Block Room Resource beeing booked during specific hours RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    we have a requirement, where a room mailbox (Exchange 2016 on-premises) shall not beeing bookable during e.g. 12pm - 1:30pm (lunch time). 

    Is there any chance to accomplish this?

    I am aware about this option, if it does what I expect it to do:

    Set-MailboxCalendarConfiguration -Identity <mailboxidentity> -WorkingHoursStartTime 00:00:00 -WorkingHoursEndTime 18:00:00>
    Set-CalendarProcessing -Identity <mailboxidentity> -ScheduleOnlyDuringWorkHours $true

    Even though I am not sure (did not test it yet) what this does. I assume that if I do so, this resource can only be booked during this time period (mainly because of ScheduleOnlyDuringWorkingHours $true). But even if this assumption is true, it won't solve my problme. Because my requirement is to specifiy kind of NonWorkingHours, otherwise I don't see how I can stop booking only between 12pm-1:30pm.

    Any idea?

    kind regards,

  • Why don't you simply create a recurring, daily meeting to block that specific time slot?

  • Hi Dieter,

    There doesn't exist a build-in function that could achieve this requirement.

    Vasil L. Michev's suggestion may be a suitable workaround for you: Occupy this time slot with a recurrence meeting request and set meeting room to refuse conflicts meeting request.
