Introduction

This guide is for booking rooms via Outlook or https://webmail.medschl.cam.ac.uk. This new system allows you to book or request room via your or your team's* Outlook calendar. There are numerous ways a user can add or invite a room, this guide demonstrates the 2 preferred methods.

a) METHOD 1: Requesting a room first to ensure booking has been accepted or confirmed. The user would then send second meeting invitation to the attendees, manual typing in the Room in the Location Field. This option ensures user has the room before sending an invite, but will create duplicate meeting appointment's in the user (invitee) calendar

b) METHOD 2: Invite (or request) the room along with the attendees, as long as the user checks the room availability only one invite will be sent out.

*Curriculum Team only at the moment, if you would like to add a designated account please contact the CSCS Service Desk
