Click on the room name to populate the schedules of those rooms into the meeting request. This action will add the calendars as overlays onto your calendar as well as any meeting participants (on the Guests tab) that you’ve included.
Once the room(s) have been selected, select the Find a Time tab to display the calendar with the overlays of your calendar, the room calendars, and any meeting participants.
The meetings already booked into the rooms selected will appear in the colors as coded on the bottom right. In this instance, gray for room 200 and light green for room 300. The view below shows the ‘week’. ‘Day’ view is also available.
Once you’ve identified a good time and room, be sure to de-select any rooms that won’t be used in order to free up that time for others. Save and send your meeting as normal. The room is now booked and the meeting is on your calendar.
