Open Outlook to Room List calendar RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am looking to open outlook to a room list calendar for display purposes of boardrooms. getting outlook to open a single rooms calendar on open is simple enough but I have a pool of 5 rooms that I would like to have opened by default every time outlook opens. 

    I can do this manually in outlook but want to set it up that no intervention is needed and create a task to close and reopen outlook daily to show the current day.

    If I could add the room list to the outlook/advanced/outlook start and exit options that should resolve this but I can't find info on how to add locations to this list.

    According to your description, I have made a sample to try to get the "Rooms" navigation group from the calendar module, but I got error:
     Dim objNamespace As NameSpace
     Dim objCalendar As folder
     
     Dim objPane As NavigationPane
     Dim objModule As CalendarModule
     Dim objGroup As NavigationGroup
    
     ' First, retrieve the default calendar folder.
     Set objNamespace = Application.GetNamespace("MAPI")
     Set objCalendar = objNamespace.GetDefaultFolder(olFolderCalendar)
     
     ' Get the NavigationPane object for the
     ' currently displayed Explorer object.
     Set objPane = Application.ActiveExplorer.NavigationPane
     
     ' Get the calendar module from the Navigation Pane.
     Set objModule = objPane.Modules.GetNavigationModule(olModuleCalendar)
     
     ' Get the "Rooms" navigation group from the
     ' calendar module.
     With objModule.NavigationGroups
        Set objGroup = .GetDefaultNavigationGroup(olRoomsGroup)
     End With
    I am not able to find any solution to overcome this issue, so I suggest that you could submit any feedback to User Voice:

  • I cannot send a screenshot but let me try to more clearly state my question.

    In exchange I have 5 rooms in a room list. I would like to configure outlook to open in calendar view by default to the room list that displays the 5 rooms so I can display this on a large screen for all to see.

    I can open outlook manually switch to calendar view and choose the room list but I want this automated so no user inervention is required and I will just have a scheduled task that will close and reopen outlook daily so the calendar is always on the current day.
