  • Click the drop-down arrow in the “Open Calendar” section

  • Click Open Shared Calendar

  • Type the name of the calendar’s listed above (one by one) into the search box
  • Select the calendar and click “open”
  • The calendar should now be in the list on the left-hand side under “SU exchange”. You may need to uncollapse the list by clicking on the arrow to the left of this
  • Repeat for the other calendars

Viewing Room Availability

Outlook for Windows

  • Select (tick the circle next to the name) the room’s calendar (can select more than one room to view multiple calendars)
  • Unselect (untick the circle) “your” calendar (listed under “My Calendars”) so that only the conference room(s) are selected

Depending on the outlook settings the calendars will open next to each other or combined in different colors representing each calendar.

Colored blocks on the dates will show when the room is already reserved.  For those who do not have “write” access, the details of the meetings will not appear – it will just show as blocked out.

For setups like this:
