Outlook Room Scheduling Instructions
Select the Calendar tab located at the bottom of the Outlook interface.
On the bottom left side, select the calendar for the room you wish to book. Note that you can select multiple calendars to easily compare availability. Each date on the calendar is represented by a box with appointments arranged top-down in chronological order. You can mouse-over appointments to get more details.
Double-click on the empty part of the box to open the blank event planner dialog. Double-clicking on an appointment will modify that appointment.
In a blank event planner dialog, inside the Subject box, declare the purpose of your reservation along with the organizer’s contact details. A typical appointment follows the format:
Purpose of Reservation – [NAME OF ORGANIZER ORGANIZER’S PHONE NUMBER OR EMAIL]
Deselect the “All day event” checkbox (even if your event does run all day) and input the time you wish to reserve the room for. Double-check to ensure you are not scheduling an appointment that conflicts with others. If possible, allow for a 30 minute buffer between appointments.
Click the Save icon at the top of the dialog to save your appointment.
