Problem

At our college, GroupWise resources are used to schedule vehicles, portable video conferencing units, conference rooms, and even some classrooms. We found it necessary to create a set of rules to automatically accept or deny reservations, inform the proper parties, and avoid conflicts.

Solution

Create a series of three rules that automatically check for conflicts, accept or decline resource requests, and notify the appropriate parties.

Example

Here is the HTML version of the documentation:

Here is the same thing in Microsoft Word:

Note: We implemented the rules on GroupWise7. They should work fine on GroupWise 6.5, too.
