Is there a way to have a resource such as a meeting room be unavailable for a period of time, without creating a bogus meeting request? For example, a meeting room will be closed for renovation of a week.

While logged in as an admin, untick the box that says, "Resource is available" within the resource configuration. Otherwise you can, as you suggest, book a bogus multi-day meeting request to block it off for the duration of the renovation.

That won't really work for me. My intent was to be able to show the resource as "busy" ahead of schedule. If I wait until the start of the unavailable time period, other folks may have already booked the resource.

Resource administrator can create an event with Busy status directly in shared resource calendar. No meeting request required.

Spoke too soon, I haven't found it yet. I still end up with a meeting on my calendar.

Create event in shared resource calendar. It can be connected as shared calendar in Kerio Connect client (see below) and Kerio Outlook Connector.

I've begun to feel kinda dumb here. I got that far, but then, the only way that I can find to block the room is to make a new event. When I do, the even lands in both the resource calendar (good) and in my calendar (bad).

I am the dumb one here. It seems to be a bug that you cannot add event directly into resource calendar in Kerio Connect client. Sorry for this confusion.

Have you tried using the old Webmail?

Hadn't thought of that. I tried it, but no joy

When logged into Webmail as Administrator I could add an event to the resource calendar. Administrator was listed as organizer, but the event was only on the resource calendar. Logging in as Administrator doesn't seem to be needed, using an account with editor permissions on the resource calendar works as well.

The new client does not allow selecting the resource calendar for the event, so this only works with the old client.

When I tried it, it showed up on the admin calendar (KC8.4.1).

Here is what I did on our test system with KC 8.4.1:

* make a user Editor for a resource calendar
* login as that user
* in Old Webmail: go to the resource calendar
* create an event there

Doing this the event is not in the user's calendar, but only in the resource calendar. In the new client I was at first confused, because the calendar was selected for viewing and the event displayed with the user events.
