Friday, August 22, 2008 7:09 PMI want to use the Meeting site template for, well meetings, all meetings related to a particular function.
When I go in to the Calendar and setup an Event and click the box 'Use a Meeting Workspace....' it lets me select the existing Meeting sub-site. However if I then go to create a recurring meeting it doesn't provide the option to select the existing meeting sub-site.
I've also tried this the other way around. I've created a meeting sub-site and then created a recurring meeting, which lets me select the meeting sub-site. However, if I then go back to create a single event and I select 'Use a Meeting Workspace ...' it doesn't offer me the choice of using the existing site, it wants to create a new site.
I'm using Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007
Is this the expected functionality?
If this is the expected functionality then I don't like this. I used a home grown product, based on Microsoft Exchange, for a number of years and one of the more powerful features that users liked was the Meeting capability. In it I could mix and match recurring and ad-hoc meetings. In moving over to MOSS I've been extolling the capabilities but it would seem in this particular instance it migth not be as 'good'.

I guess I'm a bit confused by the answer, the bit about 'this functionality will only work with a new Meeting Workspace'

Just in case someone cares and stumbles over this post, like me.
This behaviour is by design, and has not changed in SharePoit 2010 either.
New appointments in Outlook can only be connected to existing Meeting Workspaces of non-recurring appointments.
