Conference Room Scheduling

To schedule reservations for BMB conference rooms, please use the Spartan Mail calendar system. Reservations can be made or viewed using the Outlook application. At this time, not all users are able to make reservations, though they can be views. Contact Steve Lundback with your reservation details if this is the case for you. Please see the instructions below for adding calendars to Outlook. The conference room calendars are named:

BMB.BCH_Rm208
BMB.BCH_Rm402
BMB.BCH_Rm502

Outlook 2016

To access a calendar through an Outlook desktop client, open the Home menu group in the calendar section. Next, click on Open Calendar and Address Book. In the pop-up, make sure Global Address List is selected in the Address Book pull-down menu. Make sure Name only is selected for the search box, then type in the name of the calendar you are looking for. The list will be filtered as you type. Double click on the name of the calendar you want to add in the list and that should add it to the Calendar -> box at the bottom of the window. Click OK to add the calendar. To see the calendars you have available, open the left menu sidebar by clicking the arrow at the top.

Office 365 Online
