3. The Subject should contain your Name, Lab and phone number. Set the start and end times according to your needs.

4. Add the equipment by clicking on the “Find Resources” tab. You can type the name Calendar Name and then the Search button, if you don’t know the name the Search button alone will list all Resources. Verify the equipment is available during your meeting time by looking in the status column. A BUSY means the equipment is already reserved at that time, you will need to find a different time for your meeting. If the equipment is Free, select it and click add, this will invite the equipment to the meeting.
