Adding a resource

Resources

A resource is either a Location such as a conference room or a piece of Equipment such as a projector or a TV/DVD used to show videos. Use Zimbra to manage them.

If you have resources added to your domain, you can add those resources to your list of invitees when scheduling a meeting, so that they are marked as in use if someone else tries to schedule a meeting at the same time using the same resources. This keeps people from overbooking conference rooms, or from trying to use the same projector in two different meetings.

To create a new resource from the Home screen, click on Manage in the left navigation pane. This takes you to the Manage screen. Make sure Resources is highlighted, and then click on the gear icon in the upper right corner, and select New.

Resources require a name and an e-mail address, which must be unique. Resources can be configured to accept and reject invitations automatically.

To understand the options available with Resources, click on the Help button on the bottom left of the screen.
