Back from holiday (gratuitous picture right), rested and recharged (allbeit with an airplane cold). I should point out to all those who were worried by me showing a bluescreen on the last post that it actually took us about a month to engineer that picture which is probably why Mark looks so inanely happy about it.
My mailbox got moved to Exchange 2007 while I was away on holiday and I thought I'd share one of the new features that this enables in Outlook when booking a meeting.
Here is a meeting request with a couple of people. Click the new "rooms" button on the right and add some rooms.
Then if you click on the schedule assistant, you get this new feature set:
The assistant shows you available slots where you could schedule the meeting. The dates on the calendar are colour coded, blue for a bad day, white for a good day to try. Click on a day and you see the slots and how many of the people and rooms are available. Much easier now to get together to catch up on those holiday stories - or plan a launch, whatever.
