    Default Creating appointments on behalf of


    This isn't strictly speaking a desktop issue, but I didn't see any other forums so apologies if there is a better forum for this question.

    We have a new installation and some users need to reserve meeting rooms / locations on behalf of other parties that are not on Zimbra, and don't want those meetings/reservations on their personal calendars.

    There are two varieties to this situation:

    1) A secretary needs to reserve a conference room for 3rd parties not on Zimbra, and not book herself into the meeting.

    2) Someone needs to reserve a conference room for multiple days but does not want it to reflect on his own personal calendar. I.E. the room is busy but he is free.

    Any suggestions?

    1. Share the room's calendar to someone and let them create appointments/meetings directly on the calendar. Certain details of how a meeting invitation generated from this will work may vary depending on what's used for this (Zimbra Web Client, Zimbra Connector for Outlook, a CalDAV client, etc.).

    2. Book the room normally, but then in your own version of the meeting, set your availability to "Free". I believe this won't change the availability of the room, but you should test.

    3. Book the room, but when doing so, create the appointment on a secondary calendar which you have created. When you create said calendar, check the box for "Exclude this calendar when reporting free/busy times".
