Intelligent search of rooms

2) When searching for rooms:
Say I want to organise a meeting every day at 11-12.30 for the next 2 months and I need video:
If I search for a room there's obviously not a single room that's available those whole 2 months period so the search just returns 0.
Ideally I would like it to return a list where each day I would have a room but not necessarily the same one.
One could ask it to maximise the number of meetings in a single room, or minimise the total number of rooms used, or some other clever algorithm I'm sure you can come up with better than I can

If that would be too difficult, maybe it could return the room with the largest number of matches and then tell me that some of the meeting days haven't got a room, then I could try again with the remaining days etc until I get all meetings with rooms.

Maybe there's a clever way of doing this that I'm not aware of...
