Difference between attendees and resources


Harlan Messinger

When I'm creating a meeting in Outlook 2007, on the Scheduling screen I
can click the button that reads "Add Others" and choose the "Add from
Address Book" opti9on. A dialog box displays everything in my global
address list, and I can add them as required or optional attendees or as

I can schedule John Doe as a Required Attendee and I can schedule
Conference Room D as a Resource, but I can also schedule John Doe as a
Resource and Conference Room D as a Required Attendee. What is the
difference between Attendees and Resources? What difference does it make
whether I denote an item as one or the other?

The main difference is that the fields correspond to the To, CC and BCC
fields. Resources are BCC, Optional is CC. Anything in the BCC/Resource
field is listed in the location field - you'll probably want to remove the
names and enter a location.
