to see Google has the same meeting room scheduling problems as we have. During Guido’s keynote, a bunch of people came into his conference room claiming they had a reservation. One guy even said “this is Thursday”. Not sure if he meant today is (it’s not) or if Guido’s reservation is…

We actually used to use Google Calendar for scheduling the meeting room, but now there’s only a handful of people that can change that particular calendar, and those people have to synchronize by hand to the paper version.

  1. Amazing. Exchange Server supports scheduling resources with meetings, and publishes the resources free/busy information just like if it was a person. We regularily use the terms “Let’s invite the conference room and the projector to this meeting.” Talk about a problem solved a decade ago.

  2. @Jerome: you might have missed the point. The problem is not technology, the problem is the people using it. We use Google Calendar as well for scheduling the meeting room, similar to Exchange.
