Showing images instead of status of the room

With Exchange, you can display an image on the ROOMZ Device instead of the status of the room. 

To do that, you need to adapt the settings of your meetings rooms, so that attachments don't get deleted from the agenda of the rooms.

  • The feature is available on Microsoft Exchange 2010 / 2013 / 2016

  • We strongly recommend the use of an image with a 1024x768 resolution, as this is the native resolution of the ROOMZ Displays
    Before a publication, it is recommended to convert your image using our ROOMZ Image Converter. The Displays have their own greyscale threshold. Using the tool guarantees that the rendering on the Display will be the very same as on your image

Prepare your booking System

Follow the steps on the bottom of the page for Microsoft Exchange On-Premise but add DeleteAttachments $false

For one room (replace my-room with the email address of your meeting room): 

1 Set-CalendarProcessing my-room -AddOrganizerToSubject $false -DeleteSubject $false -RemovePrivateProperty $false -DeleteAttachments $false

For all your rooms: 

1 Get-Mailbox| where {$_.RecipientTypeDetails -eq "RoomMailbox"} | Set-CalendarProcessing -AddOrganizerToSubject $false -DeleteSubject $false -RemovePrivateProperty $false

Prepare the ROOMZ Portal

In Setup - Booking Systems, under the Settings tab, activate Show image in attachments

    Another version, with different settings in the B/W Threshold:
