Resource room delegates

PRK 11 Reputation points

I setup an equipment mailbox resource with 2 delegates to approve booking request. The issue we are having is if user A approves a meeting request and User B is unaware of the approval and user B also approves the meeting. Then the person who requested the meeting will get two approval responses.
Is there a rule or policy that can be setup so when a delegate approves a request that the other delegate is notified of such?

    Nope, no such functionality. The delegates can simply forward the message to each other, or communicate it by any other means.

    Here may be a workaround for you:

    • Configure a shared user mailbox as the delegate.
    • Assign this shared user mailbox's full access and send as permission to need users (original delegates). -
    • Let those original delegates approve meeting from this shared user mailbox.

    In this way, there will not exist the duplicate request.
