Help your guests and staff see the scheduled meetings and events with this practical overview. This application will allow you to display meeting room availability on the selected Airtame-equipped screen(s). For this to work Airtame devices will need to have the same names as meeting rooms. We recommend setting 5-6 rooms when the TV is in a landscape orientation and around 9-10 in a portrait orientation.

Note: For Google hosted rooms please note that Room Overview will currently only work with a G-Suite Google Calendar account, as the "Rooms" function needs to be enabled.

    These changes should only be made by authorized administrators.

# create a PowerShell remote administration session and update properties 'AddOrganizerToSubject', 'DeleteSubject' and 'DeleteComments' to $false for any RoomMailbox type mailbox
