Customise Room Resource work hours in Office 365

I have recently started setting up Room Resources in our Office 365 tenant and quickly discovered that that rooms are only available Monday to Friday 08:00 to 17:00 by default. Fortunately there is a Powershell command to modify this to suit your room requirements.

Interestingly when I tried this today if I ran Connect-EXOPSSesion with parameter for my UPN it didn’t seem to work.
