OFFICE 365 UPDATE:

Migrating Vacation & Room Calendars

Office 365


Public Folders have been traditionally used for Vacation & Room Calendars. You would create your meeting or put your vacation on your personal calendar then you would have to go to the public folder and make a separate appointment on the Vacation Calendar or Conference Room Calendar. Room and Vacation calendars that were in use in Public Folders will be migrated into Office 365 into their own account, much like yours and mine.


In Office 365, room or vacation calendars are referred to as resources. After April 23rd you will simply schedule your appointment and include the resource within your meeting invite! The resource will automatically accept in most cases (some rooms will require authorization). You will be able to add the resource calendars to your calendar view in Office 365 just like you would view any other persons calendar. Additionally, you can see the resource’s availability directly in your appointment request just like your other attendees.



When: Thursday April 23rd*,

April 22nd Wed. Make sure your scheduling is done

April 23rd Thurs. Transfer will occur, no appointments will be accepted

April 24th Fri. Scheduling will resume
