Conflict Resolution

 

Outlook TBD Rooms and Conflict Resolution

When a user is presented with conflict resolution in the Add-in, they have the option to skip the process and come back to it later. The ability to define an 'Outlook TBD' room for each building in the database has been added (these rooms can be created in bulk via the EMS Desktop Client). It is highly recommended that customers go through this process to keep skipped bookings in the correct timezone, and will also allow for localized notifications and reports to be set up around meetings without locations.

Adding a Room

Error Received When Trying to Add Rooms

When using the EMS for Outlook Add-in, rooms that were previously unavailable (i.e., the room does not appear on the List View as able to add or does not appear on Schedule View), were blocked and unable to be added. The error, "Error Selecting Room," appeared.

Fix: Modified functionality so that users do not receive an error and the booking can be completed with the desired room.

Authentication

 

Security Template Was Not Being Assigned During First-Time User Authentication
