Can I automatically schedule shared resources?

A. In Microsoft Exchange Server, Exchange lets you set up objects that can automatically accept or decline meeting requests. You can also set up objects for such things as scheduling meeting rooms or audio/visual (A/V) equipment so that everyone in your Global Address List (GAL) can easily check for times to reserve the object. However, Exchange's built-in shared resource functions are pretty anemic. One solution is to install Robert Strong's excellent AutoAccept script from the Web site. The script includes a lot of the functionality that's missing from standard Microsoft capabilities, letting you set up, manage, and automatically schedule resources without a major investment in time or money.
