The Evoko Room Manager simply consists of an 8″ touch-sensitive screen that is placed on the wall outside of the meeting room, connected to the company Exchange Server or Office 365. No additional software is required. Installation on the server is as simple as adding a new employee to the network.
Meeting room creation for Office 365:
All you have to do it log as global administator for O365 on to the admin portal of Office 365 and select “Manage” from Exchange. (Who ever is creating the room mailbox, will have the right to change the resource in the future. Make sure it should be the admin user who manage it).
Before you create a room resource/mailbox, create an user who is going to get accept and decline the booking on behalf of the Room mailbox. Remember one thing is that this Room resources does not have any portal to manage the booking as it gets and someone has to accept it on behalf of the resources.
Inside the Exchange manage portal, Select new and select “Room Mailbox” (Room mailbox does not allocate license from Office 365)
Then create the resource with the name as required and select the “select delegate to accept or decline booking requests” and then add the user dedicated to this task.
