    Post Resources in recurring appointments

    Hi there!

    I have a question about recurring appointments and resources. When I set up a recurring appointment with resources selected, are the resources checked for each and every instance, is there no check at all or is the check postponed for each instance until a few days before?

    Thanks.

    Kind regards

    In the appointment compose page, under Options > Suggestion Preferences, there's a Recurrence drop-down specifying the number of instances to use to check availability.

    Yes, I'm aware of that, but isn't that only for the visual checks in the appointment compose page?

    Imagine the following situation:

    I have an appointment set up with three recurrence instances and a resource.

    In two of the three instances the resource is free. On one instance the resource is blocked. If now save the appointment, what will happen: Does the resource accept the appointment or not?

    I can test this scenario, but I'd like to hear the general strategy behind this.

    Thanks.

    Kind regards

    In the scenario you mentioned, resource would not accept the appointment. We have https://bugzilla.zimbra.com/show_bug.cgi?id=66504 which tracks feature to allow selecting a different resource for the conflicting instance(s).
