Different versions of the Available Rooms tool may be defined to provide the desired level of visibility into campus locations for users. Individual Available Rooms definitions can be restricted to certain locations on campus, or to certain types of equipment and services. Once Available Rooms definitions have been created, they can be associated with the View Calendars permission within a user role to provide access as needed. Users with calendar access but no specific Available Rooms definitions applied to their role will have access to an unrestricted, fully functional search tool.
