Populi tracks three levels of resources: Global Resources, which can be moved all over or off campus (vehicles, tools, etc); Building Resources, which can be moved between rooms in a building (projectors, laptops, etc.); and Room Resources, which cannot be moved outside of a room (a mounted TV, built-in projector, etc.).

After setting up Resource Types, you can then create Global Resources and add Resources to individual Campuses, Buildings, and Rooms. Global Resources are available for scheduling in Populi's Calendar (but not in Google Calendar at this time).

    Will resources be available for scheduling in the Google calendar soon, or should we just create items in Google, instead of in Populi for the purposes of scheduling them?
