Fishbowl integrates with your Microsoft 365 Room and Equipment Mailboxes.
You will need to perform the following steps with a Microsoft 365 Administrator account
Note: When a meeting is created in Microsoft Exchange, it exists in the Room calendar separately from the Organizer's calendar. Fishbowl can only access the Room calendar, and not the calendars of Organizers. While this is good from a privacy perspective, it unfortunately means that if Fishbowl ends or extends a meeting, this is not propagated to the Organizer or Attendees' calendars.
