Configure a Room resource

This page will help you fix event titles and accept resource requests automatically for room resource calendars.

By default events scheduled on the meeting room calendars in Exchange and Microsoft 365 will show the name of the organizer instead of the actual event title, for privacy reasons (see Microsoft KB here To make the most of Mago Room, you will want more descriptive titles. This is easily fixed through some administrative configuration via Powershell.

You'll need to create your room resources before you can apply the fix. For newly created room resources, you will need to repeat this process again.

  • Run the Azure Powershell or Azure Cloud Shell as an administrator.

1) Sign in

Sign in with Modern Authentication

  • Enter the following command and follow the intructions:


or Sign in with Basic Authentication (deprecated)

  • Enter the following command: $UserCredential = Get-Credential

  • A dialog should popup asking for user credentials. Enter your login information.

  • Run the following command to connect to a Microsoft 365 session: $Session = New-PSSession -ConfigurationName Microsoft.Exchange -ConnectionUri -Credential $UserCredential -Authentication Basic -AllowRedirection

  • Then run: Import-PSSession $Session

If you see an error similar to this: Import-Module: There were errors loading in the format data file: Microsoft.PowerShell

You'll need to run these command: Set-ExecutionPolicy RemoteSigned

Press Enter , Y , and then run Import-PSSession $Session

2) Run the command

  • Lastly, run this command, replacing "" with your Room Mailbox Get-Mailbox "" | Set-CalendarProcessing -AddOrganizerToSubject $false -DeleteSubject $false -DeleteComments $false -RemovePrivateProperty $false -AutomateProcessing AutoAccept

This will allow Mago Room to correctly retrieve an event's title and description for every room resource. Events scheduled on the room calendar will now show up in with the correct name. Private events will remain flagged as private.
