Infrastructure improvements will be implemented soon to improve database stability. Pilot sites have already been migrated to the new database structure. Notifications will go out as database restructuring affects sites; beginning soon. For production sites, we are going to be recommending that you disable forms on your sites and refrain from making edits, as we will be copying databases and upgrading before switching in order to limit downtime to a fraction of a second.

What is happening? The rooms in the Outlook Web Application (OWA) are now grouped by building.
Why is this happening? This change has been made to address the Exchange 2016 default system setting that limits the number of rooms displayed in OWA to 100. This change should make booking Exchange meeting rooms through OWA easier. The room display limit only applies to OWA however the room lists are also available to use in the Outlook client.
When is this happening? The changes are effective immediately.
