnlyDuringWorkingHours
    • ConflictPercentageAllowed
    • MaximumConflictInstances
  • To control what meeting information will be visible on the resource's calendar, use the following parameters together with the Set-MailboxCalendarSettings command:

    • DeleteAttachments
    • DeleteComments
    • RemovePrivateProperty
    • DeleteSubject
    • DisableReminders
    • AddOrganizerToSubject
    • DeleteNonCalendarItems
    • OrganizerInfo
  • To customize the response message that meeting organizers will receive, use the following parameters together with the Set-MailboxCalendarSettings command:

    • AddAdditionalResponse
    • AdditionalResponse

For detailed syntax and parameter information, see the Set-MailboxCalendarSettings reference topic.
