How can I prevent overlapping appointments in Calendar View? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello all,

    I am trying to create a calendar through SharePoint to schedule and track appointments for my staff.  I have tried 2 ways now.  One - by creating a calendar.  Two - by creating a custom list and then a "Calendar View" of the list.  So far, the custom list has worked out better for me, as I can manage the content type/each column easier.

    My main issue now is how to prevent duplicate/overlapping appointments?  My other question is whether there is a way to have the employee receive a confirmation email after scheduling the appointment, or even a reminder email the day of.

    Many thanks!
