Can I allow granular meeting requests down to the minute, while only showing 15 minute intervals on MBRS?

For example, someone books from 18:30-19:40, however the meeting actually gets imported to MBRS as 18:30-19:45. The problem is that the next meeting does not get imported because the import function believes there is a conflict because the new meeting starts at 19:40...which in theory is a conflict because the previous meeting had 5 minutes added to it during the import. In reality, since the first meeting ended at 19:40 and the subsequent meeting starts at 19:40, this should not be a conflict at all.

Any way to work around this?

Thanks,
Nick

  • Yes, MRBS rounds meetings to the slots. One way round this is to set the granularity to 1 minute when you import and then afterwards change it to 15 minutes. The downside is that the day and week views will look a bit messy when you have multiple meetings in a 15 minute slot.

    I guess I could always go to 5 minute slots.... since I don't foresee items being imported more granular than that.

    I will be sending you the 6.6 MB file (I sent you the support request regarding the timeout issue I was facing in a previous post) that I am trying to import via email, once I can get your email as my sourceforge account is currently not accessible so I am in the process of getting my password and user account reset.

    Regards,
    Nick
