Room mailboxes have been available for a very long time now, and most organizations make extensive use of them for all their meeting room bookings. In certain cases, having statistical information about these rooms helps organizations plan or redesign their offices in a more efficient way. This information can show how often certain rooms are utilized, the average meeting duration, who tends to book more meetings, and so on.
In this article we will develop a script to provide us with some of this information and to serve as a stepping stone to gather further information depending on the reader’s particular needs. The end result will look something like this:

For the month of December we can see that a total of 115 meetings were booked, out of which 55% are recurring meetings. The average meeting duration was 46 minutes, each meeting had an average of 8 attendees and there were slightly more meetings booked in the morning.
