Add room capacity field to room finder
The room finder option was introduced in version 15.18 but our users depend on quickly finding what the room capacities of what our meeting rooms are.
The current workaround is to either add the capacity into the room notes or renaming the room such as <Location>-<Roomname>-<Capacity>.
Adding notes would work but it would be very time consuming to add and for our users to go through each room.
Renaming the room makes our display names a bit messier looking.

We are using the calendar as a room booking tool. Using the same vocabulary for 'meeting' with a person, is different than requesting room space. It would be the same functionality, just more accurate vocabulary. Our staff struggle to remember if they are meeting with a room vs. booking an appointment with a room, so that we can go through the confirmation process. It'd be helpful. Thanks.
Very needed feature.

Is there any update on this request?

Be able to open all the calendars in a room list.
we have many lecture rooms and room lists, adding them all for a sigle user takes about half an hour.
It would be good to be able to view them in a room list view as in windows.
This is a huge disadvantage for Mac users. Please add this feature

Please add this feature in Outlook for Mac - it should pretty straightforward, not?
I am using Microsoft Outlook for Mac version 15.22
As a user, I would like to see the value in the capacity field of when I am scheduling a meeting using the global address list. I cannot currently, but know it is possible because when I attempt to perform this same task on a PC the capacity field is visible when browsing the address book.
