Design in PowerPoint, Data in Exchange
We start with this prototype meeting room presentation that we want to use to show the information. Your company logo, of course the current time, the current meeting and next meeting information. Then is very easy to create since you just have to place some pictures and text boxes on your PowerPoint slide.
Also verify and set your data refresh rate for real-time updates during your slide show. For a meeting room booking system, it makes perfectly sense to requery or poll the data every minute.
Do some similar linking on other text boxes for the start and end time, as well as the name of the next meeting.
