Room List in Office 365

This question is answered This question is answered

Can a room list be created in Exchange 2010 Online?  Do you have to use a powershell command?  Do you have to have a dirsync server installed in order to run powershell commands?

Thanks!

  • Hello,

    Remote PowerShell is available even if you are not in co-existence.  You just have to set up a remote PS session to the O365 servers.  A good guide to getting this going is provided at this (3rd-party) site:

    www.mikepfeiffer.net/.../office-365-connecting-to-exchange-online-with-remote-powershell

    After completing the steps, you can see the set of commands available by doing a get-command

    Now for the caveats: some standard Exchange PS commands may not work as expected, since we're dealing with a hosted, multi-tenant, beta environment -- adding users with the normal commands, for example, just won't work.  In addition, there are several O365 specific commands (account licensing, etc.) that are NOT present since they're still being worked on.  That being said, there should be enough here to for you to list out your resource rooms with the normal commands.

    Thanks,

    Chase

  • Chase,

    Thank you for sending me to that site.  It is very helpful.  I've downloaded WinRM.  Will try the remaining steps next Tuesday.  

    I should have been more specific in my question.  I'm interested in the new Room Finder feature with Exchange 2010.  I ran into a document with Powershell commands on how to make a distribution list be a "Room List" with the -RoomList parameter.  I'm hoping this will work with Exchange Online because I really need this feature for our company.

    I have no experience with Powershell, so I'll try to muddle through and will post other questions if needed.

    Thank you so much for the quick response!

  • I believe the functionality you are looking for is in Office365.

    From Outlook 2010 or OWA create a new meeting request and click "Resources..." from there you should see the "All Rooms" list that should show all of the "Conference Rooms" you have created (or sync'd)

    Let us know if this is what you are looking for.

  • We have hundreds of rooms, so we need to create more granular room lists for each floor of each location. The All Rooms list is not very helpful in our case.

  • Hello Markgo,

    All you have to do is create a new room by logging into https://portal.microsoftonline.com. Then select manage, it is located in the middle of the page under Exchange.

    1.To  create a new room for each location

    2.Under users and group, select mailboxes

    3. After mailboxes, click on new options

    5.Click on Room mailbox

    6.Then the room is created

    7. Go general

    8. Room name and the location

    10. Under booking options

    11.You can delegate users or you can keep it automatic
