Outlook 2003 calendar meetings: double booking of resources andupdate history

Q

QH

Hi,

We run a Windows 2003/ Exchange 2003 environment, with Outlook 2003 as

our email client. I have had a complaint from one user because of a

double booking she has experienced last month. Basically, she booked

an all day appointment for the use of one meeting room, but someone

else was able to book the same meeting room as a resource for several

hours during that day. Now I have checked the user's calendar, and the

meeting appointment there is booked correctly. However, when I look at

the conflicting appointments from the perspective of different

calendars (by opening their mailboxes). I suspect that these

disparities are the potential symptomn of the cause of the double-

booking. I was wondering if there is anyway to see the history of

modifications / updates made to the meetings, so I can see where the

mistake / ommision might be?

Kind regards,

QH

All Day Appts are by default, set as "Free" allowing others to book


during those times.

All day events default to free - and unless the meeting is truly running

"all day" she should make the appointments for working hours, which default

to busy.

Thank-you very much for your response, but I am well aware that a full

day meeting is shown as 'free' by default. That is not the case here.

Is there any record of changes that have been made to an appointment

that I can view to see what has happened?
