Exchange Calendar Group

In this step, we will create a group that will contain the room resources you would like PlaceOS to access. Following this, we will create a restricted access policy applied to the group.
This prevents the PlaceOS Application from reading all calendars in your organisation and negates some security concerns around the applications access to sensitive information such as the CEO’s calendar.
