UPDATE: Resource Reservation Database does not handle meetings 24+ hours

Today I received the information from HCL Support that the current version of the Room and Resource calendar does not have the feature to span meetings with 24+ hours.

There´s a request for this option in the Domino Ideas Portal ( please vote !! )

There´s also a SPR # ASAEBQELLY created for this issue. So if you want this issue solved quick, open a case and reference to the case number CS0125933 and SPR # ASAEBQELLY.

Resource Reservation Database does not handle meetings 24+ hours

Last week I could see an issue with the resource reservation database regarding meetings 24+ hours.

Beginning with V11 you´re able to schedule meetings for 24+ hours and this is working very well ( thanks to HCL !! ). But if you also reserve a meeting room you’ll find out that the meeting scheduled e.g. from Wednesday, July 1st, 07:00 to Friday, July 3rd, 18:00, will only show up as a 1-day-entry in the resource reservation database.

Here are the screenshots:

After opening a case I received the information that this issue could be reproduced. So it seems that there´s a problem with the template of the resource reservation database.

If you want to refer to my existing case the case number is CS0125933.

After a great hint from Oliver Busse I checked if the free time search is working – and yes, it´s displaying the reserved time correctly:

Error “Operation failed” when creating reservation in resource database ( German template )

Starting with 10.0.1 you receive an error message “Operation failed” when trying to create reservations directly in the resource database with the German template.

This is caused by a forgotten bracket in the code. To get rid of this error you have to do the following:

  • Open the template of the resource reservation ( resrc10.ntf, resrc11.ntf ) in the Designer
  • Open the Script Library “SharedFunctions_de-DE”

res01

res02

  • Switch to the function “GetResourceInfo”

res03

In the second to the last “If versionNumber < 377” you have the following code where a bracket is missing in the marked “Else” statement:

res04

To correct this issue you have to replace the code with the following:

IsSpecList_Error = Evaluate(|@IsError(@ExpandNameList( @Subset(@DbName;1) ; “| + tmplist +|”;[IGNORE_FWD_ADDRESS]))|)

After this modification replace the design of your resource database(s).
