With the release of the Office 365 Add-In, you can bring space search directly into your calendar system. To book an event using the Office 365 Add-In click any open time spot on the calendar that doesn't already have an event scheduled. Once you arrive at the event details page click the "R" icon and Robin Add-In should display on the right-hand side of the calendar. From there you can scan through the available rooms. Then click on one of the room images and save the event.

When you are booking through the Office 365 Add-In you should keep in mind that you are still booking events using your own Office 365 account. When you book events in the Robin dashboard you are booking through your organization's account connected to Robin (you will often hear us refer to it as a booking user). What this means is you may not have the same permissions on your account as your organization's booking user. So if you see that your events are being rejected booking through the Office 365 Add-In then it is most likely that you do not have the correct permission to book on that spaces resource calendar. You can check with your system admin in order to gain access to the correct calendar permissions.
