Resource calendar in google apps is the resources present in your organisation like meeting room, projector room, company cars etc. You can manage all the resources of your organisation effectively with Google calendar. After creating a resource calendar, you will be provided a particular calendar for resource, where all domain users can schedule their events on resource.
Hello Guys, Welcome back to my tutorial on Google Apps. In this tutorial I will tell you how you can create resources on Google Apps. So basically resources can be, resources that are present in your organisation, they can be meeting room, projector and any other resources that you use like video-cams. So sometimes using Google calendar when you schedule an event you can book those particular rooms at particular date and time so that there will not be interference between between those events, like if i have booked a room at some particular time and in some particular date then someone else would not able to book the room at the same time and date because it will appear as not available. I will tell you about those thing later but now as a start we will go into calendars module and i will tell you how you can create a resource. So you go into Google apps and then you click on calendar…sorry my bad….. i will click on calendar. Now we will create a resource. I will go into resources module, i will click on create a new resource. Now i will give a resource name like projector room 1, you can give custom name as present in your organisation, then i will give resource type room or you can write meeting room anything according to your needs. I will write bit of description, you can define what that room is used for, then you can save changes and now this room appears here in the list of resources. Now i will also show you how to delete a particular resource. Suppose you have many resources in your organisation or may be sometimes it may happen that you may change here the names of the rooms, so you can also edit the resource, go into that particular resource. I will change here the particular resource name, i will put some text, now i can also change resource type, i will put simply as room, i will give some random description again and i will save changes. So this is the case when you want to edit a particular resource, name of a particular resource. Then i can also delete a resource if you do not have that resource in use at the present time, i will select the particular resource and click on delete resource, it will ask for confirmation ‘are you sure you want to delete the selected resource?’ Yes OK , I will click on OK, i am quite sure about that. Now the resource has been deleted. You see this is the list of resources. You do not see that particular resource here. So before deleting you should quite be well aware that you do not have any events booked on that particular resource and you do not have that particular resource being used in organisation. So in this tutorial i told you how resources can be useful to your organisation. Will talk about other calendar settings and other calendar modifications in calendar module and also in admin console as admin in the next tutorial.
