Since SwyxWare v4.10 on the Conference feature with the so called virtual Conference Rooms is available. This article describes how to connect the access to your conference rooms with an Outlook calendar so that there must be an appointment within the calendar first to be able to enter the room.

This call routing can be done using the Graphical Script Editor as also with the Call Routing Manager. This article describes the script using the CRM.


To setup a conferene room you have to configure extensions for the conference user. By doing this you are able to setup any number of conference rooms which are accessible by any user (internal or external) as long as the extension is known.

It might be of interest to restrict the access of one or all conference rooms. This article will demonstrate how to setup a script checking with an Outlook calendar first if there is an appointment configured.

Please note that the conference user can be connected to just one Windows user account. Therefore there will be one calendar only regardless how many conference rooms you have.

Please note that this article is meant to be an example, the following "restrictions" would of course also be possible:

  • internal or external callers only
  • defined callers only (identified by their caller id)
  • access at certain dates and times only
  • access if there was entered a valid PIN only, see:
    Check PIN for Conference Room (GSE) (kb2377)
  • or combinations of the above

If you want to have a call routing for one or the other conference room you have to check for the called conference room within the script first.
