This topic explains how to use the Exchange Management Shell to set scheduling role membership. A meeting organizer can send a meeting request to any resource mailbox (resource mailboxes include conference room and equipment mailboxes). Depending on the scheduling role membership of the meeting organizer, this meeting request can be automatically approved or declined.
|You cannot use the Exchange Management Console to set scheduling role membership. You must use the Exchange Management Shell or Microsoft Outlook Web Access. For information about how to use Outlook Web Access to set scheduling role membership, see "Resource Settings" in Outlook Web Access Help.|
In some cases, the meeting request requires special handling to determine if the meeting organizer can schedule a conference room. In this case, an acknowledgement is sent to the meeting organizer, and the request is kept in the resource mailbox or forwarded to a delegate.
To set scheduling role membership per resource, you can use the AllBookInPolicy, AllRequestInPolicy, AllRequestOutOfPolicy, RequestInPolicy, RequestOutOfPolicy, and BookInPolicy parameters.
To run the Set-MailboxCalendarSettings cmdlet, the account you use must be delegated the following:
Exchange Recipient Administrator role
