Requires

  • Exchange Service Account
  • Admin in Robin
  • Impersonation access to calendar

Set up and permissions

Robin syncs meeting room resource calendars created in Exchange 2007, 2010, 2013, and 2016. Before pairing these calendars with your Robin spaces, you must first set up an Exchange service account with the correct permissions to manage them. Your Exchange server must also be enabled for NTLM authentication.

Pair the Exchange/Outlook calendars you already use to keep your space's schedule in sync

After connecting your account, you'll be prompted to pair a meeting room calendar with your space. If you don't see this option, you may need to refresh the page after pairing your account.

From the space details page, scroll down to the "schedule configuration" section > select Scheduled option. This means this space supports both scheduled and ad hoc events.
