Room Booking - unavailable if start / end time is :15 or :45 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all,

    First apologies if this is in the wrong forum.

    Due to the way our school day runs, we need to be able to book rooms from :15 and :45 (e.g. 10.15 to 11.15, 11.45 to 12.45).

    You can change the start / end time manually but if you do the rooms do not show as available and the suggested times only work for :00 or :30.

    Is there a way to change it so the rooms can be booked for a wider variety of times?

    I've googled this endlessly and the only thing I can really find that might be applicable is changing the timeincrement but I think that only applies to the calendar view and the start / end time showing 15 minute increments instead of 30 as default but does not have any impact on room availability.

    Hopefully someone can help.

    Thanks a lot

  • Hi Chris,

    It is by design and we cannot change the time slot displaying. Your understanding would beappreciated.

    Besided, it is recommended to add an End date for a recurrent meeting.

  • Hello,

    It isnt a recurring meeting I want to setup, just any meeting at all where the times can be set to quarter past or quarter to the hour and then be able to book a room.

    I forgot to mention we have Exchange 2010 and Outlook 2010.

    Anyway, thanks a lot for your answer. I will let the relevent people know we can't use Outlook for room booking.

    Thanks a lot,

  • We're running into the same issue and the post marked as an answer for this question should be removed.

    If a meeting starts on the quarter, room availability on the Room List will not show.  Is that a bug or is there a setting that can be changed to correct this?
