In the block below, note your name and phone number, number of participants, and any other notations regarding arrangements you’ve made for food, A/V, etc. If you’ve requested a large room for a small group please provide specific rationale.
On the scheduling tab add in the name of the room you would like to schedule (verify that it is available) and be sure to change it from Required Attendee to Resource. You may include meeting participants as well in this scheduling step.
