In Easy365Manager, you configure the “Allow outside work hours” checkbox to manage the scheduling of meetings in a designated Meeting Room.
Watch a quick video guide here.
You can quickly locate the setting by opening up properties for a Room user, selecting the Mailbox tab, and clicking on Room Settings. This opens up the following form, where you find “Allow outside work hours” in the Booking Processing section:
In Easy365Manager, the “Allow outside work hours” setting does the opposite as the ‘ScheduleOnlyDuringWorkHours’ parameter of the Set-CalendarProcessing PowerShell command.
The powershell command “Set-CalendarProcessing -ScheduleOnlyDuringWorkHours” controls whether the Meeting Room can be booked for meetings only during working hours:
Set-CalendarProcessing -Identity "Kingston-Conf-2.2" -ScheduleOnlyDuringWorkHours $True
When the parameter is set to “true” or the box in Easy365Manager is unchecked, the Meeting Room can be scheduled for meetings exclusively during established working hours. This prevents the room from being reserved for meetings outside of designated work hours, ensuring it’s available only during working hours.
On the other hand, when the parameter is set to “false” or the box in Easy365Manager is checked, the Meeting Room can be booked for meetings at any time, including outside of normal working hours. This flexibility might be advantageous for accommodating global teams across different time zones or for specific events that require off-hours usage.
