In addition to allowing the publication of Exchange calendars for public consumption, Agendex also allows users of the organization to login and have access to booking features.
When viewing the Agendex calendar from a public, non-logged in perspective, users can only see publicly available calendars:
Users who belong to the organization, however, have the ability to login; this can be accessed from the User Menu at the top right of the Agendex window:
You can login using your Exchange/AD credentials, or via the Microsoft 365 mechanism:
Once logged in, you will notice that you will have more options along the top part of the window:
In addition, more calendars will be available to you; anyone who has shared their calendar with Agendex accounts will appear on the left-hand side of the calendar. In this case, there are users in several departments, such as Administration and Operations, that have shared their calendars:
Clicking on the “Room” option at the top will display all the rooms that have been configured in Exchange, as well as their bookings:
Similarly, clicking on “Resources” will display all the available resources configured in Exchange that can be booked for meetings:
Resources can be pretty much anything that the organization wishes to make available to be reserved for meetings.
In the next section, we’ll look at the Availability feature and how to book meetings.
