Advanced Features


This section introduces the advanced features of Meeting Anywhere: automatic confliction detection and resolution.


When a user proposes a meeting, there is high possibility that some of the meeting reservation criteria cannot be met. The reasons are various such as one participant is not available in the proposed time slot, or other party already booked a meeting room. The problem lies that the user DONOT knows exactly what is wrong. He or she might tries many times before a meeting is confirmed.


A feasible to that problem is to let the user enables the automatic confliction detection and resolution feature. Once the feature is enabled, the Meeting Anywhere system will feedback a series of alternatives to the user. Then the user is able to browse many possible alternatives and choose one if the alternate is good. This improves the success probability of meeting reservation.




Simple: Just choose the "Automatic Conflict Resolution" button when you propose a meeting.
