Exchange 2010 Modify Details Template to Include Custom Resource Properties

leave a comment »

After creating the Custom Resource Mailbox Properties that I showed in a previous blog, users need to open the address book and select the All Rooms address list, scroll to the right to find the description. There they will be able to see the custom resources of the conference room or piece of equipment.

Another option that may make it easier on your users is to create a custom details template from Exchange 2010. To do that we need to open the Toolbox on the bottom of the Exchange Management Console.

EMCToolbox

Open the Details Template Editor.

 

 

EnglishUserTemplate

Locate the language of your users (English)and open the User Template Type

 

 

AddTab

On the Edit drop down menu select Add Tab.

 

 

ResourcePropertiesTab

In the Appearance | Text section, type the name you want to use for the new tab (Resource Properties).

 

 

AddLabel

Drag the Label option to where you want to display it on the new Tab. In the Appearance | Text section type the text you want to use for the Label (Resource Mailbox Properties)

 

 

AddEditBox

Drag the Edit option next to the label you created. In the Misc | Attribute Name field, type the following ms-Exch-Resource-Display

AddressBookWithResourceProperties

Open Outlook 2007, open the Address Book, find the Conference Room created earlier with added Custom Resource Properties, Right click and choose properties. The new tab with the appropriate Resource Mailbox Properties should be listed.
