I set up the resource management and can now book a room from the NC calendar interface.
Is is also possible to book a room from a client software (Thunderbird, Evolution, …)?
I tried to add the room by using the mail address of the room (it does not really exist but I thought then NC can map it to the correct room). In the NC interface there is an added attendee but it is not in the resource tab. And when adding a second event (in the interface then) the
Checking availability of it never changes.
And is there any difference in the behavior between NC 22 & NC23?
Found out one more thing:
CUTYPE has to be
CUTYPE=ROOM, then everything seems to work

- exported a meeting created in evolution where the room mail address was added as participant to
- modified the
ATTENDEE field by hand from
- imported it again
This means, that the client has to implement, that I have more options for the
CUTYPE… (evolution only has
RESOURCE I think…
ROOM also seems to be an official one according to RC 5545.
Seems to work as soon as it is possible to set
CUTYPE=ROOM. Opened an issue for that.
In Thunderbird when adding a participant as type
ROOM the ics entry looks like this
The calendar then never “books” the room. Problems might be the
RSVP field in combination with
NEEDS-ACTION and the missing
SCHEDULE-STATUS (RFC 6638).
