Access Room Finder via VSTO RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all

    I'm trying to set up an addin in Outlook 2010 with a form region on Appointment Items to display information about a room resource when a room is selected from the Room Finder. Currently I have this working by watching the Location property on the AppointmentItem and then updating the pane when the property changes and resolves to a valid room resource.

    This is really clunky however and I was wondering if there is any way to access the Room Finder region itself - either to watch for events or to modify the region content? I can't seem to find any reference to the room finder region in the documentation so I'm assuming it's not possible sadly but I'm hoping someone else knows different!

    Many thanks

    Tim

    Unfortunately, I can't find a way to do it in outlook API. Perhaps, we could do this via EWS.

    For more information, please review the following links:

    Outlook APIs for getting meeting room details whether room is booked or not

    Hopefully it helps you.
