|Resource Management in IceWarp 10.2.x
IceWarp Server provides a powerful tool for resource management. There is an account category called Resources. Within this category, administrators can create accounts for all company resources (e.g. cars, meeting rooms, projectors etc.). The most important feature of these accounts is a calendar (Events) that is used for managing of reservation requests.
There are two categories of users who can manage resources:
To create a new resource account, in the Administration Console, do the following:
NOTE that you can select individual accounts as well as groups or entire domains.
NOTE: After logging in the next time, the resource manager(s) will find the resource folders in their folder structures: To access the resources' calendar, see below:
Resource organizers can send reservation requests, which consist of adding the resource’s account into an invitation (Event dialog – Schedule tab, see Scheduling a Meeting above).
Resource planning is similar to meeting scheduling, but there are some differences:
IceWarp Server allows you to manage resources such as cars, meeting rooms, and projectors. Managing these resources is done by two types of users, Managers and Organizers. Managers server an Administrator role, resolving conflicts etc. while Organizers simply have permission to reserve resources.
