Twenty seats are reserved between 10:00 and 10:30. At 10:30, the number of reserved seats increases to 30. If this conference center's license limit is 100 seats, you could schedule a finite meeting from 10:00 to 11:00 with a maxUsers value of at most 70. At 11:00, no seats are reserved, but at 11:02:59, the remaining seats are reserved.

All the times are represented in UTC format. The time interval for the query might need to be converted from local time to UTC by the sending application.
