NOTE:  Naming conventions for your bookings - The following depicts the naming convention when creating a booking: [Department Name/unit] - [purpose]. Also keep in mind that Bookings will be viewable in the Global Address Book, so using generic names for listings will be confusing. Booking pages cannot be deleted by a user. Please open a Service Desk Ticket with the name of the Booking Page to be deleted.
