Notification Groups include groups of users (and/or outside addressees) to whom notifications are sent when certain rooms or resources are scheduled. Notification Groups are intended to keep people informed by generating messages when the scheduling status of the item(s) in question has changed.
Note: Notification Groups only work for room and resource requests, not event request forms.
