SharePoint Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for SharePoint enthusiasts. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I would like to do two things with meeting rooms in SharePoint 2010:

  • Search them (scope to resources only)

  • Book them (Add them as an option to avaliable/busy in a SharePoint calendar)

I have tried searching but haven't found anything specific enough to my request.


We have them setup in Exchange right now, and have the associated Active Directory account, but I am unsure how to 'separate' these from normal people profiles when Profile Sync pulls them over to SharePoint.


I also would like to setup a page that will perform a search for only room information. Is there a way to scope this search to only show items that are resources (basically rooms, but projectors and other things would appear here too).

Booking Calendar

Is there a way to pull up a list of only rooms/resources when attempting to book in a SharePoint calendar? Will I need a list populated with rooms or is there some other method to do this?

Thanks very much for any links and direction you can give me!

No that link does not describe at all what I am looking for, sorry. I am looking to utilize our "resources" in Active Directory and implement them into a SharePoint Calendar, not a simple 3rd party solution that uses Lists to do the same. –  Kolten Jun 12 '13 at 16:01
